  1. A just for fun question – will Grown Ups 2 get above or below 10% on Rottentomatoes? For reference, the first got 9% positive.

    I’ll go above just for the sake of positive thinking.

  2. Good to see someone taking the risk with Pacific Rim. I almost changed my guess on the off-chance it blows away every expectation and actually opens.

  3. Looks like DM2 at 44M, GU2 at 42M and PR at 38M.

    While that PR number isn’t exceptional, it’s certainly not bad given the doom and gloom scenarios of a low/mid 20’s opening. There’s no chance of it launching a franchise and Del Toro’s big budget filmmaking future is a lot murkier…but he’s probably better off .

    GU2’s number is the perfect cap on this shitty weekend.

  4. This is a bitter loss, because what hope can aspiring filmmakers have of bringing original material to the screen when audiences won’t show up for a Guillermo del Toro robots Vs. monsters movie? Now Hollywood REALLY won’t do anything without an IP behind it.

  5. I don’t think a rich guy getting a nearly 200 million dollar budget to make a saturday morning cartoon is worth our tears.

    This is more of an indictment of out-of-control spending. If he’d figured out a way to make the film for 100 million: we’d be looking at a new franchise.

    Besides: look at the top 15 this weekend – 11 are original properties.

  6. Sorry for my delay. DM2 wins with $43,892,895. Lone Ranger drops 60.6%… Rob Wins!
    And TURBO is opening tomorrow, so I’ll move the due date to Wednesday night
