‘Sonic The Hedgehog 2’ rockets to $6.25 million in previews – Deadline

FRIDAY TIME: No, family cinema-goers were never gone.

Have you heard that Disney CEO Bob Chapek? (Admit it: it was always about the seasonal churn rate at Disney+; that’s why To redden skipped cinemas).

Families turned Spider-Man: No Way Home into the third highest-grossing film of all time at $803 million, and they held singing 2 in the top 10, 14 of 15 weekends of the picture for a total of $162 million in the United States. And that family audiences haven’t lost their appetite for going to the movies during the pandemic, Paramount underscores Sonic the Hedgehog 2, what we’re hearing from industry sources is bound for a $23-$26M Friday (including $6.25 million preview), for what is considered a at this moment $60 to $65 million Opening in 4,234 cinemas. That’s more than the $58 million for 3 days of the first film. This is Paramount’s 5th slam dunk, #1 opening during the post-pandemic A Quiet Place: Part II, Scream, Jackass Forever and The Lost City. There’s a lot of optimism out there among sources that sound 2 will climb higher once matinees go into effect.

Universal

Off the Road and Broken is the Michael Bay action film from Universal/Endeavour Content. Ambulance, with a $2.8M probably Friday and $7.25 million Opened in 3,412 cinemas at number 4. And the film has all Imax screens. Well, before we blame that person, that person, and Bay, the film serves as a reality check while going to the cinema roars back. Essentially, moviegoers have become more discerning during the pandemic, and they’re particularly picky about the types of films they’ll see. a miracle, sonic the hedgehog, is worth the price, especially if you go to the cinema 2 to 3 times a year. But if it looks like an action movie they saw in a Netflix queue, they won’t bother watching it. ambulance is obviously in a 17 day window, and given that older guys will be waiting to see this at home. All of this despite the fact that the film received the best reviews of Bay’s career, Jake Gyllenhaal does fairly well in the role, and Universal’s marketing materials have been well tested. Times have changed and a brilliant film like 1994 speed would have a hard time in today’s cinema economy. In addition, when it comes to action movies in cinemas today, the superhero movies pack a punch, everything else is B-rated. They stole something like Standard from the air Ambulance. ambulance met in November 2020.

Meanwhile a movie like Lost City, a combination of romantic comedy and adventure; that’s another genre that we don’t always see. It’s not overstocked, and because it had the right star package, it opened at $30.4 million. It appealed directly to women, and in the last two years there haven’t been that many female demos. The Sandra Bullock-Channing Tatum film hits 3,797 theaters this weekend $2.5 million today, -42% from a week ago for a 3 day $8.5M to $9M in 3rd place, -39%, for a running total of $68.6 million at the top end through Sunday.

Sony’s disease Out of Blood in Weekend 2 is fully booked in 4,268 cinemas $9M-$9.3M in 2nd place, -76% at the high end, for a running total of $56.1M. The film topped WW $100 million yesterday; Its current global revenue is $102.7 million ahead of the weekend.

In relation to Ambulance, The good news is that it’s double the preview number of Universal’s previous action dud the 355, which grossed $350,000 in 2,300 theaters starting at 7 p.m. on its Thursday. The irony here with ambulance is that it’s the most critically acclaimed film of director Michael Bay’s career – coupled with The stone, which was also 68% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes — but the film won’t make double digits when it opens.

The logical question is why wasn’t this sent to Peacock day by day. As far as I know, Universal wanted to get into the Bay business and got a negative contribution from Endeavor Content, which financed the picture with Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Eiza González for an estimated $40 million. Universal’s only right to show off is that ambulance was cheap. After the picture’s disastrous grossing of $20 million in 59 countries, Uni is already dealing with the reality that this vehicle is broken.
