August 4 Weekend Roundup: End of Summer Blockbusters
The Dark Tower failed to deliver to the long awaited fans of the Stephen King novels as it opened with a lackluster $19.1M. Katheryn Biegelow’s Detroit expanded to wide release earning $7.1M. Kidnap despite its numerous delays finally managed to pull in audiences at $10.1M.
All three films were well within our models’ confidence intervals.
The below chart shows our forecasts (lower bound, mean, upper bound) from last Friday next to several other industry forecasts and actual performance.
|The Dark Tower||$19.1M||($18.3M, $18.7M, $19.4M)||$17.2M||$20M||$24M|
|Detroit||$7.1M||($7.7M, $8.1M, $8.2M)||$8.3M||$12.5M||$8M|
|Kidnap||$10.1M||($8.4M, $8.9M, $9.2M)||$8.5M||$8M||$8M|
We’ll be back later this week with forecasts for Annabelle: Creation and The Nut Job 2.
