March 10 Weekend Roundup: 'Kong' Climbs Over 'Logan'
Kong: Skull Island opened to a modest $61M this week, $32M shy of Godzilla. Nonetheless, it exceeded the expectations of many industry analysts, although our models slightly overpredicted the result by less than 10%.
The below chart shows our forecasts (lower bound, mean, upper bound) from last Friday next to several other industry forecasts and actual performance.
|Kong: Skull Island||$61.0M||($63.4M, $65.2M, $67.0M)||$43.5M||$46M||$45M|
We’ll be back later this week with forecasts for Beauty and the Beast and The Belko Experiment.
