M. Night Shyamalan Old is projected to win Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins on its first weekends at the box office. Since COVID-19 closed theaters in early 2020, it has been a long and difficult process for films to become blockbusters again. Beginning It was one of the rare 2020 movie premieres to try to get people back into theaters, but it turned out to be more difficult than expected with various pandemic restrictions. However, 2021 has been better, with some films performing well all things considered.
Summer is traditionally where movie studios release their biggest blockbusters and watch these great titles fetch hundreds of millions of dollars in a single weekend. But, strong opening weekends have still been hard to come by nationally. A quiet place, part II, F9, Y Black widow they’re the only movies to open above $ 45 million, and only thirteen movies in total have surpassed double-digit opening weekends. M. Night Shyamalan Old and from Paramount Snake Eyes reboot are the latest high-profile summer releases to come, but it’s the first that’s set to win over the weekend.
Box office numbers shared by THR draft Old, M. Night Shyamalan’s latest twist-filled original story, to narrowly beat Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins. Old is on track to make $ 16 million in its opening weekend, with Snake Eyes lagging behind with a projected open of $ 14.2M. Black widow expected to earn another $ 11 million to finish third while Space Jam: a new legacy expects a 65 to 70 percent drop on its second weekend. If these results hold, it will be the seventh time that M. Night Shyamalan’s film has opened at No. 1 at the box office.
Before the pandemic, it would have been even more interesting to see how Old Y Snake Eyes It would be good if they faced like this. Shyamalan films are usually opened quite strongly, with OldThe estimated $ 16 million opening the lowest of his career. Meanwhile, the previous two from Paramount G.I. Joe both films opened to more than $ 40 million. In theory, movies serve different audiences, so both could have been successful under normal circumstances. But nevertheless, Old you’re still in a good position to make a profit on your small budget, while Snake Eyes will have to regain significant ground overseas for Paramount to feel good about making more movies in this new franchise.
The first weekends of Old Y Snake Eyesas well as the legs for Black widow Y Space jam 2, are the last reminders that the box office still has a long way to go before it actually “comes back.” Strong opening weekends for a small number of movies shouldn’t overshadow everything else. Now it will be worth watching how Old Y Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins continue to perform after these modest openings, especially with Jungle cruise, Suicide squad, Free boyand more competition along the way.
