2nd UPDATE, 8:15 pm. We now hear the rebel Wilson comedy of the New Line Is not it romantic? leads opposite Universal / Blumhouse Happy death 2U, $ 1.75 million to 1 million USD in their opening days. There is nothing to worry about, as business will recover tomorrow, on Valentine's Day and until the weekend.
No title had a preview last night, and that's all a discount to the six-day Presidents Day track. Both Warners and Uni count as "previews" for both films today. Uni explicitly bowed HDD2U today out of respect for the one-year anniversary of the Parkland Shooting (tomorrow).
Fox's Alita: Battle Angel This morning at 7 pm, the preview started, before starting tomorrow all day. Produced by Robert Rodriguez and produced by Lightstorm, the film is played at 3,790 locations with the complete suite of Imax, Dolby and 3D.
Happy death 2U is booked at 3,149 locations while romantic is at 3,444. On Fandango we hear romantic is the top ticket vendor who goes into the weekend; Alita Comps are heavy here because counterprogramming on a Wednesday in February usually does not bow. On the bright side, romantic Seems to do a little more business than Fox's Valentine's Preview That means war, In 2012, 1.6 million dollars were recorded. On this picture were Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy.
Yesterday's preview shows how these pictures will turn out.
