Close race at the top
YA adaptation newcomer and superhero extravaganza go neck and neck during a soft weekend at the North American box office.
R.J. Cutler’s big screen version of Gayle Forman’s bestseller, ‘If I Stay’, starring Chloë Grace Moretz, slowed after a lively start and finished Friday night on a slightly disappointing $6.8m (including $1.1m from Thursday night previews). This puts it on pace for a $16.5m weekend after factoring in both positive word of mouth from an ‘A- CinemaScore’ and genre front loading.
Disney/Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was $2m behind on Friday but should perform stronger on Saturday and Sunday for a tight weekend win. It’s the film’s fourth week in play.
Sony TriStar’s sport drama, ‘When the Game Stands Tall’, opened with a $3m Friday and should gross a solid $10m+ over the weekend ahead of market expectations after receiving an ‘A- CinemaScore’
And the other wide weekend opener, Frank Miller‘s and Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill’, bombed with a truly appalling $2.6m. The delayed ‘R’-rated sequel – nine years after the original – will struggle to hit $8m over the three days. The ‘B- CinemaScore’ will not help word of mouth.purchase sildalis online Spain
