Friday Estimates by Klady

Jackass Number Two will open about 25% ahead of Jackass, which is pretty good, but not sensational. It suggests that the core for this franchise remains about the same, while it probably got some expansion via Home Entertainment and a lack of product in the theaters for audiences that you might not expect to be rushing to Jackass (

I don’t think Len Klady has returned from Toronto yet, so I don’t think we’ll be seeing his box office report until tomorrow…

4-Day Weekend Estimates by Klady

No real surprises this weekend.
Crank, the teen skewing actioner, fell behind Invincible, the family feel good, after Crank had a slight lead on Friday.
The Wicker Man was less of an unmitigated disaster than it could have been.
Little Miss Sunshine continues to build effectively on word of mouth and simple, clean ads. My $50 million guess on the film

Box Office Hell – 09/01/06

Quote Unquotesee all »

“I really want to see The Irishman. I’ve heard it’s big brother Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece. But I really can’t find the time. The promotion schedule is so tight, there’s no opportunity to see a three and a half-hour movie. But I really want to see it. In 2017, right before Okja’s New York premiere, I had the chance to go to Scorsese’s office, which is in the DGA building. There’s a lovely screening room there, too, with film prints that he’s collected. I talked to him for about an hour. There’s no movie he hasn’t seen, even Korean films. We talked about what he’s seen and his past work. It was a glorious day. I’ve loved his work since I was in college. Who doesn’t? Anyone involved with movies must feel the same way.”
~ Bong Joon-ho

“But okay, I promise you now that if I ever retire again, I’m going to ensure that I can’t walk it back. I’ll post a series of the most disgusting, offensive, outrageous statements you can ever imagine. That way it will be impossible for me to ever be employed again. No one is going to take my calls. No one is going to want to be seen with me. Oh, it will be scorched earth. I will have torched everything. I’m going to flame out in the most legendary fashion.”
~ Steven Soderbergh
