NEGATIVE

In previews that started at 3 PM yesterday, Sony’s R-rated Bad Boys: Ride or Die brought in $5.875 million. This amount of money is actually just 8% less than what was brought in for the first preview of the highly anticipated 2020 film Bad Boys for Life. Bad Boys: Ride or Die is off to a great start as it enters a market that has been troubled by the lack of movie inventory from the strikes and the lack of widely appealing films, aside from Disney/20th Century Studios’ Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes (which recently passed $144,3 million). Last night’s screening of the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence reteam received five stars and an 88 percent positive rating on Screen Engine/Comscore’s PostTrak, while Rotten Tomatoes’ audience score is currently at 97 percent.

Black people made up 36% of the demos, followed by Hispanic and Latino people (29%), Caucasians (20%), Asians (10%), and others 4%. The numbers fluctuate throughout the weekend. With 40% of the population over 25, men outnumbered women (38%).

With a $23 million opening day, Bad Boys: Ride or Die went on to become the franchise’s best-ever with a $32 million opening day and a $73 million fourth day. However, it should be noted that the threequel was trying to recover from a 17-year break between sequels, and it was also MLK weekend. With luck, Bad Boys: Ride or Die makes more than $40 million.

Previews of $1 million are being shown at 3,000 locations for New Line’s PG-13 rated film The Watchers, which marks Ishana Shyamalan’s feature directorial debut. That Thursday-night sum of money is comparable to Abigail at Universal. In addition to the negative reviews, which account for 29% of Rotten ratings, the PostTrak exits were rated poorly, with 52% of them positive and a star and a half. Whoa. This is the case despite a fairly equal turnout across all age groups, with twenty percent of women over 25 and thirty percent of men under 25. The $8 million to $10 million estimate for this film before the weekend began. Off an 85% Rotten Tomatoes audience score, Abigail debuted to $10.2M.

Below is how the remainder of Thursday unfolded:.

1. ) Garfield Movie (Sony) 4,108 theaters Thu $1.5M (-7 percent from Wed), Wk $21M, Total $58.6M/Month 2.

2. If (Par) 3,783 theaters, Thursday $1.02 million (-7 percent), Week $15.09 million, and Total $85.05 million/Week 3.
