Amid quite a buzz, Warner Bros’ In The Heights came out this Friday in the United States. The musical film was expected to bring a large number of people to the theaters, but the signs are not so good. Let’s see how the first weekend is expected to go.
Trading experts predicted In the Heights would at least collect $20 million at the domestic cash register during the first weekend. But the slow opening of $4.9 million is not a good sign and now the film is expected to earn less than $13 million. It currently plays in 3,456 theaters.
For the inexperienced, In The Heights is based on the musical of the same name. The musical piece had received good recognition, which paved the way for quite some anticipation for the film. Apparently, the Jon M. Chu director is also available on HBO Max, giving audiences the option to skip theaters and watch the movie on small screens. It has a budget of approx $55 million. Let’s see how it goes from here!
Speaking of other theater releases, A Quiet Place Part II deserved $3.7 million on Friday. It currently runs in 3,515 theaters. The film is estimated to be earning $11.4 million last weekend in the United States. If the film manages to touch the estimated figure, it will touch $108 million, so beyond Godzilla vs Kong’s $99.6 million at the domestic cash register.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It aka Conjuring 2 is expected to earn $10.9 million during his second weekend. The movie is over $40 million this weekend in the United States.
Stay tuned for more box office updates!
