Okay, so it’s first week was wide with 2624 screens, theaters, or prints (I’m not exactly sure.) Surprisingly, for it’s next week, it added another 5 playdates to end up at 2629 prints, screens or theaters. And tomorrow for it’s 3rd week, it’s declining by 1154, so it’ll be 1475. This, according to box office mojo.
Hopefully the decline will increase the per screen average but considering how it did it’s second week, with a 63% drop, it probably won’t.
Week 3: Grindhouse (Weinstein / Dimension) / 1,475 (-1154) / 3
Also, and I don’t have any proof of this, but doesn’t it seem that despite how good the movie is, how well it’s reviewed and other similar factors, that some people are seeing the film based on how well it peforms? That some people are actually thinking, “oh, it’s not doing too good. I think I’ll pass.” If that’s the case, that might be an important reason why studios are so anxious to release their successful figures.
Anyone have any predictions when this this version of Grindhouse will be completely out of theaters? I’m glad it’s survived at least 3 weeks out.
