Post The Hate U Give Predictions
I have a feeling this will be a hit after reading all these rave reviews.

I think it looks like a homework movie and only awards show people are gonna care.

Off to a strong start in limited release. It's a very good counterprogram to Halloween.

Looks like this is one homework assignment people won't to do. Not shocking considering the rave reviews.

Very good expansion this weekend. Looks like word-of-mouth is kicking in ahead of its wide release next week. Also is up to 97 or rotten tomatoes and currently certified fresh.

Its PTA will only be $6,000 this weekend, or is my math wrong?

It was able to pull on 1.7 in 240 theaters. With stellar wom could do double digits next week when it goes wide. FOX also announced that they're going to start an Oscar campaign for the film. With a budget of only 3 million this would be hugely profitable.

Reviews currently sit at a 97% certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. One of the best reviewed YA films ever.

Its gross nearly doubled that of The Old Man & the Gun, which saw a similar expansion.

Being not a comedy and with a heavy subject matter, it is not expected to do Love, Simon number. Anything over $8m next weekend will be great. And don't forget Fox is a half-asleep studio about to fold into Disney. The bo potential for their movies at this point should be discounted.

I'm reminded of The Perks of Being A Wallflower to be honest. In 221 theaters it had an average of $7,088. When it expanded to 726 theaters the following weekend its average was $2,962. I'm thinking next weekend it lands in the 4-7 Million range. Halloween is going to provide quite a bit of competition even if they're different audiences.

Yeah I hear it's pretty dark, heavy, and depressing. Apparently not one you'd want to watch a second time. But it is supposed to be great. Doesn't sound like a crowd-pleaser though.

I saw it today, it’s depressing but also hopeful and very topical. It's a fantastic movie, hope it does well when it expands next weekend; my (small) theater was pretty packed.

Is tracking to do between 7 and 10 million this weekend. Though I would not be shocked if it did more due to reviews and word-of-mouth. Fox was very smart to do the slow roll out to get word-of-mouth built with this film
