Two sellouts for my theater tonight. No idea where the ceiling for this might be.

That'd be great. An R-rated film with few to no action scenes did over $300m. Also, it would prove that Lady Gaga is not as repellent as some in the media have portrayed.

Fandango reports it's outpacing The Martian, Gravity, and Gone Girl.

Since its coming from fandango I will still remain pessimistic, but a $40M+ OW should happen at this point even if it turns out to be somewhat pre-sales heavy.

Great weekend but I can’t say this club’s odds have improved. It’s a long road to American Sniper, and a weekend like this was almost required to keep this club alive. 200m plus may be more realistic; it would represent a strong run.

Yeah an 8x multiplier seems ridiculous but this is gonna have a healthy run.

Yeah, while it is doing well and probably will, I have as expected overshot with this...still let's see the second weekend before I nominate this a fail.

The weekday numbers are impressive. It might improve from a great second week hold since there was initial frontloading with strong previews and a drop on Saturday. I’m confident about 200m at this point, and think 250m is realistic. If ever this club were possible, this is the start it would need. I can’t say it’s impossible.

Post Re: A Star Is Born over American Sniper Club
The Friday jump wasn’t that high, but with the weekday numbers it’s on pace for almost 200m. The final gross depends on whether the holds can improve. The first Saturday drop meant initial frontloading, but it was down only 21% week to week on Saturday. A drop next week of 25-30% could set the pace for a long run. If I’m right about that, it might reach 220m.

It had a great hold but this club is over. It was over as soon as it was created. :P
