Box Office: It’s Ladies night, all weekend, as “The Other Woman” rules

otherPredictions by box office prognosticators figured “The Other Woman” were all below $20 million — enough, in some cases, to win the weekend, but not suggesting how the movie really plays to a female audience.

I saw it with such an audience early last week. And the lady pic plays.

As of Saturday AM, it looks as if “The Other Woman” could haul in $25 million or more by midnight Sunday. Will the Saturday business, boosted by w2w word of mouth, go up? Or down?

We’ll see.

“Brick Mansions,” Paul Walker’s next to last film, isn’t great and isn’t performing well at all. Maybe $10 million if it lights up on Saturday. Not likely. I guess his fans will turn out for his final “Fast/Furious” and that’s that.

“The Quiet Ones” is bombing, big time. Not even $4 million. Poorly marketed, a period piece horror picture with enough entertainment value on its own, weak but still with a few shocks to it.

“Rio 2” is about to clear $100 million, “Heaven is for Real” has taken the last hunk of the cheaper/indie “God’s Not Dead” faith-film audience.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” looks like it’ll hit $250/US before it is chased from screens for summer fare, “Divergent” will hit $140-150 before it loses all its screens. “Bears” is doing better than one might have expected, considering how weakly it opened,
