Holiday Box Office: “Tammy” opens big, “Echo” OK — “Evil,” not so much

The late night Tuesday, all-day Wednesday-Thursday take for Melissa McCarthy’s self-penned star vehicle “Tammy” suggests it’ll have a healthy weekend, but nothing like a blockbuster. Mid-week holiday openings are trickier to gauge, but “Tammy” has already piled up $11 million+. A $25-30 million weekend added to that by Sunday?

“Earth to Echo,” the better-reviewed “E.T.” knockoff has earned over $5 million, so the weekend will be even more telling for it. Nobody has any real idea of what this no-stars Relativity release will do, but ow $20s all-in, by Sunday night, is well within reach.

“Deliver us from Evil” isn’t doing much of anything, but the horror crowd may turn out tonight and Saturday.
