Every NRA member must have gone. And a lot of conservative media outlets and websites have been all over Clint EAstwood’s somewhat controversial film (apparently a whitewashing of the real shooter), and the endorsements put meat in the seats, as we say. Maybe $
75-80 $90 million by midnight Monday. That’s a January record. That’s set up to be Eastwood’s biggest hit...maybe ever.
“Paddington,” with its great reviews, is set to edge “Wedding Ringer.” Both are in the $24 million range.
“Selma” going wider on MLK weekend didn’t pay off, as the lack of Oscar buzz hurt the box office take. They also gave away thousands and thousands of tickets to schoolkids in much of the country. In any event, $11-13 million, unless there’s a huge Monday turnout.
