“X-Men: Apocalypse” is headed to a healthy Memorial Day opening weekend based on Thursday night/Friday numbers.
It’ll have $68 million tallied by Sunday, $82 million by midnight Monday, per Deadline.com. That’s in line with expectations. Word of mouth won’t cool it off but so much. It’s a comic book movie. They’re foolproof.
“Alice Through the Looking Glass” is riding its bad-to-awful reviews to a still respectable $40 million through Monday night. It cost more than that, but international BO should put it comfortably in the black.
Johnny Depp, however, may have dealt his reputation a fatal blow. Abuse allegations? Audiences do not forgive that.
“Angry Birds” has lost half its opening audience, and “Captain America” is finally running out of steam, even though it’s still in the top five.
