Thursday Night Previews: Logan Surpasses Strange, but not as Lively as Deadpool with $9.5 million

March 3rd, 2017

Logan

As expected, Logan got off to a fast start, earning $9.5 million from its Thursday preview shows. This is better than the most recent super hero movie managed, as Doctor Strange pulled in $9.4 million during its previews last November. However, it is weaker than the $12.7 million Deadpool earned around this time last year. This is almost perfectly in line with expectations and with 93% positive reviews, an $85 million opening seems likely at this point.

The Shack opened with $850,000 from its previews. Granted, that’s less than 10% of what Logan opened with, but it is more than double what God’s Not Dead 2 opened with last year. Granted, its reviews are really bad, but that is rarely fatal for a faith-based film, so a $14 million to $15 million opening is now possible.

There have been no numbers released for Before I Fall, but considering how poorly most people think it will do at the box office, I’m not sure numbers will be released.
