Early Harvest for Gardener

August 31st, 2005

The Constant Gardener gets a jump on the long-weekend traffic by opening tonight, but will it blossom at the box office, or shrivel on the vine.

Very early buzz was quite negative, but the reviews so far have strong, especially among the cream-of-the-crop critics. Unfortunately, this doesn't necessarily translate into box office gold. The film is aimed at a more mature audience, which is not known for rushing out to see a film opening night, or even opening weekend. But they also tend to have much better legs than most other films.

So look for just over $1 million tonight, just under $1 million tomorrow, $5.5 million over the three-day weekend, and another $1.5 million on Monday for a six-day total of $9 million.
