Thursday Morning Update: Tammy reportedly grabbed $1.3 million from its midnight shows on Tuesday night which signalled a strong beginning for the comedy. On the Twitter-front it generated a hefty 17,224 tweets on its opening day Wednesday to lead the newcomers. By comparison, The Other Woman had 12,217 tweets its opening day, and Neighbors had 32,276. It is looking primed for big things here, and while it might not be Neighbors huge, we predict it will come in around $38 million over the five day weekend.
Deliver Us From Evil dropped to number 2 amongst the new openers for the first time this week yesterday as it came in with 16,066 tweets on the day. By comparison, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones had 30,971 the day of release, Oculus had 21,719 and The Quiet Ones had 2,919. We are predicting $20.3 million over the five day holiday and $12.5 million over the weekend.
Earth To Echo had 10,331 tweets on its opening day Wednesday, rising from 3,416 tweets on Tuesday. This was the biggest jump of the new openers and is once again very heartening. By comparison, Super 8 had 12,319 tweets its opening day, and Chronicle had 24,399. The profile of this has been on the rise over the week and with this big bump on release day in buzz we are predicting $16.8 million over the five day period and $11 million over the weekend.
