Thursday Morning Update: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had the biggest fall on Wednesday amongst the new openers as it dropped 33% to 11,193, down from 16,799 tweets on Tuesday.
By comparison, Transformers: Age Of Extinction had 78,963 tweets its Wednesday before release while Godzilla had 48,112. We are predicting $40 million for the film on the weekend which will be good enough for #2 on the weekend behind the returning Guardians Of The Galaxy's $44 million.
Into The Storm eclipsed the Turtles for the first time on the week on Wednesday as it rose 200% to 21,078 tweets, up from 7,030 tweets on Tuesday. Very strong increase for the film and as such we are predicting $14 million for it over the weekend.
Step Up All In and The Hundred Foot Journey both had trouble at posting a big increase on Wednesday as they rose 1% and 16% respectively. Yes its true this was much better than Turtles in terms of increases but the lower numbers overall here really limit their potential. We are predicting $10.2 million and $10.3 million respectively for the films.
