Long Range Tracking: ‘Overboard’ Stakes Claim on Former ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Release Date

Following last week’s big release date move from Disney and Marvel, the weekend of May 4 was left without any wide releases until Lionsgate/Pantelion decided to push back the Overboard remake from its planned April release to the first weekend of May. It’s a smart move for the studio hoping to counter-program what is likely to be another big second weekend for Avengers: Infinity War. Check out Boxoffice’s early analysis on the Marvel film.

In the wake of that big release change, Rampage and Traffik also moved up on the calendar. Those and other updates can be found in the report below.

Bad Samaritan has also moved from April 27 to May 4, although we’re holding off on public forecasts at this time until the extent of its planned wide release from Electric Entertainment is confirmed.

    I’m 100% sure rampage will be $150 million on domestic market.. You underrated the rock star power.. And by the way you prediction jumanji welcome to the jungle only $175 million on domestic market.. And it almost $400million gross on domestic market

    I think you have Rampage way too low. The Rock is a huge movie star. And coming off the success of Jumanji proves it. No Rampage won’t do those numbers but I say 45 million in it’s opening weekend and ends it’s run with 140 million

    A Quiet Place is trending upwards. Can see it topping $100 million domestically.

    I think Avengers: Infinity War can open above $220 million. With Black Panther hype leading into it and the trailer showing a ton of the Black Panther cast and Wakanda I think it’ll have the force behind it to open higher than the current prediction. If reviews are 90% or higher look for a giant domestic gross over $600 million.
