Warner Brothers underestimated “A Star is Born” for the regular three day weekend.
Originally the studio said the film made $42.5 million from previews through Sunday. But that guesstimate was on Sunday morning. Little did they know…
The final total for the three day weekend was $44.2 million. Then on Monday the Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga hit took in another $6.7 million. The total through Monday night was $51 million. Later today– Wednesday– the Tuesday numbers will come in. Business is booming!
“Venom” is up to $90 million in four days, but that was to be expected. The new film in the equation– Damien Chazelle’s must-see “First Man”– opens Friday.
Also not to be missed: “The Hate U Give,” George Tillman Jr.’s important and engrossing– with a great screenplay by the late Audrey Wells– exploration of police violence. Russell Hornsby leads an excellent cast.
