Doesn’t $23 million sound like a lot of money? It is! But that’s also a soft Thursday preview night for “The Lion King” reboot.
“The Lion King” previewed almost everywhere it opens tonight officially– in 4,250 theaters, the widest release in the history of greed.
Anyway. tomorrow’s Friday numbers will include that $23 million. So we could be looking at $100 million for three days.
Tepid reviews haven’t shooed off the audience. Familiarity will draw customers. Also Beyonce’s number 1 album “The Gift,” should be valued added.
And then there’s air conditioning. Box office should be up this weekend as over heated fans seek cooling areas. What’s better than a movie theater?
