UPDATING: “Elvis” Thursday Previews Take in Impressive $3.5 Million Similar to “Bohemian Rhapsody”

Share

There’s a lot more important things happening in the news this morning…

But… the numbers are in for “Elvis” previews last night…$3.5 million is a actually an impressive take in wide release…just $400,000 less than “Bohemian Rhapsody,” a music bio that eventually grossed over $700 million…

It’s entirely possible that the much hyped Baz Luhrmann movie will make around $20 million in its opening weekend. But word of mouth should be good, and there could be a nice upswing on Saturday. So we’ll cross our fingers…

By all means go see “Elvis” and enjoy tremendous performances from Austin Butler and Tom Hanks, one of our finest ever actors…
