Everyone at Lions Gate is singing the Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes this morning.
The new “Hunger Games” movies has made $19.2 million including Thursday previews. They’re looking at a $45 million weekend. More proof that a brand name can sell anything.
“Trolls Band Together” opened to a Thurs-Fri total of $9.3 million. The animated sequel to a sequel has also made $69.4 million abroad. It was very smart to release it overseas first. The movie relies heavily on Justin Timberlake and NSync. Their song from the movie, “Better Place,” is a stiff on the charts, however.
This is turkey week, and it looks like the biggest turkey may be the horror film, “Thanksgiving,” from Sony. It’s made just $3.825 million in its opening. Maybe it should have been stuffed with more mouth watering treats. “Thanksgiving” may be undercooked.
“The Marvels” from Disney was off by 87% from last Friday.
