But, Ruddo, keep in mind that The Last Jedi isn't opening in China until 2018.

Late estimates for the weekend fall between $190 and $230 million, it seems: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=4353&p=.htm

Projections for last night's previews should be out today. Looking at those, weekend projections will probably be made by looking at the percentage of TFA's Thursday night total (which was around $57m). So if TLJ nets around $45m on Thursday (~79%) then the projection for the opening weekend will probably be about $195m (79% of $248m). We shall see.

it's a longer movie, so there are fewer screenings. I wonder what the average take will be per showing, and how close they are

They only played four trailers before the movie at my theatre. I remember 6 or 7 before the Force Awakens. Wonder if the film's length has something to do with it.

Remember when I used the number $45m as an example of what TLJ might gross on Thursday? First estimates are $45m: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=4353&p=.htm

Well, it's dime reporting it. Let's wait until the numbers are in. Also, if this is Jeopardy! rules, then Lenny won.

This is literally in the first post of the thread:

Quote:
3. We're going to wait until final numbers come out after the end of the weekend--quite frequently, there will be an estimate put out on Sunday morning, but we're going to wait for the final numbers (people didn't understand this last year, so I'm bolding it this time), which usually come late Monday/early Tuesday.


...and this happens every fucking year! I swear you're all illiterate.
