This just in: If Clash of the Titans does well enough, they’ve talked about a prequel with one of the most liked characters. It ll depends on how Clash does if Warner Brothers decides to make and release The Kraken.
Clash of the Titans opened. Would it have done closer to $40 or $50 Million dollars had it not have been in 3-D? The world will never know. Currently, I don’t know the split on how much business was 3-D, but that’s a good number, and guarantees the film will do over nine digits, with a possible end point of $150. What it isn’t is Fast and Furious numbers. This my have been a harder sell, but this was also supposed to be perfect for the 300 slot. So I guess the film needed more homo-eroticism and enjoyable fascism. This doesn’t look to be a phenomenon, and I’m sure the word on the 3-D has gotten out.
How to Train your Dragon is performing well enough, and should receive a boost from the lack of new 3-D or kid film competition until
Hot Tub Time Machine is a push, but it could have been bigger. The Bounty Hunter and Diary of Wimpy Kid are going to get past $50, but that’s more a victory for the Kid. And, at this point, movies are still in theaters partly because there’s a little coming in, and when you’ve got more than ten screens, you can’t double up on everything. We’re a month out from the start of summer season. So let’s go.
