Weekend box office: I Feel Pretty can’t beat A Quiet Place

After exploding on the movie scene with 2015’s TRAINWRECK, Schumer hasn’t been able to duplicate that success, with her last two efforts failing to open above $20 million.  I’m not sure if it’s a product of her choosing bad comedies to lead or if audiences are getting sick of her, but it doesn’t feel like she’s lived up to the potential she showed in TRAINWRECK.  It also doesn’t help that her last Netflix special was almost unwatchable.  But while $18 million for I FEEL PRETTY isn’t terrible, everyone involved with SUPER TROOPERS 2 has to be happy with the $16 million opening.  That’s a good $10 million more than the original opened with, proving it’s really hard to guess how much money a sequel to a “cult classic” (using that term loosely) will make.  But I’m guessing they’re going to start talking trilogy pretty soon.

So next week will belong to AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.  The biggest question left to answer for Infinity War is how much money will it make?  Early estimates put the number anywhere between $200 million and $250 million on its opening weekend, which seems about right.  However, it will be interesting to see how the film does long term, especially if one of the core beloved Marvel characters end up dying.  But the film is going to do crazy numbers and it’s clearly the movie event of the year.  As far as other movies opening next week, there really are none.  It seems no one wants to test the “counter-programming” theory against The Avengers, which is a level of respect the Star Wars movies don’t even command.  Note: the numbers below will be updated as they become final.

1. A Quiet Place $21.1m

2. I Feel Pretty $18m

3. Rampage $17.6m

4. Super Troopers 2 $16m

5. Truth or Dare $7.7m

6. Ready Player One $7.5m

7. Blockers $7m

8. Black Panther $4.6m

9. Traffik $3.8m

10. Isle of Dogs $3.3m
