‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Movie Expected To Be Second-Best Valentine’s Day …
January 25, 2015 - Fifty Shades of Grey
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is gearing adult to have one of a many considerable Valentine’s Day opening weekends in film history. Early projections contend a film instrumentation of E.L. James’ best-selling amorous novel will strech record-breaking box-office numbers. However, it competence still find itself lagging opposite a 2015 competition.
The Hollywood Reporter records that there is large seductiveness in “Fifty Shades” and puts a four-day opening weekend entrance (Monday, Feb. 16, is a holiday, Presidents Day) somewhere between $45 million and $50 million. This would place it in position to corner out 2007’s “Ghost Rider” ($52 million) for a second-best opening on Valentine’s Day weekend ever. The champ here, reasonably enough, is 2010’s “Valentine’s Day,” that brought in $62 million.
While “Fifty Shades” is approaching to be a dermatitis strike of a calendar slot, it will have challenging foe in a weeks and months to come. THR suggests that, while recognition of a film is by a roof, tangible seductiveness is harder to measure. The film’s intimately provocative theme matter competence make a ubiquitous open shy divided from saying it in theaters. In addition, like a book, it doesn’t offer most for a masculine audience. Even if a film meets a box-office expectations, it still will be behind films like a Oscar-nominated “American Sniper.”
According to Variety, a Clint Eastwood-directed troops play upheld $107 million in a Jan. 16 opening four-day period. Luckily for “Fifty Shades,” other films in 2015 so far, such as “Paddington,” “Mortdecai” and “The Boy Next Door,” are not approaching to be large grossers. However, that doesn’t indispensably give “Fifty Shades” aloft esteem.
This year will symbol some of a biggest blockbuster releases in new memory. “The Hunger Games” will come to a tighten in November. “Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens” will try to constraint a new era of scholarship novella fans in December. June’s “Jurassic World” will move behind dinosaurs after 14 years. And Joss Whedon will benefaction “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” in May. As Forbes notes, a initial “Avengers” film done a record-breaking $207 million during a opening weekend in May 2012. If a rarely approaching superhero film “Ultron” performs even half as well, it will blow “Fifty Shades of Grey” totally out of a water.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” will strike theaters Feb. 13. As of now a usually genuine foe is a Colin Firth view comedy “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” that is approaching to sum $30 million in a opening.
