Box Office 3/31-4/2: Ice Age $21 million opening day

Here's a report of Friday's numbers from www.showbizdata.com --

Estimates for
Friday, March, 31, 2006
Title Daily Total
ICE AGE 2: THE MELTDOWN 21.7 21.7
INSIDE MAN 5.0 42.0
ATL 4.6 4.6
FAILURE TO LAUNCH 2.2 68.9
V FOR VENDETTA 2.0 52.3
STAY ALIVE 1.7 14.4
SHE'S THE MAN 1.6 23.8
SLITHER 1.4 1.4
BASIC INSTINCT 2: RISK ADDICTION 1.1 1.1
LARRY THE CABLE GUY: HEALTH INSPECTOR 1.1 9.4

at Ice Age, could be a $60 million+ opening weekend easy.

As for "Basic Instinct 2," it's a neck and neck with 'Larry The Cable Guy"!

Sorry "Slither" isn't doing better, that looks fun...

I would have seen Slither yesterday, but it couldn't be playing further from my house. I guess I am going to have to wait. I was very excited about it though, but damn.

Damn, I never expected much from Basic Instinct 2, but that's really low.

Second that. Always a plus when CGI creepy crawleys make Sharon Stone and "Git-R-Done" guy submit.

How the fuck did ATL make $4.4 million? Didn't people see it already when (the more entertaining -- and better quality film) Roll Bounce was released to movie theaters last September?

Too bad for Slither. It's really an enjoyable b-movie. However, I'm amused that Basic Instinct 2 is DOA.

Great timing for Ice Age. A couple times in the past few weeks my sons and I said "let's go to a movie" but nothing was playing. Parents have been waiting for a film ta take their kids to (that they'd also enjoy) for a while now.

We're seeing it today. Add $18 to those millions. (3 $6 matinee tix)

Good timing. I read in Newsweek that Larry the Cable Guy is the top stand up in the US as far as box office tickets(or receipts, can't remember which). I was amazed at that.

Glad to see Inside Man is still doing well. That should pave the way nicely for Lee's Joe Louis film.

saying atl is like roll bounce is silly. they're not the same story, they just involve a rink. that's like saying aliens is a better version of event horizon because it was in space. also, TI and Big Boi obviously have box office draw to the urban society. i actualy expected at least 10 million opening weekend from ATL. looks like it might be just a bit more.

it had heavy advertising in urban areas and on movies of teh same type. mtv and bet obviously advertised it. i guess it depends on your demographic. i saw lots of ads for it.

Aha. That's why I haven't seen any ads for it. It's because I have taste. Haha, how funny.

I think the ads for ATL have been aimed for souther urban areas because it has been playing non-stop in urban sourthern areas (Birmingham, Atlanta, Knoxville) on all channels. I actually got sick of seeing it.

i can't believe the piddling bo for "Sliter" especially considering the mostly positive reviews. i guess most don't go for the horror ones that have that comic edge. too bad for them and us if a sequel is not to be made because of.

I think the real kiss of death for slither was that "Somebody heeeeeeeelp me!" fatty. You can sell horror, much like the hills have eyes. But you have a harder time selling the extreme gore.
