Wow...DaVinci with 30 million on its first day. Not bad for a movie that the critics are hating for the most part.

Di Vinci Code is cleaning up. I guess it's to be expected.

Let's see what happens tonight. Do family movies typically bring in more money on Saturday and Sunday?

So where's all the folks who said Da Vinci would bomb? Of course, it could still drop off quickly, but it's definitely going to have the best opening in a while.

Family movies tend to do a lot better on Saturday and Sundays, but nowhere near enough to make up a 3-1 deficit.

I figured Da Vinci Code would either be a huge box office success or a huge failure.I didn't see it doing anything in between that.Looks like it is going to be a huge success.

Da Vinci Code was almost guaranteed to make $$. The book has been talked about for years and now the movie is getting tons of publicity (good/bad) so many people are going to see it just to know what it is about. I know that is why I am going. I probably wouldn't see it if it didn't have such fame.

Here's one person who said it would bomb...I expected a big opening weekend but the real test will come next weekend, I predict a 65 percent drop

No not really, even if the movie dropped 80% next weekend, it wouldn't be a bomb.

Yeah, with a 30 million dollar opening day this thing won't make any less than 200 million domestic minimum. It's no bomb.

Look at any average box office weekend. The films the critics pan are typically the ones that are #1 at the box office.

Just because a critic loves it reflects nothing on what the average joe's taste is.

Talk about being vague.

This is the same logic that a member had when Mean Girls came out. The member said that Mean Girls could still bomb even though it's already obvious it's going to be a hit.

Well, there's never more than one very big movie opening on a weekend. It's very rare for a huge movie to bomb so bad that it doesn't win its weekend. This thing, connected to this mega-seller book, was never going to bomb like "Poseidon."

That doesn't mean everybody loves it. The fact is, if it's flacid, if it's lame, then the people who don't ordinarily see movies aren't going to feel that this is a movie event they can't miss. Like I've said before, there doesn't exist a human being so monumentally incompetent that they could release a film based on "The DaVinci Code" and have it flat out bomb. But if it sucks, it's gonna come in softer than they hoped, and it's not going to make the year for any studios.

This big a franchise with this much publicity is gonna lock up at least $60m for the opening weekend. Whether this thing has legs remains to be seen.

Nowadays movies can open big, but after it's run will show bomb.
And that's because movies cost so much. It used to be if a movie made $100 million it was a blockbuster now that isn't the case anymore.

DaVinci Code and Mean Girls. Talk about two films to compare. Subject matter, cast, director, audience, budget?

It doesn't matter what movies I compared. All I'm saying is that some posters still suggest that a movie could bomb even though it's already obvious the movie will be a hit based on the first weekend's take.

How about Matrix Revolution?
First Day = $24 Million
Domestic Total = $135 Million

Of course, the Matrix Revolutions also did $424 million worldwide, so it was profitable overall.

Obviously it's going to make it's money back, just pointing out that you can have a spectacular opening day and still have a less than spectacular run. Not saying that going to happen here; just saying. People seem to be eating it up, so I imagine it'll make at least $250 Million domestically.

But Matrix Reloaded was just out 5 months previously. I think people were a little Matrixed out. Plus, Revolutions kinda sucked. It didn't star Tom Hanks, has no controversy to keep people talking about it, and it was the 3rd film in a worn out franchsie.

DaVinci Code also pulled in $147 million overseas. Not a bad start.

Better than not bad. It's excellent. Probably not going to be a leggy movie though next weekend should hold up ok. Still, Hanks and company can't be complaining...at least about the money.
