“All Eyez on Me” opened impressively with $3.1 million on Thursday night at 2,000 sites in North America, topping “Cars 3’s” $2.8 million. Should the estimates hold, “All Eyez” could finish in second place, just ahead of the third weekend of Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman” at $35 million.
Lionsgate has been cautioning that the “All Eyez on Me” estimates are too high and that the film is heading for the $25 million to $29 million range. The movie, starring Demetrius Shipp Jr., is over-performing, in any case, as it had been tracking in the $17 million to $22 million range at 2,471 sites for this weekend. “All Eyez” is opening on what would have been Shakur’s 46th birthday.
