'Magic Mike' and 'Genisys' Neck and Neck...for Now.

30 June 2015 7:34 PM, PDT

The numbers are in for Tuesday and Magic Mike Xxl leads Terminator Genisys, with the Channing Tatum film taking in $2.4M versus $2.3M for the Schwarzenegger reboot. Mike, with mildly positive reviews, would seem poised to take the weekend versus the poorly received latest Terminator. Paramount, however, is reporting that Genisys is actually on 3,758 screens, a much wider count than the 3,600 earlier reported, which upends the conventional thinking. Neither film is being embraced by early reviewers and audiences. Mike has a 6.2/10 from 585 users on IMDb and a 59% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Genisys has a 7.2/10 from 9,116 users on IMDb but a dismal 26% on Rt.And both debuts are going up against the successful runs of very popular films. So, with the Fourth of July multiplexes looking as crowded as the roads out of town, it might help to look at the reported screen counts to make your estimates.

4th of July Smorgasbord

29 June 2015 6:51 PM, PDT

The Fourth of July weekend looks to be filled with full multiplexes as Magic Mike Xxl and Terminator Genisys open tomorrow (Weds, 7/1), joining Jurassic World, Inside Out and Ted 2 in a battle royale for eyeballs and bottoms. Available screens are something to consider as Warner Bros.' Mike will be in a reported 3,355 venues and Paramount's Genisys in 3,758. Pundits are plugging for both films to earn $50M for the five-day frame. That puts Mike earning around the $39.1M its predecessor, the original Magic Mike, made during its June 29 - July 1, 2012 opening. It would also speculate that Genisys debuts at around the same interest level that Terminator Salvation did when it opened with $42.6M in 2009. Of course, neither Salvation, nor the third installment in the series, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, which made $44M its five-day July 4th weekend in 2003, ended up being embraced by fans as part of the canon. »
