Tomb Raider Thursday Night Box Office Is Bigger Than Expected

Warner Bros. rolled out its video game reboot Tomb Raider last night for Thursday sneak previews, and the Box Office results were not groundbreaking, but still a lot better than expected. Tomb Raider took in an estimated $2.1 million in sneak peek screenings that took place in over 3,100 theaters last night, before it opens in 3,854 theaters starting today. Most analysts are predicting an opening weekend in the mid $20 million range, although most also have Black Panther just beating it with a fifth-weekend gross in the high $20 million range.

Unfortunately for Tomb Raider, it isn't getting much help from critics, with its opening day score on Rotten Tomatoes nearly split right down the middle with 49% (71 positive reviews, 73 negative reviews). The movie's 3,854 theater count puts it in the same ballpark as four-time box office champ Black Panther (3,942) and last week's runner-up A Wrinkle In Time (3,980), although its middling critical reception may hinder its box office performance.
