Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Warner Bros. and New Line’s Don’t Worry Darling ( review ) topped the domestic box office on Friday with $9.4 million. That’s essentially tied with the $9.26 million opening day gross of Emily Blunt’s The Girl on the Train back in October of 2016. That potboiler earned $24.54 million in its opening weekend on the way to a $75.4 million domestic cume. If Don’t Worry Darling , starring Florence Pugh, Harry Styles, Chris Pine and Olivia Wilde (who, of course, directed the picture) plays likewise (or like A Simple Favor which nabbed $16 million from a $5.9 million Friday in September of 2018), we’re looking at a $24.9 million debut frame. However, presuming modern frontloading, a B- from Cinemascore and the possibility of that first 24 hours being inflated by Harry Styles fans, it might end up closer to $20 million than $25 million. Either would be fine, since we’re talking about an R-rated, adult-skewing, … [Read more...] about Friday Box Office: ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ Nabs Stylish $9.4 Million As ‘Avatar’ Earns $3.3 Million
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The Chicago Bulls had been one of the last NBA teams without a jersey patch sponsor, but that changed Tuesday when they announced a five-year partnership with Zenni Optical just days before the start of the 2018-19 regular season. While some fans may have been hoping for a sponsor with more of a Chicago flavor , the good news is this patch blends into the jersey well and isn't distracting: We’re excited to welcome @zennioptical to the #Bulls family as our first-ever jersey patch partner! pic.twitter.com/wWTJodfyDA — Chicago Bulls (@chicagobulls) October 16, 2018 In addition to the jersey patch, Zenni is now the Official Eyewear Partner of the Bulls, and the two organizations will partner on "various marketing elements, community initiatives, digital assets, and in-arena signage and activations." It's unclear how much money the Bulls will be getting in this deal, but The Athletic's Jon Greenberg reports … [Read more...] about Bulls Announce Partnership With Zenni Optical As They Gear Up For 2018-19 NBA Season
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Warner Bros. and New Line’s Don’t Worry Darling ( review ) opened atop the domestic box office this weekend with $19.2 million. That’s a decent figure for a $35 million R-rated, adult-skewing, star-driven original. It’s right between A Simple Favor ($16 million in 2018) and The Girl on the Train ($24 million in 2016). However, it also earned a lousy 2.04x weekend multiplier. Along with the mixed-negative reviews and a B- from Cinemascore, this does not paint the rosiest of pictures for the film’s post-debut legs. However, for now, the Olivia Wilde-directed and Florence Pugh-starring erotic fantasy thriller opened with exactly the over/under $20 million it would have with or without the months of tabloid gossip. Opening weekend is about marketing and pre-release interest, everything that happens next is about whether audiences liked the movie. I’m old enough to remember when major studio, big-budget ‘women getting … [Read more...] about Box Office: ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ And ‘Avatar’ Both Earn $30 Million Global
