Searchlight

LAST FRIDAY AM EXCLUSIVE: Searchlight’s absurdist genre horror comedy The menu got off to a promising start with $1 million+ in Thursday night previews, we hear. That number is up there with recent compositions such as Barbarian, who made $850,000 on Thursday night for a $10.5 million opening, and The Normananother Anya Taylor-Joy movie, which grossed $1.35 million for a $12.2 million start.

Director Mark Mylod’s opening weekend estimate The menu, which also stars Ralph Fiennes, Nicholas Hoult, John Leguizamo and others, cost about $8 million. If this movie gets $10 million, it would be a nice oasis for counter-programming in light of Disney and Marvel Studios’ mammoth sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,which is expected to do a second weekend in the $70 million range. That sample number for The menu includes some cash from Wednesday and previews that started at 5 p.m. Thursday. The picture is certified 91% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and currently has a good ratings of 83%.

Wakanda forever posted $7.5 million on Thursday, -8% from Wednesday, for a first week of $220.7 million. The photo crossed $400 million worldwide on Wednesday.

She said, Universal’s movie about the New York Times reporters who exposed movie mogul Harvey Weinstein are not expected to do much this weekend, in the low single digits. Previews from 1,600 theaters starting at 5 p.m. were just $160,000. Remember, despite the low returns of these arthouse-esque films in the post-pandemic era, their awards season chances won’t slow down. I mean, some of the big prize contenders don’t even report their box office earnings. She said is an 85% certified fresh critics score on Rotten Tomatoes and has a 92% audience rating from the few who have seen it.
