Default Movie Box Office Performance No Spoilers

Well as many know by know Power Rangers earned 40 million at the box office this week. Which was on the high end of projections. A lot of websites like Box Office Mojo are saying that this was a pretty solid debut givening the budget and expectations. The forecast for its debut was 30 million. A big sign will be how it holds up in the second week. If it can maintain a lot of its audience it should have a successful box office run .

I just hope it does well enough so we get a sequel.

Damn I was hoping it would be a juggernaut like Transformers. Oh well...

It would have done better without certain scenes that those of you who follow the spoiler thread will know about.

Not really those scenes weren't major parts of the movie. And weren't heavily promoted. So I doubt they had anything to do with the audience.

I don't think this movie was ever going to do transformers like numbers. At one point I was worried it would flip. That doesn't look to be the case. The numbers so far may seem low compared to other superhero movies but they are actually pretty positive. This is uncharted waters for PR. It sounds like Lionsgate know they were only gonna get a mild hit. And are content to build the franchise up from there.

To a lot of people PR is just a kids show and they probably didn't realize that this movie was for everyone. That will slowly change as the young kids get older. They smartly kept the budget down to medium levels which makes it easier to profit. If the movie has a good second week I think it will have enough legs to inspire a sequel.

Yes, they clearly went with for a single or a double instead of a home run. Where they could have risked swinging and missing. The story was well done and audiences seem to like it. So if the audience holds up enough this could help in the possible sequel.

Transformers had longer and was more of a place in gen x kids lives. So expecting PR to do the same isn't fair right now. Its closer to Ninja Turtles anyway.

This very much reminds me of the original turtles movies during the franchises early run. Where it was a movie that had more story than non fans would have expected and did reasonably well.

Comparing it to the first Michael Bay's Box Office Performance is also a good comparison.

It sucks that the movie is probably only going to make the 14 million range. I was hoping for 20.
