3. Think Like a Man5.5-32.1%
4. The Hunger Games4.4-21.3%

10. The Raven1.6-39.3%

With only one new wide release and Mother's Day on Sunday, we should see great holds across the board. The recent Groupon deal for Girl in Progress should also help its per-theater-average.


  1. Avengers wontvbe that low this week it will be around $155 maybe a -27% or -30% ull c :)

  2. Not that anyone really cares, but do you mean Girl in Progress?

  3. Hah, didn't realize that I made the same mistake here. Thanks!

    1. No problem. :) I figured no one particularly cares about any movie that doesn't start with "A" and doesn't end with "vengers", hence your Freudian typo.

      Speaking of, what do you think the chances are that Think Like a Man can make it to $100 million? Or Hunger Games can reach $400 million?

    2. The Hunger Games is more likely because I see Think Like a Man's Sunday being overestimated even though it should benefit from Mother's Day.
