PREVIOUSLY, Tuesday, 19:08: Like last weekend, before everyone goes back to school, studios and distributors try to get as much money as possible. Today, for example, when you open Paramount Dora and the Lost City of Gold last weekend Sony decided on Rovio Angry Birds Movie 2 fly on 3,869 screens in what it looks like USD 2.5 million Tuesday.
According to ComScore, there are still 70% of K-12 schools, but this number decreases to 56% by Friday and 38% the following Friday, August 23. the main goal is to get so many photos that could not be matched to the usual summer schedule before the new school season really pulls people out of the multiplex.

It cost USD 73 million, and earned USD 352.3 million worldwide. The continuation has already earned about USD 3 million abroad from such territories as China, Great Britain, Ukraine, South Korea and Norway.
Mostly, cash register analysts see most of the weekends encountered at the weekend and new entries (another five) publishing ticket sales in small double digits. Universal & # 39; s Hobbs and Shaw is an exception in the case of the forecasted third weekend tall teens. Spinoff led by David Leitch yesterday raised $ 111 million.
Then there are plenty of photos publishing or debuting in USD 11-12 million offer including the second CBS Films weekend Scary stories to tell in the dark (up to USD 23.3 million for four days), a new continuation of the Entertainment Studios shark 47 meters down: Uncaged starring Nia Long and daughter Sylvester Stallone, Sistine Rose Stallone, Lion KingFifth weekend (current total of $ 475.9 million) and comedy Universal / Point Gray for the night with the potty Good boys.
Young women, the ones they have already seen Scary stories, are the best demo for 47 meters down 2 I booked in 2850 cinemas with a 19:00 preview on Thursday. Good boys north of 3,000 theaters there is one picture that, if analysts had to guess, maybe pop, it would be a comedy from the film crew of Lee Eisenberg and Gene & # 39; and Stupnitsky & # 39; ego. The trick is whether Uni can get a crowd of 17-34 to see this version for young children Very angry (incidentally, a movie that is already 12 years old). Critics who usually hate R-rated comedies have enjoyed 85% so far at Rotten Tomatoes. Thursday announcements start at 19.00.
In the meantime, dora at weekend 2 is expected between USD 8-9 million. For four days it amounts to 19.3 million dollars.
Two films aimed at adults, which look very similar to special publications, are going on a large scale and will be presented approximately USD 4-5 million song: a film by Richard Linklater z Annapurna / UAR Whered You Go, Bernadette? based on the 2012 Maria comple novel and the takeover of Sundance by New Line Blinded by the light.
At a time when the industry demands diversity behind and in front of the camera, here are two versions trying to change something, and this is very unfortunate, but it is forecasted that the audience will not try to watch them.
Bernadette, 2400 Oscar winner Cate Blanchett performs in 2,400 locations. In the movie, a loving mother must dedicate herself after years to her family to reunite with her creative passions. Her leap of faith takes her on an epic adventure that begins her life and leads to a triumphant discovery. Announcements start at 19:00 on Thursday.

Older men and women are currently the main demonstration version. Pic has the best RT score for broad submissions this weekend with 93% Fresh certification. No RT results 47 meters down 2 or Bernadette.
