Brad Pitt-starred $90mln “Bullet Train” heads towards a projected $30 million opening

Brad Pitt-starring “Bullet Train” has been well en-route to hit a $30 million followed by a decent opening. In point of fact, following an encouraging $4.5 million that the film had racked up on Thursday’s preview, Sony Entertainment was quoted as saying that the movie’s executives believe that the film could hit a whopping $30 million by Sunday night.

“Bullet Train” expected to hit $30 million over weekend

If truth is to be spoken, contemplating the amount “Bullet Train” had shelved on Friday, the Brad Pitt-starring film should racket up a $30 million opening.

Followed by the release of the movie, several analysts said that the movie has been putting up a solid performance across the board given that “Bullet Train” has been gutting a modest upsum despite lacking even a single franchise tie.

Nonetheless, the film has had a budget of $90 million, as the film must continue to perform better with a robust hold for at least two months to reach its production cost excluding promotions. Audiences have been more receptive to “Bullet Train” than other films released over recent weeks, as CinemaScore had rated the movie at B+.

Aside from the “Bullet Train,” Warner Bros’s “DC League Super-Pets” has been set to take the second spot with an earning of $3.35 million on Friday, marking off a sharp drop of 64 per cent in holds compared to last week.

On top of that, the “Despicable Me” spin-off “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” has performed better than other recent releases with only a marginal 38 per cent drop in holds coming into the sixth weekend.
