Hancock $150 million Opening Weekend


Recommended Posts

By Monday, July 7, Will Smith will be the undisputed No. 1 movie star in the world. My sources tell me that tracking for Hancock (Sony) is in the stratosphere, and its five-day gross will be, conservatively, in the $140 million-$150 million range, with a bigger number highly possible. That would give the former Fresh Prince his eighth consecutive $100 million movie...

Mason is often wrong when it comes to estimates , I think the other one has a better prediction rate, they predict around 100-125 for Hancock.

150 seems a bit impossible, it would have to do 30M a day and weekdays that's hardly possible.

I'm personally estimating around 110, even that is pretty amazing IMO.

I read the same article, and what impressed me was Will Smith's track record for his past eight movies:

MOST $100 MILLION MOVIES IN A CAREER (List includes animated films and excludes cameos)

1. Tom Hanks — 15

2. Tom Cruise — 14

3. Eddie Murphy — 13

4. Will Smith — 12 (including Hancock)

4. Harrison Ford — 12

6. Jim Carrey — 11

6. Robin Williams — 11

8. Mel Gibson — 10

9. Matt Damon — 9

10. Bruce Willis — 8

10. Jack Nicholson — 8

Will Smith, however, is about to do something unprecedented, a feat never accomplished even by either of the Toms, Hanks and Cruise. Hancock will be his eighth consecutive blockbuster to gross $100 million or more.

Men in Black II (2002) — $52.14 million opening, $190.41 million cume

Bad Boys II (2003) — $46.52 million opening, $138.6 million cume

I, Robot (2004) — $52.17 million opening, $144.8 million cume

Shark Tale (2004) — $47.6 million opening, $160.86 million cume

Hitch (2005) — $43.12 million opening, $179.49 million cume

The Pursuit of Happyness (2006) — $26.54 million opening, $163.56 million cume

I Am Legend (2007) — $77.21 million opening, $256.39 million cume

Hancock (2008) — $150 million opening (Estimated)

After reading this whenever I hear someone mention a new Will Smith movie I cant help but think of someone who can make successful movies in his sleep!
