EXCLUSIVE: Disney/Lucasfilm’s Our Indianas and Dial of Destiny is posting about $6-7.5 million Thursday night, according to sources, where the action’s previous composers live.
Specifically, we are referring to early Thursday night there is no time to die which earned $6.3 million (started at 4 p.m.) ahead of its $55.2 million opening weekend in October 2021 and 2018 Mission: Impossible – Fallout which earned $6 million before debuting with a $61.2 million weekend. Dial of Destinywhich began previews at 15:00 on Thursday, is expected to gross in the middle 60-65 million dollars with 4,500 theaters, making it the second-highest opening in the state for the Steven Spielberg-George Lucas franchise after 2008 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal SKULLwhich posted a five-day opening of $151.9 million, following a three-day opening of $100.1 million. Crystal Skull there were no previews, but it opened fully on the Thursday before Memorial Day weekend with $25 million in 4,260 theaters.
Why are the weekend predictions not on par with the previous chapter? It’s twofold: part of it is about that Indy receiving the worst ratings ever with a 66% from its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, but also, its audience has gone gray and on par with the 007 franchise. You can’t say that MISSION: Impossible is still getting old as that film is expected to see the best start of the franchise Dead Reckoning of $100 million for five days starting July 12; that the sequel expects to catch a Top Gun: Maverick halo effect.
