3RD UPDATE, Friday 11:20PM: With Warner Bros./Village Roadshow’s Sully, Tom Hanks is on his way to seeing his third best live action feature opening with an estimated $34M and his fourth A CinemaScore in a row.
“Sully,” the kind of adult-oriented, midbudget drama that isn’t supposed to succeed in theaters anymore, at least if you listen to franchise-obsessed studio executives, soared at the box office over the weekend.Directed by Clint Eastwood, 86, and starring Tom Hanks in a role that may well earn him Oscar attention, “Sully” collected an estimated $35.5 million at North American cinemas, according to comScore, which compiles box office data. That result was roughly 40 percent higher than what most analysts had predicted before the film’s release. “Sully” cost Warner Bros. and financing partners like Village Roadshow about $60 million to make before promotion costs.
And the foreign box office was $10.5 million.... But what I like even more was that the film received an A Grade from CinemaScore exit polls.
