FRIDAY AM: The box office and industry need counter-programming after multiple non-tentpoles were crushed by Super Mario Bros. Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and that will hopefully be Focus Features’ Book Club: The Next Chapter. With $500,000 in Thursday previews, the film is expected to have a $7 million to $10 million gross in 3,507 theaters. Hopefully it’s in the double digits, which will make itself felt on Mother’s Day when the universal specialty label expects business to pick up.

In turn, Brady’s 80, another Jane Fonda film earlier in the year, grossed $750,000 The film subsequently opened for $12.7 million in Thursday previews, which began at 3 p.m., but the film offered concession tickets at most major theaters to attract older female audiences. In this post-pandemic environment, this debut was a win for us older female distortion film. Hopefully Book Club 2 can do the same.

The first Book Club was a domestic acquisition by Paramount and turned out to be a sleeper with a starting $13.5 million and five exits for a domestic purchase of $68.5 million – very good for the days before Pandemic for a film like this. Paramount wasn’t interested in the sequel, so financier Fifth Season sold the film to Focus Features worldwide. a negative bounce in the $20+ million range. The fifth season was also past 80 for Brady, which cost around $20 million and grossed $40.2 million.
