The Official Box Office Thread
Well, like a true Grindhouse film it looks like Tarantino & Rodriguez's little experiment is going to have to settle for just as much attention from mainstream audiences. Kind of sad, but certainly not unexpected, seeing the film in a wild and packed Drafthouse on can certainly distort one's view on a macro level.

Obviously not.
And where are your guesstimates?
Haven't been this disappointed in a first-week take since Vice, last summer.
I was on such a high Friday night, seeing that sold out theater, thinking "this one is going to do thrity million easy." So the late night Friday showings were apparently the pinnacle.

Ooh, I want to answer this. Moreso because I got something right than to bust your balls, Andre. It's easy to see why you went high on Grindhouse. Here's a March 25 post I made at, a box office site:

Dellamorte makes you look stupid again.
The Hoax also opens wider this weekend, though it probably wont come close to the top ten because people don't like good movies.
Unless it's a big expansion run, ala a Pan's Labyrinth roll out, or the Borat strategy, I probably won't mention it, like Black Book's addition of a couple more screens.
I really wish Grindhouse had done better. I want to see some sequels. This is so disappointing.
