Refresh for more….Sony’s mission to return comedy to the big screen with the R-Rated Jennifer Lawrence movie, No Hard Feelings, grossed $2.15M last night from showtimes that began at 4PM at 2,745 locations. The movie hopes to do around $12M this weekend in what will be second session where Warner Bros.’ misfire, The Flash, hopes not to sink to a -70% tumble.
There are no comps post-pandemic really for No Hard Feelings since we haven’t had a raunchy comedy for a while. The pic did best Universal’s female leaning romcom Ticket to Paradise which made $1.1M off Thursday showtimes that began at 5PM.
Focus Features’ expansion of Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City is off to a great start with $1.1M from 1,400 theaters last night in previews. The film swells from six LA and NYC locations to 1,675 today.
