‘The Flash’ will remain no. 1 vs. Jennifer Lawrence Comedy ‘No Hard Feelings’ – Deadline

Refresh for more….Sony’s mission to bring comedy back to the big screen with Jennifer Lawrence’s R-rated No Hard Feelings earned $2.15 million last night from 4pm showtimes in 2,745 locations . The film hopes to reach around $12 million this weekend in what will be the second session where Warner Bros.’ misfire, The Flash, hopes not to sink into a -70% drop. On the low end, that’s $16.5 million. A good hold would be 55% on $24M discount.

The Flash earned $2.8M yesterday, -9% from Wednesday, putting its first week gross at $72.3M. That amount of money is what the chase thought the DC picture would make in its opening weekend.

Indeed, there are no post-pandemic compromises for No Hard Feelings as we haven’t had a terrible comedy in a while. The pic bested Universal’s romcom Ticket to Paradise , which earned $1.1 million from Thursday showings starting at 5 p.m. (though that pic is skewed older, and PG-13). Ticket to Heaven opened at $16.5 million.

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 grows from six locations in LA and NYC to 1675 today. Last weekend the absurdist comedy ensemble posted the best post-pandemic theater average with $142,000. The film is expected to do single digits in the second weekend. Anderson’s previous film, The French Dispatch, released when audiences were still trying to get back to theaters in the fall of 2021, earned north of $2 million as it went into a 1,000-theater weekend 3 break.
