‘Baywatch’ Opens With $4.5M, ‘Pirates 5’ Earns $5.5M In Previews

While there may be a number off fans who approved of Batwatch, a feature film adaptation of the hit 90s television series, it appears that enthusiasm has not translated into box office ssuccess. Deadline reports that Baywatch grossed an estimated total of $4.5 million on it’s opening day, an estimate that includes figures from Wednesday nights preview screenings where the film earned $1.25 million.

Playing in 3,647 theaters and with a budget in the high end of $60 million, the opening day gross for Baywatch is not a good sign for the film, which is now projected to earn a total weekend gross of roughly $28 million.

On the other hand, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is off to a strong start, having earned $5.5 million in Thursday night previews. With a budget of roughly $230 million, the film is expected to earn an estimated total of roughly $80-85 million over memorial day weekend.

How do you think both films will fare at the box office this weekend? Share your thoughts below!

Directed by Espen Sandberg & Joachim Rønning, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales stars Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush and Keira Knightley.

Directed by Seth Gordon, Baywatch stars Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, Jon Bass, Priyanka Chopra, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Pamela Anderson, and David Hasselhoff.

Top 10 Movie Trailers From This Summer That Will Fire You Up

Every year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. It’s gotten to the point where now, trailers are such a commodity, that the trailers themselves have teasers. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own.

I love trailers, being the guy who is always rushing his friends and family to the theater early “so we don’t miss the previews.” Every summer, I make a YouTube playlist of my favorites that acts as my own personal radio station because frankly, sometimes, I vibe more to how the trailer is cut than the music in it or, in bad cases, the movies themselves when I finally catch them on-screen. It’s gotten to the point that I imagine and dream in a trailer format, with music setting the pace for a smash-cut of scenes that I want to write or just enjoy the fantasy of.

If you love a good trailer like I love a good trailer, this list is for you. Here’s what I consider the top 10 trailers for the summer 2017. Click Next to start!
