"Super Troopers 2" has crowned Amy Schumer's comedy "I Feel Pretty" with $ 1.4 million at 1,850 North American film locations on Thursday night.
STXfilm's "I Feel Pretty" captured $ 1 million from 2,600 pages during Thursday previews
"Super Troopers 2" unites the five stars of the original 2001 film – Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske , collectively known as Broken Lizard. The quintet plays mundane Vermont state troopers with a penchant for pranks and feuds with other local law enforcement agencies. The sequel, crowdfunding-funded by fans of the original $ 4.4 million in 201
The preview results of the "Super Troopers 2" suggest that they will surpass forecasts almost the $ 1.5 million R-rated "Blockers" that began with $ 20.6 million on the April 6 launch weekend to open. The film carries a value of 32% at Rotten Tomatoes.
"I Feel Pretty" expands on Friday to 3,440 pages with expectations for an opening weekend in the $ 15 million range. That's significantly lower than 2015's "Trainwreck," which debuted $ 30 million, making Schumer a star, and "Snatched," which snapped to $ 19.5 million in $ 650,000 in previews in 2017.
"I Feel Pretty" shows Schumer as an insecure woman who suddenly thinks she is beautiful after a head injury. Michelle Williams, Rory Scovel, Emily Ratajkowski, Busy Phillips and Aidy Bryant complete the cast. Like the sequel to "Super Troopers," critics were unimpressed (the film has a rating of 37% for Rotten Tomatoes).
"I Feel Pretty" gets behind the third frame of John Krasinki's "A Quiet Place" and the second weekend of Dwayne Johnson's "Rampage." Paramount's "A Quiet Place" is said to earn between $ 20 and $ 25 million, an impressive reminder of the horror film. The thriller with Krasinski and Emily Blunt has earned $ 108 million at home box office in less than two weeks.
Warner Bros. "Rampage" will likely slip into second place and $ 18 million to $ 20 million to retire sophomore frame. The Johnson-run science fiction fantasy, which opened at $ 35 million, owes the international box office the world-wide prize money of more than $ 196 million.
Lionsgate's "Traffik" from Codeblack Films expects an opening weekend of $ 3 million to $ 4 million from 1,046 locations after a $ 225,000 preview. Thriller stars Paula Patton and Omar Epps, written and directed by Deon Taylor, follow a group of friends being terrorized by a gang of bikers in a remote rural area.
According to comScore, the value was $ 3.36 billion on April 18.
