Deadline reports that hold on a minute, it might not be Secretariat after all:
It’s very early, obviously. But Disney sources already are admitting that Secretariat is underperforming today and this weekend. For No. 1, my box office gurus say it should come down to the wire between Warner Bros’ Life As We Know It and Sony’s holdover The Social Network. None of the pics are expected to crack $20M for the 3-day weekend. Stay tuned.
Can I ask a dumb question? How do they know it’s under-performing for the weekend? Based on what? My mom friends don’t buy tickets in advance. If it’s down to The Social Network and Life and We Know It, Social Network has to take it.
