Box Office: ‘Sniper’ Still on Top as ‘Project Almanac’ Opens with $375,000 Thursday

Paramount’s time-travel drama “Project Almanac” has opened with a moderate $375,000 at approximately 2,300 U.S. locations in Thursday night shows.

“Almanac” will expand to 2,893 locations and is projected to wrap up Super Bowl weekend in the $10 million to $12 million range.

Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper” is set to dominate Super Bowl weekend with at least $35 million in North American theaters in its third weekend in wide release. The Iraq War drama, starring Bradley Cooper as Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, is headed into the weekend with $217.1 million in total domestic grosses following its $3.7 million Thursday. “American Sniper” has a good chance of passing the $250 million mark by the end of the weekend. Warner Bros. is adding 180 locations this weekend, bringing its total to 3,885 — the highest screen count ever for an R-rated title.

Relativity’s drama “Black or White,” starring Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer, opened with $115,000 in Thursday-night showings and is expected to finish the weekend in the $7 million to $9 million range at 1,823 locations.

Costner, who financed the film with Rod Lake, also produces and stars in the movie, centered on a custody battle over his character’s grandchild.

Open Road’s thriller “The Loft” is looking at a mild launch around $5 million at 1,841 sites.

Project Almanac,” which carries a $12 million budget, will also open day-and-date in Russia, Spain and New Zealand. The film stars Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-D’Elia, Sam Lerner, Allen Evangelista and Virginia Gardner.
