DID YOU KNOW?
Here's some surprising news bit: Did you know that Midway claimed the top spot at the box office in its opening weekend? Okay, you might be wondering why we find this astonishing. Well, to tell you the truth, it's because we didn't think it would actually beat Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation of Doctor Sleep. Don't get us wrong - this Midway movie had a promising trailer, and we were sure it could hit multiple strides. But to be honest, beating a movie adaptation of a Stephen King novel wasn't one of them. Yet, here we are, celebrating the victory of Midway!
Just so you know, though, Doctor Sleep wasn't the only force to be reckoned with at the box office. Yes, aside from the horror film, Midway was also released alongside Playing with Fire and Last Christmas, which are inarguably movies you should watch, too! Well, that is if you wanna keep up with all the rage now. But that's not the only good news Midway received. Did you also know that the war film's gross earnings went far beyond its expectations? Yup, it was projected to gross around $15 million from 3,242 theaters in its opening weekend. On its first day, it was already halfway to its goal as it made a whopping $6.3 million. Could you believe that? It then went on to debut to $17.5 million, which is $2 million above it's projected gross. Tell us, wasn't that quite a feat? Now, if you're curious about why people loved it more than Doctor Sleep, then it's time to watch Midway!
