If Kong makes that much from Friday to Sunday, it will be considered a bomb. Patience. Give it time. You've seen the film, you know it's good.
Dino, can you chime in here with your take on all of this?
If you can show me where Leonardo DiCaprio appears on screen, point to more than a handful of women in the audience of the average Kong theater, or tell me what famous diva is singing the chart-topping theme of King Kong, I'll start to think that maybe this movie has legs like Titanic.
Since you can't, it doesn't.
Listen, no director should get 207 million dollars to blow on a bizarre obsession. Hopefully this will keep Hollywood from wasting this much cash again. Restricting money often makes a better product. A 2 hour Kong would have been a much better box office draw.
Peter Jackson is overrated.
