For fun, I conducted a small “Fahrenheit 9/11” opening weekend grosses poll, asking a few indieWIRE people (and friends of iW) to send me a prediction for the 3-day weekend grosses for “Fahrenheit 9/11” (Friday – Sunday).
The film will be on 868 screens this weekend. Here are the results:
$23.4 million – Wendy Mitchell (iW Mg. Ed.)
$21 million – John Vanco (Film distributor/consultant)
$19,530,000 – J.D. Ashcraft (iW Mktg/Ad Dir.)
$18.22 million – John Pierson (Indie guru, author, honorary Fijian)
$18 million – James Israel (iW Ad/Mktg Srvc)
$17.2 milllion – Eugene (me)
$15,624,000 – Brian Brooks (iW Assoc. Ed./Box office columnist)
$15,000,001 – Eamonn Bowles (Film distributor/Magnolia Pictures)
$13,020,001 – Brian Clark (iW Prod./Mgr.)
Feel free to add a prediction to the comment section.
