‘Immortals’ : $33-35 Million Opening Weekend!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Relativity Media’s R-rated action-epic Immortals is on course to top the Friday box office with $13.5 million to $14 million, putting it course to gross north of $33 millon for the weekend if business stays strong.
Tracking had suggested a $25 million to $26 million opening weekend for Immortals, but the film is overperforming on the strength of fanboys.
Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity, which fully financed and produced Immortals, is counting on fanboys to buoy the violence-laced R-rated film, a fantasy adventure along the same lines as box office hit 300. Immortals, a key test for Relativity, cost $75 million to produce after tax rebates.
Immortals scored high marks in test screenings, and also stars Mickey Rourke, Stephen Dorff, Isabel Lucas, Kellan Lutz, Freida Pinto and Luke Evans. The pic opens day and date in a number of key territories, including China (through Relativity’s co-venture with Skyland), Germany, Italy, the U.K., South Korea, Japan and South Korea.
Relativity insiders say Immortals only has to open to $25 million for the company to be on sound financial footing, since so much of the budget was financed through foreign presales.
This is truly great news for everyone involved with the project! If you still haven’t seen it; be sure to go watch it tonight – it’s definitely worth it!
‘Immortals’ Earns $1.4 Million
Great news, everyone! According to The Wrap, Immortals screened in 900 locations at the midnight shows for a total of $1.4 million! It expands to 3,100 theaters over the weekend.
By way of comparison, last summer’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes brought in $1.3 million in 1,024 theaters on its way to a $54.8 million debut.
Relativity projects that its $75 million after tax rebates swords-and-sandals action film will crack a middling $25 million on its opening weekend, but the studio seems enthused by the late screening figures. It will face off against Oscar contender J. Edgar and Adam Sandler’s critically panned Jack & Jill.
If you haven’t seen Immortals yet, be sure to see it this weekend! I saw it tonight, and it was awesome. Most of all it looked like nothing else out there; and it has Freida Pinto in 3D!

For those of you who still don’t know what Immortals is, I’ve included the synopsis and a trailer below!
Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares.
Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion…until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope.
Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders–including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and cunning slave Stavros (Stephen Dorff) — one hero will lead the uprising, or watch his homeland fall into ruin and his Gods vanish into legend.
