    only heard of 'Bad samaritan' which looks.. well.. bad, and i'm assuming overboard is a remake?

    i went ridiculously low with IW, so i'll stick to that totally winning formula :D

    Bad Samaritan: $500k
    Overboard: $2m
    Tully: $3m

    Wow... Overboard did a whole lot better than anyone expected - that's probably a fair few folks rocking up at cinemas and looking for something other than IW!

    I've heard of neither of the May 11th releases, so I'm stick to low-balling and go for:

    Breaking In - $3.3m
    Life of the Party - $4.6m

    i can't believe Overboard managed those numbers.
    i guess there were a couple of people who didn't go to Infinity War after all. XD
