Sony’s ‘Bullet Train’ makes tracks for end of summer movie season (NYSE:SONY)

The blockbuster film season flies its final flag of 2022 this weekend, with a big, star-driven film opening left before the back-to-school season ushers in a quieter string of releases.

This movie is from Sony (NYSE: SONY) fast train, with Brad Pitt joins a gaming ensemble in an action-adventure that sees a handful of assassins on a bullet train in pursuit of a target.

The film grossed $4.6 million in Thursday’s previews, and with a premiere in more than 4,300 domestic theaters, it’s likely to lead the way with a debut in the $30 million range this weekend — and then one long, healthy run hope reported production cost of $90 million (not to mention marketing).

It contrasts with light family comedy Easter Sunday (NASDAQ:CMCSA) starring comedian Jo Koy and A24 slasher comedy body body body.

But none of these movies are likely to top last week’s front runner, DC League of Super Pets (WBD) — which, if it loses 50% of business in its opening weekend, should still end up at $11-12 million. And Jordan Peeles nope (CMCSA) is still out there after raising $18.6 million last weekend Thor: Love and Thunder (DIS), which grossed $13.2 million in its fourth weekend.

Either way, with the release schedule settling down, this will likely be the biggest weekend at the cinemas in at least several weeks. The industry exhibitors are enjoying a relatively happy cinema summer: AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC); Cineworld (OTCPK:CNNWF); Cinemamark (NYSE: CNK); (IMAX); Markus (MCS); Reading International (RDI); Cineplex (OTCPK:CPXGF); National Cinema Media (NCMI).
