“Magnificent Seven” Scores $1.75M In Previews

Sony and MGM’s remake of the 1960 classic western “The Magnificent Seven” had its Thursday night previews last night ahead of its general release today with the movie pulling in $1.75 million in those sneak peeks.

This would put it on track to earn in the $30-$40 million range this weekend, an excellent start for a western. Reviews for the film have been decidedly mixed, most saying its clearly well made with good actors wasted in a very routine and by-the-numbers film.

The other opener this week is the animated film “Storks” which also scored mixed reviews and is expected to open with between $20-30 million.
