Projections: Charts Ready to Go 'Haywire'

7 May, 2012 By: John Latchem



A slow trickle of major new releases to start the second quarter makes for some unpredictable positioning on the charts, as dependable hits and strong catalog titles continue to stick around.

The May 5 new releases trying to make a splash include Lionsgate’s Haywire ($18.9 million at the domestic box office), an actioner featuring MMA star Gina Carano; Warner’s Joyful Noise ($30.93 million); and New Year’s Eve ($54.5 million), also from Warner.

Of the three, New Year’s Eve seems to have the advantage in retail placement.
