$37M opening weekend for 1917.

They actually slipped in a limited release in 2019 so it would be in time for Golden Globes and Oscar nominations, but this was the wide release, and that's a pretty good number.

Birds of Prey opened at $33.25M, below the studio's projection of $45M.

The studio seems to be thinking of Shazam as a comp, because Shazam opened at $53.5M. The studio did take into account that Birds of Prey is an R-rated film (Shazam was PG-13) but perhaps not as much as it should have.

At any rate, the positive reviews might be enough to get Birds of Prey to $100M domestic. There aren't a lot of films in the coming weeks that would greatly cut into its audience in the coming weeks, so it might have a shot at that mark.

Of course, if people were expecting a female superhero flick to do big numbers, Black Widow and Wonder Woman are going to be much better bets.
