    Well… Epic Movie made it to $39.7 million, and Date Movie made it to $48.5 million before that. All three films were made by the same people, and they all had opening weekends between $18.5 million and $19.1 million, so we can probably expect the new film to end up in the $40 million range, too, give or take.
