' American Assassin

This compares favorably to John Wick, which kicked off its run to a $14.4 million opening with $870k from Thursday screenings. Paramount's mother! delivered $700k from Thursday previews beginning at 7Pm in ~2,000 locations, which is behind the $855k for Crimson Peak
, which we used as one of our comps in our weekend preview below. It is, however, an improvement on the $520k Nightcrawler brought in before it opened with $10.4 million back in October 2014. We'll take a closer look at things tomorrow morning once Friday estimates come in.
