“lyle lyle crocodile” movie box office Collection

“Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile” is slowly getting ready to take a bite out of the weekend box office.

Sony’s live-action/CGI hybrid, co-financed by TSG, is a family-friendly movie about a singing crocodile

starring Grammy-nominated artist Shawn Mendes as the titular reptile.

The studio projects an opening haul of $11 million to $12 million

with some projections belting out upwards of $15 million. With a budget of $50 million

it will need plenty of support from kids and families over the fall to snap up a profit.

It earned $575,000 from 3,453 theaters in Thursday previews

while David O. Russell’s “Amsterdam” picked up $550,000 million from 3,005 theaters.

The cast includes Javier Bardem as Hector P. Valenti, Lyle’s flamboyant owner, Brett Gelman as Mr. Grumps

and Constance Wu, Scoot McNairy and Winslow Fegley as the Primm family.

The Primms move to a new house in New York City, where they discover Lyle,

a saltwater crocodile with the voice of a high-end recording artist, living in their attic.

There are no crocodiles to be found in “Amsterdam,” but it has nearly every other A-list actor in Hollywood.
