Seems like there’s been a whole lot of sports dramas recently as this Friday’s My All-American is, well, another one. The independent college football 1970s period piece, based on a true story, focuses on University of Texas player Freddie Steinmark. It stars Finn Witrock, Sarah Bolger, Robin Tunney, and Aaron Eckhart.
Opening on a relatively low 1500 approximate screens, it’s hard to imagine this making a run at any sort of solid business. It is worth noting that its director, Angelo Pizzo, is the man responsible for the screenplays of two genre classics, Hoosiers and Rudy. Still, if this gets past $5 million I’d be fairly surprised and it’s more probable that the football drama people are really waiting for is this December’s Concussion with Will Smith.
My All-American opening weekend prediction: $3.8 million
