Of course, if BvsS has good word of mouth and people think some of the issues they had with MOS have been corrected, that might help it grow some legs and have a strong second week.
I see, I didn't know you were guessing that for a head to head weekend(something that won't happen imo).

Secondly, do you have any idea how many people were 'turned off' by Transformers? People that care enough to be vocal about how 'turned off' they are the type of people that care enough to show up regardless. This is very much the paradigm of TF imo. Then there is the issue of if they are right, I personally think the GA has spoken and is continuing to speak on the matter. How good the movie is in and of itself(without people deeming uplifting is some prerequisite of film) is rarely discussed imo.

This very clearly isn't the Superman Returns situation.
