The Best Man Holiday vs Thor – Biff Bam Pop’s Box Office Predictions

A quick box office prediction entry for this week, as only one film is trying to topple the thunder of Thor.

The_Best_Man_HolidayThe Best Man Holiday is the sequel to 1999’s The Best Man, a film I don’t believe I’ve ever heard of. On the plus side, it does have an outstanding cast, including Taye Diggs, Terrence Howard, Morris Chestnut and Nia Long. With The solid cast that will draw in its target demo, look for a second place showing with $18 million.

As for the rest of the top five, Thor: The Dark World is an easy lock for number one, and with the decent word of mouth it’s having, I’m predicting the film will bring in $42 million in its second weekend in theatres. Last Vegas will hit third place with $8 million, Free Birds should grab fourth with $7.5 million, while Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa will close things out in fifth with $7.2 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) Thor: The Dark World – $42 million
2) The Best Man Holiday – $18 million
3) Last Vegas – $8 million
4) Free Birds – $7.5 million
5) Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa – $7.2 million

Be sure to check back on Sunday to see how the weekend turns out!

  1. Wow!!? You’ve NEVER heard of the Best Man!!?? And you have a popculture website!!? Dude, you’re totally out of touch! There’s more to pop culture than white culture! Best Man was big in 1999, and Best Man Holiday is going to HUGE in 2013! It’s on just about 1,000 fewer screens than Thor, and yet it TOPPLED Thor opening night!! Expand your horizons. And learn a few things before you go making stupid predictions.

    1. It did have a great opening day, and will likely take down Thor, you’re right. But to say it was a huge hit in 1999 is a bit of an exaggeration. It made $34 million of its less than $10 million budget, which is awesome, but I wouldn’t consider it a crossover hit. Anyway, even I haven’t heard of it, clearly lots of people have and are eager for the sequel, so I’m happy to be wrong.
