Consider this weekend the calm before the storm. No huge blockbusters are being released, so it will be interesting to see if any new films make a dent with audiences. Here’s our predictions.
Three new films are looking for your money. The Other Woman is a comedy staring Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann (and also featuring supermodel Kate Upton for all the dudes in the audience); Brick Mansions is the last completed film Paul Walker made before his tragic death last fall; and The Quiet Ones is a moody horror film from the folks at Hammer. None of these have any real buzz going for them so I wouldn’t expect too much from any of the three. The only one that may make some form of dent is The Other Woman, which should debut at number four with $13.5 million. Brick Mansion should hit fifth place with $10 million, while The Quiet Ones will likely debut outside the top five.
As for the rest of the top five, Captain America: The Winter Soldier should manage to hold onto the top spot again with $19 million. Rio 2 will be behind it with $15 million, while Heaven is for Real with be close in third with $14.5 million.
So, to recap, here are our predictions:
1) Captain America: The Winter Soldier – $19 million
2) Rio 2 – $15 million
3) Heaven is for Real – $14.5 million
4) The Other Woman – $13.5 million
5) Brick Mansions – $10 million
