This weekend’s winner is going to be a no-brainer, regardless of how poor the reviews are (16% rotten at Rotten Tomatoes as of this writing). So the question is, just how much money will the flaming pile of Michael Bay garbage bring in? Here’s our prediction:
Fessing up here, I skipped the last Transformers film after the incredibly awful second movie that I spent money on. Gosh, that was an absolutely horrible experience. But hey, summer audiences love to watch giant robots smash stuff up, which I’m assuming we’re getting with Transformers: Age of Extinction. I don’t know, I’m not seeing it, but maybe you will, alongside the masses who will make this yet another hit. Look for a first place showing with $120 million.
As for the rest of the top five, look for 22 Jump Street to continue its solid run, hitting number two with $14 million. Think Like A Man Too will be in third place with $12 million. Maleficent will grab fourth place with $10.5 million, while How To Train Your Dragon 2 will be close behind in fifth with $10 million.
So, to recap, here are our predictions:
1) Transformers: Age of Extinction – $120 million
2) 22 Jump Street – $14 million
3) Think Like A Man Too – $12 million
4) Maleficent – $10.5 million
5) How To Train Your Dragon 2 – $10 million
