It’s the end of September but Pierce Brosnan is hoping November proves a magic month for his latest film. How will the former James Bond perform? Here’s our prediction:
The November Man is a new spy flick staring Brosnan, based on the series of books with the same name. The film is a “one last mission” sort of deal, a concept that is ideally suited for the actor who, in my opinion, was unceremoniously dumped from the James Bond franchise after helping reinvigorate it. Will audiences check him out in a familiar genre – possibly, but we’ve to remember that it’s the last weekend of the summer box office season, typically a dumping time for films. This is one film that will likely find its audience overseas and on Netflix, though a sequel is already in the works. Look for a second place showing with $13 million.
As for the rest of the top five, look for Guardians of the Galaxy to hold onto the top spot with $17 million. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be right behind in second place with $15 million. Let’s Be Cops will hit fourth place with $9 million, while If I Stay will claim fifth place with $6 million.
So, to recap, here are our predictions:
1) Guardians of the Galaxy – $17 million
2) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – $15 million
3) The November Man – $13 million
4) Let’s Be Cops – $9 million
5) If I Stay – $6 million
