You missions, if you choose to accept it, is help determine what film will rule the box office this weekend. Here’s our prediction as to which film will come out on top:
Love him or hate him, and I think more people do the former, Tom Cruise always does well at the box office when he steps into the role of Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible series. The trailers for the fifth installment, Rogue Nation, have been stellar and stunning, and I think audiences are genuinely excited to see this film. Cruise has been all over the media promoting the film, and I believe that should pay off with a strong debut at the box office. Look for a first place showing with $60 million.
As for the rest of the top five, Vacation, the spin-off of the beloved National Lampoon’s Vacation series which opened this past Wednesday, should manage the second spot with $16 million, even though it has been receiving some horrible, horrible reviews. Marvel’s Ant-Man will fall to number three with $15 million, Minions will grab fourth place with $12 million, while Pixels will close things out in fifth place with $11 million.
So, to recap, here are our predictions:
1) Misson: Impossible Rogue Nation – $60 million
2) Vacation – $16 million
3) Ant-Man – $15 million
4) Minions – $12 million
5) Pixels – $11 million
