There’s definitely something fishy going on at the box office this weekend, and it’s looking to have a huge opening. How much will this new release find? Here’s our prediction:
Finding Dory is the long-awaited sequel to Pixar’s 2003 massive hit Finding Nemo, which grossed $930 million worldwide some 13 years ago. This second instalment has been generating great reviews, and awareness is huge with families. This is going to be one of the biggest movies of the summes and it should have a huge debut to along with it. Look for a first place arrival for Finding Dory with $136 million.
Also opening this weekend is Central Intelligence starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson. This is a tag team that should definitely be putting butts in seats this weekend as a comedic antidote to the sequels currently taking up space at the box office. Look for a second place debut with $38 million.
As for the rest of the top five, The Conjuring 2 will be in third place with $20 million. Now You See Me 2 will appear in fourth place with $14 million, and Warcraft should close things out in fifth place with $8 million.
So, to recap, here are our predictions:
1) Finding Dory – $136 million
2) Central Intelligence – $38 million
3) The Conjuring 2 – $20 million
4) Now You See Me 2 – $14 million
5) Warcraft – $8 million
