Don’t Breathe looking to top the box office

Dog days of summer, week two. However, there could be a bit of surprise at the box office this weekend, as a new horror film from a couple of masters could shake things up a bit. Here’s our prediction:


Don’t Breathe is a new collaboration between producer Sam Raimi and director Fede Alvarez, the duo behind the scary as hell remake of Evil Dead back in 2013. Using those two names as a lure should definitely help this horror film find some strong success over its opening weekend, and with a minuscule budget of $10 million, it doesn’t have to over perform to be a success. Look for a first place debut with $22 million for Don’t Breathe.

As for the rest of the top five, look for Suicide Squad to hit second place with $11 million. Kubo and the Two-Strings should find itself in third place with $9 million, with War Dogs right behind it in fourth with $8.5 million. Sausage Party will close things out in fifth place with $7 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) Don’t Breathe – $22 million
2) Suicide Squad – $11 million
3) Kubo and the Two-String – $9 million
4) War Dogs – $8.5 million
5) Sausage Party – $7 million

Be sure to check back on Sunday to see how the weekend turns out!
