Will “The Accountant” Add Up This Weekend?
Will The Girl on the Train hold on to the top spot at the box office again this week, or will a numbers man step into number one? Here’s our prediction:
The Accountant is a new hit man film starring Ben Affleck, who was considered to be the best part of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This matters because, even though the film took a drubbing from critics, Affleck got strong notices and really doesn’t have to worry about any blow back effecting his latest offering. Plus, the guy is a star and has the ability to open a film. Look for a first place debut with $20 million.
Also new this week is Kevin Hart: What Now?, a new stand-up film from the comedian who does consistently well with his cinematic roles. While this concert release won’t do big business, it should still find itself an audience. Look for a third place debut with $11 million.
As for the rest of the top five, The Girl on the Train will drop to second place with $13 million. Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children will be in fourth place with $8.5 million, while Deepwater Horizon will close things out in fifth with $6 million.
So, to recap, here are our predictions:
1) The Accountant – $20 million
2) The Girl on the Train – $13 million
3) Kevin Hart: What Now? – $11 million
4) Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children – $8.5 million
5) Deepwater Horizon – $6 million
Be sure to check back on Sunday to see how the weekend turns out!
