It’s going to be a beautiful weekend for one big new release at the box office, while all other films are going to have to take a back seat. Want to see our predictions? Be our guest:
Beauty and the Beast is the live-action adaptation of the classic Disney animated film. Emma Watson stars as Belle, while Dan Stevens takes on the role of the Beast. Hype has been in overdrive for this film, so even though reviews haven’t been great, families are definitely going to come out in abundance for this theatrical experience. Look for a huge debut for Beauty and the Beast, with $150 million and an obvious first place showing.
As for the rest of the top five, Kong: Skull Island will drop to second place with $25 million. Logan will be in third with $20 million, while Get Out will land in fourth place with $14 million. The Shack should close things out in fifth place with $6 million.
So, to recap, here are our predictions:
1) Beauty and the Beast – $150 million
2) Kong: Skull Island – $25 million
3) Logan – $20 million
4) Get Out – $14 million
5) The Shack -$6 million
