Two new releases are looking to light up the box office this weekend, but can either of them take down last week’s number one? Here are our predictions:
The first notable release this weekend is the big budget Guy Ritchie film, King Arthur, about the Knights of the Round Table. Reviews have been absolutely horrid for the film, which is currently sitting at just 24% fresh at Rotten Tomatos. That’s far from good for what was theoretically supposed to be a new franchise. Neither Charlie Hunnan nor Jude Law can open a film, and those are the biggest stars in King Arthur. Folks looking for a spectacle (or a train wreck) might show up, but there’s just not going to be enough of them. Look for a second place debut with $18 million.
That is, unless Snatched manages to grab that spot.
