Boo 2! to scare off box office competition

As get closer to October 31st, this weekend sees the release of lighter horror fare, that of a comedic nature, that should have no problem hitting the top of the box office. Here’s our prediction:

Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween picks up where last year’s instalment left on, in that its opening on the same weekend and just in time for Halloween. Tyler Perry’s Madea character is a guaranteed draw, and absolutely critic proof. Boo! A Madea Halloween debut at number one last year, on its ways to making $75 domestically. Look for the sequel to debut on top as well, with $28 million.

As for the rest of the top five, Happy Death Day will drop to second place with $15 million. The new environmental thriller Geostrom will debut in third place with $10 million, followed in fourth by another new debut, Only The Brave, which details the story of wildfire fighters.  Though that one has a solid cast led by Josh Brolin, the hype is not there, and combined with the current wildfire outbreaks of late, it’s doubtful anyone will be heading to theatres to see more. It will likely bring in about $8 million.

Blade Runner 2049 will close things out in fifth place with $7 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) Tyler Perry’s Boo! 2: A Madea Halloween – $28 million
2) Happy Death Day – $15 million
3) Geostorm – $10 million
4) Only The Brave – $8 million
5) Blade Runner 2049 – $7 million

Be sure to check back on Sunday to see our predictions!

  1. I remember watching the first Medea movie, enjoyed it, and was never interested in going there again … but she keeps on coming back to haunt us, so somebody must be watching. 😀
