Will ‘12 Strong’ demonstrate any muscle at the box office this weekend?

This weekend’s big new release is hoping that  fans will come out to support A lynchpin of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Will it happen? Here’s our prediction:

12 strong

12 Strong is the truelife story of the first soldiers to go over to Afghanistan following the events of September 11th, 2001. It features a strong cast led by Chris Hemsworth who, while charming and versatile, hasn’t had much success as a leading man outside of his role as Thor in the various Marvel movies. However, Thor: Ragnarok was the most succesful of three God of Thunder films so far, so there could be some serious audience goodwill coming Hemsworth’s way. Look for 12 Strong to debut in second place with $15 million.

As for the rest of the top five, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle will remain in first place with $18 million. The Post will find itself in third place with $13 million. The Great Showman will continue its slow and steady run, landing in fourth place with $8 million, while The Commuter will close things out in fifth place with $7.5 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle – $18 million
2) 12 Strong – $15 million
3) The Post – $13 million
4) The Great Showman – $8 million
5) The Commuter – $7.5 million

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

  1. User ratings on ‘Den of Thieves’ is surprisingly high…might be able to crack the Top 5 after all is said and done😀
