’The Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Looks to Find the Top of the Box Office

A sequel that nobody has been waiting is the big new release this weekend. How will it perform? Here’s our prediction:

The Maze Runner: The Death Cure is the third and final film in the Maze Runner trilogy. The first two entries, released in 2014 and 2015 respectively, only did ‘ok’ at the box office, though both opened around the $30 million mark. However, star Dylan O’brien suffered an on-set injury while filming this third instalment, which delayed the release for nearly a year. While we’re predicting as first place showing for The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, it will likely arrive with $20 million, significantly less than either of its predecessors.

As for the rest of the top five, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will fall to second place with $15 million. 12 Strong will land in third place with $9 million. The Post will be in fourth with $7 million, while The Great Showman will close things out in fifth place with $6 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) The Maze Runner: The Death Cure – $20 million
2) Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – $15 million
3) 12 Strong – $9 million
4) The Post – $7 million
5) The Great Showman – $6 million

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