‘Night School’, ‘Smallfoot’ Looking to Debut Strong at the Box Office

This weekend sees the release of Night School. which combines the talents of both Kevin Hart and Tiffany Hadish. That duo is a virtual guarantee for a strong opening weekend, even if reviews are being less than kind. I should say, reviews are being really, really unkind.

In fact, they’re horrible. Night School currently sits at 24% on Rotten Tomatoes. However, that won’t sop the film from nailing a solid debut. Look for a first place showing with $29 million.

As for the rest of the top five, the new family film Smallfoot is entering the fray with better notices than Night School (it’s 75% fresh as of this writing), and it’s been a little while since we’ve had an animated movie available for audiences. Look for a second place debut with $25 million.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls will drop to third place with $15 million, followed by A Simple Favor in fourth with $7.5 million. The Nun should close things out in fifth place with $6.5 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) Night School – $29 million
2) Smallfoot – $25 million
3) The House With A Clock In Its Walls – $15 million
4) A Simple Favor – $7.5 million
5) The Nun – $6.5 million
