‘Captain Marvel’ To Hold Off Challenges From ‘Wonder Park’, ‘Five Feet Apart’ This Weekend

There are a few new releases arriving this weekend, but none of them will have the power to stand up to the mighty Captain Marvel.

Up first is Wonder Park, an animated film that should be the perfect choice for kids who have already Captain Marvel, or weren’t that excited by The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. Awareness is high, and the film should debut well enough for a non-franchise flick. Look for Wonder Park to arrive in second place with $16 million.

Also new is Five Feet Apart, an adaptation of the young adult novel about two teens with cystic fibrosis who must keep a distance from other people. The not-so-secret weapon for this film is Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead on the CW’s Riverdale, and who could help raise the audience level just that much higher this weekend, Look for a third place debut with $11 million.

As for the rest of the top five, Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel has performed strong throughout the week, and it should continue to do well into its second weekend. That new Avengers: Endgame trailer certainly won’t hurt either. Look for the film to bring in $75 million to hold on to the top spot. Meanwhile, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World will be in fourth place with $8 million, while new arrival Captive Slate from director Rupert Wyatt will debut in fifth place with $7 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel – $75 million
2) Wonder Park – $16 million
3) Five Feet Apart – $11 million
4) How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World – $8 million
5) Captive State – $7 million

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