It’s a relatively calm weekend at the box office, with no competitors carrying enough muscle to knock Spider-Man: Far From Home off its web.
First up is Crawl, a creature feature set in Florida. A father and daughter try to survive the aftermath of a hurricane, only to have to contend with a pack of huge alligators. Summer is the time for this sort of horror flick, and while Crawl may not have big stars attached to it, it does have the talents of director Alexandre Aja, who did good work with his remake of The Hills Have Eyes and his adaptation of Joe Hill’s Horns. Crawl should debut in third-place with $15 million.
Also new is Stuber, a comedy team-up between Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiaani. The former plays a cop who hops into an Uber driven by the later. Hijinks presumably ensue. It’s the first big starring role by Bautista to land in theatres, but with poor reviews following it around, don’t expect it to do particularly well. Look for a fourth-place debut for Stuber with $10 million.
As for the rest of the top five, Spider-Man: Far From Home will hold on to the top spot for a second weekend with $45 million as it closes in on the $300 million mark in North America. Toy Story 4 will be in second place with $23 million, while Yesterday will close out the top five with $7 million.
So, to recap, here are our predictions:
1) Spider-Man: Far From Home – $45 million
2) Toy Story – $23 million
3) Crawl – $15 million
4) Stuber – $10 million
5) Yesterday – $7 million
