Audiences likely to ignore Unforgettable this weekend

It’s a short box office prediction entry this week, as none of the new releases coming out are going to make any sort of dent against the reigning number one champ. Here’s our predictions:

Unforgettable is a new thriller starring Katherine Heigl, which should pretty much tell you everything you need to know about its chances for success. Audiences have completely turned their back on this actor, and its doubtful she’ll be able to draw to many people into theaters. Look for a fourth place debut with $7 million.

‘Fate of the Furious’ Rides To First Place At The Box Office

It’s been a successful, but not HUGELY successful weekend for this week’s big new release. Here’s what went down:

fate of the furious

Though we were optimistic and thought The Fate of the Furious would only drop slightly from the massive opening Furious 7 delivered a few years back, the latest instalment was definitely off from F7‘s $147 million. While The Fate of the Furious debuted in number one, as expected, it was with an estimated $100.1 million. To be fair, this is still a great number, and the film is tracking to also perform incredibly well overseas. It just appears that this time out, the family couldn’t quite capture the zeitgeist in North America the way it had a few years back.

Trailer Time: ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

The Last Jedi

And here it is: the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and boy, does it feel ominous.

‘Fate of the Furious’ Looking to Drive Over the Competition This Weekend

This weekend, it’s a Furious world, and we’re just living in it. What will be the fate for the eighth instalment in a venerable franchise? Here’s our prediction:

furious

Against all odds and expectations, the Furious franchise continues to bring in incredible numbers with each new movie. Last time, 2015’s Fast and the Furious 7 arrived with $147 million for it’s opening weekend. That’s a huge haul, and one that The Fate of the Furious might have a hard time reaching. However, even if it does come in under that number just a bit, we should be looking at an incredible debut weekend. Look for a first place showing for The Fate of the Furious with $135 million.

The Boss Baby remains in charge of the box office for another weekend

The baby is still boss at the box office, while no new releases managed to make much of an impact. Here’s what went down:

The Boss Baby managed to hold on to the top spot at the box office for a second weekend, bringing in an estimated $26.3 million. The film is closing in on $100 million, but will definitely be knocked off its perch next weekend with the arrival of Fate of the Furious.

Will Audiences Discover ‘Smurfs: The Lost Village’ This Weekend?

One new movie is looking to make The Boss Baby blue at the box office this weekend? Will it get it done? Here’s our prediction:

smurfs_the_lost_village

There’s a new animated Smurfs film hitting this weekend, titled Smurfs: The Lost Village. It’s not really connected to the previous live action/cgi films from a few years back, which is probably a good thing, as neither of those were particularly well-regarded. The big hurdle for this film’s money-making goals is, of course, last week’s surprise number one. The Boss Baby should have legs, which means family won’t be rushing to see Smurfs: The Lost Village right away. Look for a third place debut with $19.5 million.

The Princess Explores ‘LEGO Worlds’ And ‘LEGO City Undercover’

There is no stop to the LEGO in my house, and to be honest, I’m not complaining at all. And if you’re into LEGO video games, you shouldn’t be either.

The last month has seen the release of two new games based on the venerable bricks, but both are quite different from one another. And my in-house reviewer, my 6 1/2 year old Princess, is enjoying both of them.
