As predicted, this weekend the box office belonged once again to our reigning number one. Here’s what went down:
The Fate of the Furious continued to be a big winner at the box office, remaining in first place for the third weekend in a row with $19.3 million. Next weekend, the film is guaranteed to drop with the return of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Consider this weekend the calm before the storm, as there are no blockbuster releases coming out. How much money will the guaranteed number one bring in? Here’s our prediction:
The Circle is an adaptation of a David Eggers Young Adult novel, starring Tom Hanks and Emma Watson. While you might think that this duo would guarantee big box office numbers,this movie has really flown under the radar and there isn’t really any hype surrounding it. Emma Watson is riding a high thanks to Beauty and the Beast, but it’s doubtful that it will translate to any real audience. Look for a third place debut for The Circle with $9 million.
It was another Fast and Furious weekend at the box office, as the latest from Vin Diesel and his family drove over the competition. Here’s what went down:
The Fate of the Furious remained in the top spot for the second weekend in a row, bringing in an estimated $38 million, raising its total to $163 million. Though this is not a bad number at all, the film did drop a huge 63%, which means that this instalment in the franchise will likely not have serious legs. Not that that is really anything to worry about, consider The Fate of the Furious still managed to score the biggest global opening weekend of all time when it debuted. Nobody is crying here, that’s for sure.
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.
Don’t trust anybody.
That’s the lesson the Teen Titans learn in the new Warner Brothers Animation/DC Universe Original Movie, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, which hits Blu-ray/DVD this Tuesday.
It’s been a successful, but not HUGELY successful weekend for this week’s big new release. Here’s what went down:
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.
And here it is: the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and boy, does it feel ominous.
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:
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 trailer for Thor: Ragnarok just dropped and it’s the most fun you’re going to have today!
Thor: Ragnarok is out November 3rd, 2017.
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.
