Weekend Previdw

by The Commish on Thursday, May 31, 2018

Interesting weekend coming up at the box office.  With no real new competition, expect Solo to continue to hold the top spot on the chart.  Deadpool 2 will come in second place and newcomer Adrift will finish in third.

1. Solo $33.5 million – something is wrong as we’re predicting the worst numbers for a second weekend for a Star Wars movie since Return of the Jedi.  I believe that Solo had the wrong date to begin with, but there’s nothing you can do about it now.  Look for this decent drop to continue as it struggles to make $210 million.

2. Deadpool 2 $20.5 million – will it hit $300 million, that’s the question.

3. Adrift $11.5 million – the top of our new releases gives a decent alternative from the standard summer fare, look for it to fall just short of $40 million.

4. Avengers 3 $9.5 million – yup, $660 million seems like the final resting spot.

5. Action Point $9 million – there has been zero buzz about this, while I’m hesitant to bet against Knoxville, I don’t like its chances.

6. Book Club $6.5 million – like what we’re seeing out of the Club.

7. Upgrade $3.5 million – insignificant for Flickamo players.

8. Life of the Party $3 million – while I’m still not super excited about the end result, you have to be impressed with its legs.

9. Breaking In $2 million

10. Overboard $1.5 million
