Weekend Preview

by The Commish on Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Two new releases look to knock It from the top spot at the box office.  The race will be close, but we’re betting that Ninjago squeaks past Kingsman 2 to finish in the top spot.  It continues to have a great month and finish in third.

1. Ninjago $42 million – reviews have not been kind, presently sitting with a 58 RT score, but families have been longing for a worthwhile animated movie.  It will probably succeed despite itself.  Look for a $125 million final.

2. Kingsman 2 $41 million – also a little down in RT score (54), Kingsman brings in a huge new American cast to the spy thriller.  I’m a little worried that the movie is over 140 minutes long, but it should still flirt with a $100 million final.

3. It $30 million – It just keeps going.  It will pass DM3 for the five spot this weekend and should hold onto it until Justice League is released.

4. American Assassin $6.5 million

5. Friend Request $4 million – with so much competition, we don’t see this much-delayed movie to make many friends at the box office.

6. mother! $3.5 million – despite what some critics say, bombs away!

7. Home Again $3 million

8. Hitman’s Bodyguard $2.5 million

9. Stronger $2 million

10. Wind River $1.5 million
