Weekend Preview

by The Commish on Thursday, April 5, 2018

Four new releases hit theaters this weekend with A Quiet Place looking like the one to beat.  Ready Player One should have enough pull to secure second place over Blockers.

1. A Quiet Place $29 million – at a staggering 99 on RT, the horror pic looks to start the April box office with a muted boom.  While we aren’t predicting Get Out final numbers, it would not surprise us for AQP to have excellent legs and pass the $100 million plateau once everything is said and done.

2. Ready Player One $21.5 million – look for it to be around $90 million after Sunday and still headed to a $130 million final. 

3. Blockers $18.5 million – I think this one could have legs.  With a healthy 87 RT score, this could see great returns through the month.  Look for a $70 million total.

4. Acrimony $8 million – on its way to $40 million.

5. Black Panther $7 million – this is the weekend it passes Titanic!

6. I Can Only Imagine $6.5 million – will it have legs to make $90 million?

7. Sherlock Gnomes $4.5 million – a little less at the overall box office than we expected at the beginning of the year.

8. Pacific Rim $4 million – while this is right on target.

9. The Miracle Season $3 million – how many Oscar winners does it take to make a high school volleyball movie?  Apparently two.

10. Chappaquiddick $2.5 million
