Weekend Preview

by The Commish on Thursday, May 17, 2018

The Avengers have finally met their match in the form of another Marvel character.  Deadpool 2 hits theaters this weekend and has eyes on besting its original’s $132 million debut.  Infinity War will drop to second place after a three-week hold on the top spot, while Book Club enters the charts in the third spot.

1. Deadpool 2 $129 million – expect an opening similar to the original’s, but we don’t think it will have the legs for as an impress total, expect $310 million.

2. Avengers 3 $29 million – still looking good for a $650 million total.

3. Book Club $10.5 million – reviews are mixed, but there is definitely an audience for this feel-good comedy, look for a final total around $35 million.

4. Show Dogs $8.5 million – why?

5. Life of the Party $8 million – could end up being McCarthy’s lowest box office result since the Bridesmaids push.

6. Breaking In $7.5 million – still on pace for $40 million.

7. Overboard $5.5 million – funnily enough, may end the year as a top 60 movie.

8. A Quiet Place $4 million – will pass Get Out’s total this weekend, what a pick for Flickamo players!

9. I Feel Pretty $2 million – unfortunately it will finish just shy of $50 million.

10. Rampage $1.5 million – players were probably hoping for a better result than a top 35 movie.
