Weekend Preview: The Last Box Office Champ

by The Commish on Thursday, December 14, 2017

The 2017 fantasy box office year has led to this moment.  Will the number 1 drafted movie perform?  With an amazing 95 RT score it certainly has the critical help to point it in the right direction.  I’m going out on a limb this week and predicting that Star Wars will win the weekend.  Ferdinand will debut in second place and Coco will drop to third.

1. The Last Jedi $220 million – fan base is there, reviews are excellent, the only thing holding it back is length, should flirt with $800 million.

2. Ferdinand $25 million – thinking it will open stronger than most predictions and finish around $150 million.

3. Coco $11.5 million – will definitely take a hit, but should still continue its solid run.

4. Wonder $5.3 million – different crowds will allow Wonder to keep rolling.

5. The Disaster Artist $4.2 million – could continue to make money right through award season.

6. Justice League $4.1 million – a disappointment at $245 million.

7. Daddy’s Home 2 $3.5 million – will end with a 3.5X multiplier.

8. Thor $3.3 million – one of the great box office surprises, increases the chances of Black Panther breaking out huge.

9. Murder on the Orient Express $3 million – should still chug to $100 million.

10. The Star $2.1 million – quietly making small amounts of money.
