Weekend Preview: MI6

by The Commish on Wednesday, July 25, 2018

It’s a Mission Impossible weekend as the 6th movie hits theaters this weekend. Expect it to easily win the weekend, while Mama Mia 2 will squeak past Teen Titans Go to the Movies for second.

1. Mission Impossible – Fallout $60 million – the reviews are amazing (97 RT), the action is ridiculous, this certainly has pedigree to easily win the weekend and possibly next weekend as well.  Look for it to flirt with $200 million for a final total.

2. Mama Mia 2 $20 million – sure it didn’t win its first weekend; but expect it to keep the second spot in week 2 as well.  It might be as high as $75 million after its second weekend.

3. Teen Titans Go to the Movies $19.5 million – there are certainly plenty of kid options in the theater right now and there’s a chance Titans gets lost in the shuffle, but with excellent reviews (95 RT) and a built-in fan base, it should have a decent run and finish around $75 million.

4. Equalizer 2 $16 million – expect it to fall due to MI6 but looks destined for $90+ million.

5. Hotel Transylvania 3 $13 million – chugging along to its inevitable $140 million total.

6. Ant-Man and the Wasp $9 million – right around $185 million after the weekend.

7. Incredibles 2 $8 million – the question is whether Disney will keep it in theaters long enough to hit $600 million.

8. Jurassic World 2 $7 million – it will pass $400 million soon.

9. Skyscraper $5 million – Yup, basically White House Down 2.

10. Blindspotting $3.5 million – expanding onto 500 more screens, look for a nice uptick at the box office.
