Weekend Preview: Quiet Time

by The Commish on Thursday, April 19, 2018

With Avengers: Infinity War just around the corner, the box office welcomes three newcomers as they take on last week’s champ Rampage.  We’re predicting a new number one this weekend, but it will be A Quiet Place as it jumps back into the top spot.  Rampage will be dropped down a spot.  I Feel Pretty will finish in third.

1. A Quiet Place $21 million – it will be above $130 million by the end of the weekend; this box office sleeper has been a super surprise and now is a lock for the top 20 of 2018!
2. Rampage $17.5 million – it probably won’t hit $100 million, but its still better than Baywatch.
3. I Feel Pretty $14.5 million – the reviews are not good (36 RT) and competition will limit its success.  Looks like a sub-$40 million total.
4. Truth or Dare $7.5 million – will fall just short of $30 million by the end of the weekend, but still moving towards a $40 million finish.
5. Ready Player One $6.5 million – will probably finish around $135 million and make the top 25 for 2018.
6. Blockers $6 million – finishing around $57 million by the end of its run, not horrible, not great.
7. Super Troopers 2 $5.5 million – this one is focused on a very specific audience, there’s a real chance for this to bomb in a big way.
8. Black Panther $4 million – should have the legs to make it to $680 million, truly a super result for Marvel’s latest.
9. Isle of Dogs $3.5 million – will finish down from the last couple of Wes Anderson films.
10. Traffik $3 million – catch it while you can!
