Worldfree4u Hollywood News: Will The Meg Devour the Box Office as Summer Comes to a Close?
It’s all about Tom Cruise and Mission: Impossible: Fallout the last weekend at the box office. The sixth entry in the franchise has been reinforced by excellent reviews and has benefited from the lack of direct competition. However, that will change this weekend, as Jason Statham will participate with his giant shark movie, The Meg. Shark movies and summer go together like cold beer and baseball, which should result in a new box office champion this weekend.
The Meg has obtained very positive early reactions, despite being quite different from the Steve Alten novel on which it is based. Early tracking had the movie set between $ 18 and $ 23 million. However, the positive enthusiasm and desire for something like that from moviegoers could bring that number closer to the $ 25 million mark. Jason Statham and a giant shark. What could not be loved?
Mission: Impossible: Fallout was very good and beat Christopher Robin of Disney last weekend. Both films should be reasonably well maintained with M: I 6 slipping into number two with around $ 20 million, depending on how well the holdover proves to be. Christopher Robin, who is a new live version of Winnie the Pooh, won an A Cinemascore, which should help keep him at number three with between $ 12 and $ 15 million. The family nature and the good word of mouth should help him a lot.
Completing the top five this week should have a couple of surprises in Mama Mia! Here We Go Again and The Spy Who Duumped Me. The first is still a great success, as it approaches $ 100 million nationwide. I should be able to pass just one place to number five this week with around $ 5 million. As for The Spy Who Dumped Me, which stars Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon, it’s been shown to be a delight to the public and the action comedy will slide a spot to number four this weekend with around $ 7 millions.
The other newcomers this week are a bit mixed. Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman will be on a wave of excellent reviews. However, that may not mean a large number at the door. However, you should still be able to decipher the top ten with a few million. On the other hand, there is Slender Man, which is being simply abandoned by Sony. They have not publicized much the film and the producers fought over the strategy of launch behind the scenes. Certain fanatics of horror may appear, but this should collapse and burn with less than $ 5 million. Be sure to check out our full list of predictions and check on Sunday for the top ten estimates for the weekend. These figures come to us courtesy of Box Office Mojo.
