Box Office Predictions: ‘Captain’ Of The Box Office?

Posted on the 03 April 2014 by Sirmac2 @macthemovieguy

1) Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier- 80M Weekend, 80M Total

The first Captain America had a summer release date and opened to 65M. This was, of course, pre-Avengers, and Captain America is now a slightly hotter property. That being said, the first Captain America film didn’t even break 200M at the box office, so don’t look for a 100M opening weekend. There is some growth to be had here, for sure, and perhaps even a larger first weekend audience from the original viewers. There also isn’t much competition, and no other wide releases this weekend to contend with.

2) Noah- 26M Weekend, 77M Total

Noah has been well reviewed, and accepted by audiences. It won’t dip 50%, probably around 40%, and should easily finish 2nd for the weekend.

3) Divergent- 14M Weekend, 112M Total

Another drop of about 50% is in store for the YA actioner.

4) Muppets Most Wanted- 7.5M Weekend, 43M Total

No new kids flicks, so Muppets Most Wanted should dip another 35% to about 7.5M this weekend.

5) Mr Peabody and Sherman- 7M Weekend, 105M Total

The Dreamworks duo dipped only 23% last weekend. Another small decline could put Peabody in striking distance of Muppets.

6) God’s Not Dead- 6.5M Weekend, 31M Total

God’s Not Dead had a small decline last weekend, but also added almost 400 screens, so that helped a lot. Barring another expansion, God’s Not Dead.

7) The Grand Budapest Hotel- 6M Weekend, 34M Total

Without another grand expansion, the Hotel might finally see a little decline.

8) Need For Speed- 2.5M Weekend, 42M Total

9) Sabotage- 2M Weekend, 8M Total

10) 300: Rise Of An Empire- 2M Weekend, 104M Total
