Box Office Predictions: All-American 'Man Of Steel' Ready to Soar
Sensei extended his streak last week. This weekend, get ready for the return of an icon.
Sensei's weekend predictions and revenue results go as follows:
1. "Man Of Steel" ($108 million) - Considering
this one is a reboot of the classic character, complete with new faces
and production teams, this is an amazing box office opening. Also, be
very careful with the film critics. Liberal ones will try to bash this
pic (considering Superman is a very conventional character who is hardly
rewritten). Their aim is to influence more political changes in the Man Of Steel's future installments. My advice is to ignore these critics entirely this weekend.
2. "This Is the End" ($27 million) - Love
what I'm seeing here. The premise is great, and instead of relying on
just one comic actor as the lead (which hasn't been that great at the
box office), this one brings us a whole diverse cast to enjoy. Look for
healthy results here.
3. "Now You See Me" ($10 million) - Despite being against Man Of Steel, film will again pull decent numbers.
4. "Fast & Furious 6" ($9.7 million) - Film will pass Fast Five
to become the franchise's highest grossing domestic entry. Living out
your box office future, one quarter mile at a time, is working out just
fine for this one.
5. "The Purge" ($9.5 million) - Films
in this genre usually post big second weekend drops. No worries though,
considering how this film only cost $3 million to produce, this one has
plenty of box office treasure to grab in coming weeks.
That's Sensei's calls. Enjoy the weekend.
