Box Office Predictions: 'Wolverine' to Slash Non-Superhero Competition
Sensei had the right feel on predictions last week. This weekend, another super opening.
Sensei's weekend predictions and revenue results go as follows:
1. "The Wolverine" ($79 million) - Film will easily win, the only question is how high? Buzz is pretty solid, which points to a Fast Five-like opening. The real surprise here is that the critical reviews are strong.
2. "The Conjuring" ($22 million) - Was right to pick this one last week. Again, look for positive word of mouth to create a strong second weekend.
3. "Despicable Me 2" ($13 million) - Another strong weekend. That finish as the Summer's #2 film remains in reach (currently that film is Man Of Steel).
4. "Turbo" ($12.2 million) - Film is a domestic flop. Will need strong international sales to recoup its high production budget.
5. "Red 2" ($11 million) - Look for another respectable weekend, especially for a film who's demographics lean older.
That's Sensei's calls. Enjoy the weekend.
