Hunting Down Box Office Truth Since 2006
Welcome to the weekend where the healing begins. Will it be a good financial weekend? No, of course not, it's dud city out there but we WILL see a film make over $10m. Onward to bold and beautiful predictions!
5. The Covenant $4.6m
The last week in the top five, and we'll all miss it very much.
4. The Last Kiss $5.6m
I really enjoyed this, but it sits at a rotten 46 percent on Rotten Tomatoes which bodes poorly. It's also rated R which hurts its chances. This number feels like more of a hope than a prediction.
3. Everyone's Hero $8.7m
It is always hard to say whether parents will respond to a kid's film, but I've got this number low based on lack of ads and the fact that the children are back at school.
2. The Black Dahlia $9.5m
The sad fact is no one cares if it's any good ... they only care that it looks boring. Where are the explosions? Where are the automatic machine guns? Nevertheless, $9.5m is a nice little chunk of change for something that had to be low budget.
1. Gridiron Gang $16.1m
This result should make you sad to be an American. It looks like Dangerous Minds on a football field, or a remake of The Longest Yard without laughs (though in fairness that one didn't have laughs either).
