Box Office Predictions: Think Like A Man To Trump All Four Newcomers

Good thing the summer movie season is literally right around the corner because this could be a dreary weekend at the box office. We’ve got four new wide releases arriving and none are expected to crack the $20 million mark. The Pirates! Band of Misfits has got 3,300+ screens, but it’ll be lucky to match Arthur Christmas’ $12 million opening. The Five-Year Engagement is getting the next widest release and while it may want to be the next Bridesmaids, it’ll only become the next Jumping the Broom with a $15 million start.

Then we’ve got Safe, which looks to follow in the footsteps of another Jason Statham film, Crank: High Voltage. Should that be the case, it’ll start its box office run off with a mere $7 million. Last up for the newcomers is The Raven and it looks to be heading straight towards a Zodiac-sized opening of about $13 million.

Now for the box office veterans. With the mediocre new entries, Think Like a Man should have no trouble holding on to that top spot. Even if its profits are slashed in half that’ll still give it $17 million for its second weekend out. Should The Lucky One keep in line with another Zac Efron-starrer, 17 Again, it’s heading towards a 50% loss and an $11 million weekend two total. As for The Hunger Games, even with four new films entering the race, there’s no reason to think it’ll lose more that 40%, perhaps even just 35%, which would give it another $9.5 million.

Chimpanzee is moving into its second weekend and even though it had a strong start, should it perform like the other Disneynature Earth Day debuts, it’ll drop at least 50%, leaving it with just about $5 million. Should The Three Stooges drop just 42.6% yet again, it’ll have just enough to steal the #8 position from Chimpanzee and take $5.5 million to the bank. Sadly this will be The Cabin in the Woods’ final weekend in the top ten, the film poised to lose another 45% for a $4.5 million weekend three total. Predictions
