Has the time come for The Hunger Games to give up the top spot? Sadly yes, but it still holds strong. If The Hunger Games sees another 36.3% drop, it’ll come in with about $14 million and, should the Zac Efron-starrer The Lucky One perform as well as Charlie St. Cloud, it’ll post about $14.5 million. As for Think Like a Man, that one’s on track to match Death at a Funeral with about $16 million. Lastly for the new entries, should Chimpanzee follow in African Cats and Oceans’ footsteps, it’s heading towards a $6 million opening weekend.
After a mediocre start, The Three Stooges should hold on rather well with the lack of comedy competition. If it loses 40% of its opening earnings, it’ll post another $10 million. Similarly, there’s no reason to think any of the newcomers will steal The Cabin in the Woods’ thunder, so that one could be heading towards a mere 30% loss, thanks to positive word of mouth. That means Cabin could take another $10 million to the bank as well.
After Titanic 3D shocked us with a mere 31% weekend two drop, I’m certainly not betting against it this time around. Weekend three could have a 40% drop in store for the 3D re-release, which would add $7 million to its total. American Reunion, on the other hand, took a whopping 50% hit last weekend and while it’ll very likely drop less this time around, it’s still looking at a 45% loss, which would leave it with $5.5 million and the 8th position on the top ten.
While Wrath of the Titans continues its landslide fall, Mirror Mirror holds on strong and will undoubtedly top it on the charts. Should Mirror Mirror drop 40% and Wrath of the Titans 50%, the former will snag another $4 million and the latter just $3 million, which won’t even be enough to trump 21 Jump Street and stay in the top ten.
