08/04/2016 Box Office Predictions


It’s Friday, Friday! Gotta get down on Friday! Time for our box office predictions going into the week-end. We have Melissa McCarthy’s The Boss debuting, as-well as the interesting case of Batman v Superman.

Batman v Superman

Budget: $250 M

Rotten Tomatoes: 29%

Current Box Office: $720 M

Domestic Box Office: $270 M

Weekend Box Office: $51 M

Box Office Prediction: $22.59 M

Comments: Batman v Superman had an awful drop-off last weekend, losing almost 70% of it’s debut week-end, a clear sign that audiences disliked the movie. We expect Batman v Superman to continue to drop, but it’ll still have enough the tank to reign supreme.

The Boss

Budget: $29 M

Rotten Tomatoes: 18%

Overall Box Office: N/A

Domestic Box Office: N/A

Weekend Box Office: N/A

Box Office Prediction: $20 M

Comments:It’s the debut weekend for Melissa McCarthy’s latest awful comedy film, in which, of course, she stars as an obese woman with 90% of the jokes aimed against her weight. It’ll take about $20 million as McCarthy’s star continues to fade. Decent, but the studio will want more, despite what they may say.

Hardcore Henry

Budget: $10 M

Rotten Tomatoes: 49%

Overall Box Office: N/A

Domestic Box Office: N/A

Weekend Box Office: N/A

Box Office Prediction: $10 M

Comments: Hardcore Henry is the most interesting prospect at the box office this weekend. I only expect the science-fiction action to pull in about $10 M, but that’ll cover its budget and mean Sharlto Copley won’t be too embarrassed by his participation. I expect it to resonate with a young male audience, which could mean it has a future as a cult flick, but based on the mixed reviews, I doubt it.

See you on Monday for the round-up!

  1. I’m going to go out on a limb & guess Hardcore Harry does better than projected. Not enough to win the weekend, but maybe a surprise 2nd place. The bad reviews & bad drop from the 1st week make me think BVS could fall into 2nd. I doubt it, but I wouldn’t be surprised.


      • Hmm, I don’t. If anything, it sounds like it’ll be as craptastic as any of Uwe Boll’s movies based off videogames.

        The young male audience might eventually watch Hardcore Henry, but I doubt a lot of them will go to the movie theater to do so.


  2. This weekend is going to inflict even more pain on Snyder. I see Batman v Superman dropping to second and Melissa McCarthy’s cash-in taking number one. I guess this means BvS isn’t cracking a billion WW. If you’d of told me that five months ago, I’d never of believed you.


  3. Seeing how I’m reading this post now and it’s been announced that The Boss will most probably top the box office, I’m gonna say that Hardcore Henry will probably rake in about $7 million. The reviews for that movie are terrible. I just don’t know how much of a great alternative it’d be for people who are sick of BvS, don’t care for Melissa M, and/or have already seen Zootopia.
