15/04/2016 Box Office Predictions


It’s a weekend that promises a lot and really needs to deliver for a lot of people. The Jungle Book and Barbershop 2 will make their debuts and Batman v Superman and The Boss need to perform decently, too.

The Jungle Book

Budget: $175 M

Rotten Tomatoes: 94%

Current Box Office: $31.7 M

Domestic Box Office: $0 M

Weekend Box Office: $0 M

Box Office Prediction: $80 M

Comments: The first of two movies based on the legendary children’s film, The Jungle Book should take first place without breaking much of a sweat. It’s also the final film to feature Gary Shandling.

Barbershop: The Next Cut

Budget: N/A

Rotten Tomatoes: 91%

Overall Box Office: N/A

Domestic Box Office: N/A

Weekend Box Office: N/A

Box Office Prediction: $20 M

Comments: It’s third movie in the Barbershop series and it’s reviews are phenomenal with many critics calling it one of the best comedies of the year. I do expect Barbershop to beat The Boss overall, but I don’t think it’ll match more The Boss did in its opening weekend.

The Boss

Budget: $29 M

Rotten Tomatoes: 19%

Overall Box Office: $30 M

Domestic Box Office: $28 M

Weekend Box Office: $23.6 M

Box Office Prediction: $12 M

Comments: The Boss hasn’t been nearly as successful as they thought it would be. It might be the bad reviews or the jaded view of the film’s star Melissa McCarthy, but audiences just aren’t going for this one. I can see The Boss adding just south of $10 M, but I don’t believe it’ll do much more.

  1. I think Barber Shop is going to do better than $20 million. Won’t be near Jungle Book, but I’m thinking it’s going to be closer to $30 million. You might be a little high on Jungle Book, but not by much. It does have great reviews so it could easily pass projections on great word of mouth.


  2. Based on how pumped some people are about seeing The Jungle Book, I’m gonna say that this weekend, it’s gonna make $90 million at least. There’s the nostalgia for the movie PLUS talking animals PLUS not too many good choices at the theater.

    Now, Barbershop is deffo going to make more than what was predicted. I’m thinking somewhere in the neighbourhood of $45 million. Positive reviews aside, this is a series that has an audience. I got passes to a screening last night and can say that I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would.

    The Boss’s weekend earnings might barely reach $10 million (let alone $12 m).


  3. The Jungle Book is absolutely going to kill it. I’m really intrigued to see how well that one does. The hubs and I may sneak in a visit during the week if we have the time.
