Box Office Predictions for June 24-26, 2011

I’m a little behind schedule today because of my earlier commitments. Nevertheless, I believe it’s an easy call at the top and the only movie that’s gonna be tough to nail is Bad Teacher. Let’s look at the Top 7.

Last Week’s Box Office Mojo Derby Rank: 105 (up 253 spots from last week) with 86.282% Accuracy (up 3.87%)

1.) CARS 2 – $69.8M – Toy Story 3 earned $128M in its opening weekend, about $30M more than its predecessor. Will Cars 2 have the same result? My answer is NO, at least because of some questionable reasons. First off, it’s in 3D, something that people may have grown tired of. Another reason is because it’s a sequel that nobody particularly wanted. And I guess critics think the same as it has relatively horrible 39% Fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes, about 30% lower than the first Cars, which just happens to be the lowest-rated Pixar movie before this was made. Kung Fu Panda 2’s downfall can also be a factor here.

2.) BAD TEACHER – $25.0M – The closest comparison I have is Knight and Day, but that involved action and sucked. This on the other hand, is something that’s looks more interesting and probably more appealing as Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel accompanies Cameron Diaz in this unique rom-com. Plus, I think people wanna know how Justin and Cameron will work together as those two dated some time in the past.

3.) Green Lantern – $20.2M – This movie will suffer the same fate as Watchmen, a heavily frontloaded movie that offers little to please audience outside of its fanbase. It’s more appealing though, so I guess a 60% drop is still better than most people expected.

4.) Super 8 – $13.1M – I haven’t had the time to watch this film, but I promise to write a review once I do.

5.) Mr. Popper’s Penguins – $9.7M – People seem to think that this one will hold well, but I believe Cars 2 will be the movie for the kids this week.

6.) X-Men: First Class – $6.1M – This movie has earned $125M since it opened, the lowest in the franchise.

7.) The Hangover Part II – $5.5M – It’s standing tall as the highest grossing film of the year so far. Transformers will challenge it next week, but it’s so disappointing that people still prefer dumb movies than intelligent yet highly satisfying movie like X-Men: First Class.
