Box Office Predictions – Weekend of September 25, 2015

Box Office Prediction

Last weekend’s top four was surprisingly predictable, with Everest‘s IMAX opening acting as the only real ‘shock’. This week Everest has its wide release, and it should have a decent weekend. Hotel Transylvania 2 opens in North American theaters this weekend – will it outperform last weekend’s new entries?

LAST WEEKEND’S NUMBERS

  1. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (1st Wknd) – $30.3m
  2. Black Mass (1st Wknd) – $22.6m
  3. The Visit – $11.5m
  4. The Perfect Guy – $9.7m
  5. Everest (1st Wknd – Limited to IMAX) – $7.2m

I was so close to a perfect top five prediction last weekend, but Everest managed to knock me out – while Captive severely underperformed. But we need to talk about Maze Runner. Scorch Trials made less than the original film – and that, to be perfectly honest, is quite unexpected.

WEEKEND PREDICTIONS

  1. Hotel Transylvania 2 (1st Wknd) – $33m
  2. The Intern (1st Wknd) – $18m
  3. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials – $16m
  4. Everest (1st Wknd – Wide) – $16m
  5. Black Mass – $12m

Hotel Transylvania made $42m in its opening weekend, but I’m not sure the sequel will be quite as strong at the box office – add to that the fact that the last big Adam Sandler-film didn’t do too well. Everest goes wide this weekend, and it should do very well – however, it is still to fight with Black Mass and The Intern for somewhat similar audience-members. Scorch Trials should drop close to 50%.

What do you predict for this weekend’s North American box office numbers? Am I way off? Sound off in the comments.
