Box Office Predictions – Weekend of October 2nd, 2015

Box Office Prediction

LAST WEEKEND’S NUMBERS

  1. Hotel Transylvania 2 (1st Wknd) – $48m
  2. The Intern (1st Wknd) – $17m
  3. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (-52.9%) – $14m
  4. Everest (1st Wknd – Wide) – $13m
  5. Black Mass (-51.3%) – $11m

Well, would you look at that. I got the top five right! The only number that blew me away was Hotel Transylvania 2. Everyone knew it would win, but didn’t think it would have such a strong opening. Not much else to talk about here.

WEEKEND PREDICTIONS

  1. The Martian (1st Wknd) – $43m
  2. Hotel Transylvania 2 – $25m
  3. The Intern – $10m
  4. Sicario (1st Wknd – Wide) – $9m
  5. Maze Runner: Scorch Trials – $5m

The Walk has a limited opening this week, and that’s going to keep it out of the top five – for it probably won’t make what Everest did in its limited opening. Meanwhile, Sicario goes wide this weekend – and it should beat Maze Runner for the fourth spot. The Martian should reach Hotel Transylvania 2-like numbers this weekend, while the aforementioned Sandler-film should drop significantly, as expected.

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