Box Office Predictions
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will win the weekend. Mark your calendars, you heard it here first. All right, maybe not. Still, I guarantee it will destroy everything. Having opened this past Wednesday, it did gangbuster business, taking in more than $60 million in one day. No, it did not overtake the current top dog, The Dark Knight, but it is still nothing to sneeze at. What will be interesting now is whether or not poor word of mouth will hurt the weekend? No doubt the movie will take the top spot, just by how much? The rest of the chart will probably just slide down a bit.
Here is how I think it could play out.
|1||Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen||$115 million|
|2||The Proposal||$19 million|
|5||My Sisters Keeper||$10 million|
|6||Year One||$8 million|
|7||The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3||$7 million|
|8||Night of the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian||$6 million|
|9||Star Trek||$4 million|
|10||Land of the Lost||$2 million|
