Box Office Predictions (5-7th July) Results
Sorry about the late post guys, my Dad’s in hospital and so it’s going to be a little slower around my blog. Rest assured I’ll still be reviewing Pacific Rim sometime next week. Back to the weekend’s releases and I was pretty close, in that The Lone Ranger bombed and Despicable Me 2 did great. My numbers were off by $42M over the top ten. What I didn’t expect this weekend was strong returning box office numbers, carry on reading to see what I mean. Go watch some movies and let’s look at the breakdowns.
The Heat did great this weekend only dropping 36%, doing great ladies. Monsters University dropped 56% and as expected DM2 has stepped on its toes. World War Z seems to be a surprise win this summer adding nearly $20M this weekend. The real surprise for me was a film I didn’t even know about Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain made $10M so well done that film making quite a bit on a busy weekend.
Despicable Me 2
Despicable Me 2 might not have achieved the ridiculously high numbers I predicted you can’t complain about any numbers above Monsters University, so well done DM2. $83.5M is damn respectable.
The Lone Ranger
I had nothing but low expectations for this films weekend and yet it STILL crawled under my low bar prediction. MWAHAHAHA The Lone Ranger took in just $29.2M through Friday and Sunday, weak Disney very weak.

- The Lone Ranger: -$35M
- Monsters University: -$20M
- The Heat: -$18M
