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.
YES!!! This is the weekend I have wanted to get into since I started doing the Box Office Predictions, get ready for an epic win and an epic fail. The two new releases, first is Despicable Me 2 an animated children’s film following a massively successful first instalment with mass family appeal and big tracking numbers, and the second release is The Lone Ranger which haha should be fun to watch (not for Disney) so how will this unbelievably bloated excuse for a blockbuster do? The returning films The Heat and White House Down won’t be bothered too much this weekend but how much lower can they go and Monsters University should take whopping drop with the release of its biggest Competition Despicable Me 2. Will I get the numbers spot on? Will your predictions beat mine? Well the only way to find out is to read this prediction post and the results on Monday and go watch some movies, now to the breakdowns.
I thought whilst I was on a 90’s theme of films I would keep it going until I see some new films in cinema. So with that in mind here is one film of Stallone’s that I really have a lot of fun watching, not because of it being good but because of its fantastically funny satire and character relationships between its main cast. I have a sneaking suspicion that this film is why Stallone was picked for the Judge Dredd role, not a good choice to make really as they went so similar but tried with the Dredd material and they don’t mix well. Either way by the end of the film you’ll be asking yourself ‘would I eat a rat burger?’
