Notable Openings This Weekend: I, Frankenstein
Coming fresh off the heels of my brilliant $16 Million opening weekend prediction for Ride Along (it made $41.5 Million), I’m back to bring you more box office predictions! As we settle into the crap part of the movie calendar year, we only got one major release this weekend, and it’s I, Frankenstein, starring Aaron Eckhart. I guess Harvey Dent finally got the rest of his face scarred.
Based on the fact that I didn’t see a single review posted for this film until around 11:59pm ET last night, and that it currently sits with a hefty 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, I’m not really expecting I, Frankenstein to be “ALIVE” at the box office this weekend. Aaron Eckhart hasn’t exactly chosen wisely since his Dark Knight days, and the trailers for this look dreadful. I, Frankenstein…more like I, Don’t Give A Damn-stein.
How Will It All Break Down…
Ride Along will score a solid second weekend due to lack of competition. Lone Survivor should fend off I, Frankenstein, which will be in a close battle for third place. Wow…never in my life did I think I’d be analyzing box office numbers between the Frankenstein monster, and an animated squirrel in a movie called The Nut Job…but here we are.
TOP 5 BOX OFFICE PREDICTIONS
1) Ride Along — $23 Million
2) Lone Survivor — $14 Million
3) I, Frankenstein — $12.5 Million
4) The Nut Job — $12 Million
5) Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit — $8.5 Million
