Justin Bieber, Adam Sandler, and a Gnome will compete with a slew of new releases all opening this President Day’s Weekend. New releases ranging from the Big Momma’s sequel Big Momma’s: Like Father, Like Son, starring Martin Lawrence,to Glee’s Dianna Argon in the Twilight-esque I AM NUMBER FOUR, and the action packed thriller Unknown starring Liam Neeson.
And now for our predictions…
# 1 I Am Number Four
Opening this weekend with no real major stars is I AM NUMBER FOUR. The first release of the upcoming swarm of Twilight rip-offs should find itself opening in the number #1 as Bieber Fever and Valentines Day have all passed. Teen audiences are suckers for romantic thrillers and I AM NUMBER FOUR certainly fills the void as there is no real direct competition . Look for a solid #1 opening and fast and quick drop.
Our Prediction:$ 26-30M 4Day Opening Weekend Box Office
Gnome & Juliet surprised everyone last weekend with a larger then expected opening weekend. With no competition at all, a four day weekend with kids off from school, should help Gnomeo & Juliet hold steady this weekend to come in at # 2.
Our Predictions: $23-26M 4Day Weekend Box Office
Two years ago Liam Neeson had a surprise hit with Taken — adult moviegoers were craving an adult thriller. This weekend should be no different as adult audiences have been with out a solid movie going option for weeks. Add in no direct competition, entertaining trailers and Unknown should land at the #3 spot this weekend.
Our Prediction : $20-22M 4 Day Opening Weekend Box Office
Adam Sandlers Just Go With It opened last weekend on the lower end of debuts for an Adam Sandler film. Competition is fierce this weekend with a slate of new releases including Martin Lawrence Big Momma’s House Sequel. Just Go With It’s only saving grace is a four day weekend with kids/students off from class. With that said, look for Just Go With It to come in at #4 this President’s Day Weekend.
Our Prediction: # $18-19M 4 Day Weekend
Like The Whole 10 Yards before it, the new Big Momma’s House is a sequel that no one really asked for. 11 years ago, Martin Lawrence scored a major, unexpected hit with Big Momma’s House. However, the sequel that followed was a modest success at best as there is not much demand for a third movie in the series, and Lawrence has seen his star power drop in large proportions since the first film was released. Those looking for a cheap laugh, Martin Lawrence fans, will be the only ones showing up this weekend and will help propel the film to a # 5 debut
Our Prediction : $16M 4Day Opening Weekend Box Office
