Another three films open in movie theaters across the country this weekend. The big-budget World War II flick Fury with Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf should take the weekend. Nicholas Sparks returns to the big screen with The Best of Me and The Book of Life fills the animation slot. Dolphin Tale 2 and This Is Where I Leave You make their way to Keller 8. Godzilla and The Fault In Our Stars are now available on Redbox.
Recapping Last Weekend
Gone Girl again won the weekend box office, this time by less than $3 million. Dracula Untold put up a strong $23.5 million in its debut weekend, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Gone Girl‘s $26.4 million. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day opened just shy of $18.4 million. Annabelle, in its second weekend, dropped 57.3 percent to $15.85 million to finish fourth. The horror flick was made for a paltry $6.5 million and has grossed $130 million worldwide in just 12 days of release. The Judge rounded out the top five with $13 million.
Liam Neeson and A Walk Among the Tombstones fell 80 percent between its third and fourth weekend of release. It brought in under $400,000 over the weekend while dropping off 1,668 screens. Its per-screen average came to $700. The film, made for $28 million, has now brought in $31 million worldwide in under four weeks of release.
Opening This Weekend
This is a war movie, plain and simple. “The battle scenes are staged with blunt, ground-level virtuosity” according to the New York Times. Wondering if your kids are old enough to see this? Well, if you want to take parenting advice from Brad Pitt, he’s said he’s comfortable with his 13-year-old son seeing Fury.
Prediction: $25 million
The Best of Me
If your girlfriend/wife has seen all of the other movies put out by the Sparks film factory, then you’ll be hearing about this one.
The Best of Me opens tomorrow at MX Movies in downtown St. Louis.
Prediction: $17.8 million
The Book of Life
IGN called The Book of Life “one of the most visually stunning and sumptuously executed animated movies in recent memory” and says it is definitely worth seeing in 3D.
Prediction: $15.6 million
