Now In-Theater: June 16, 2017
The motion pictures now in-theater are from various Hollywood and independent movie studios. Some of the films are in wide release (600 screens or more in the United States and Canada) and some are in limited release (a motion picture that is playing in a select few theaters across the country [typically in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco]).
This Week’s In-Theater Releases
All Eyez on Me
47 Meters Down
The Book of Henry
Warriors of the Dawn
Pray for Rain
Hare Krishna! The Mantra, the Movement and the Swami Who Started it All
Cars 3 will be Number One at the box office this weekend. From everything that I have read about the film, it is the best of Cars films thus far. In addition, the storyline for the film is reportedly engaging and the most satisfying of the series. Finally, Cars 3 is a animated Pixar film, its a family film, and its a new film in-theater.
Wonder Woman will be Second this weekend at the box office. Wonder Woman will drop 35-45% of its audience from last weekend. It will retain enough of its audience, including some new audience members, so that it is second to only Cars 3 this weekend. DC Films really needed Wonder Woman to do well at the box office and the film has answered their prayers.
Rough Night will be Third this weekend at the box office. This because of two reasons: 1.) The Mummy is going to lose more than half of its domestic audience this weekend, possibly even 60% of it, and 2.) Rough Night is led by Scarlett Johansson and it looks as though it is a female version of The Hangover. The latter is most-likely how the film was pitched and that will appeal to some.
The Mummy will be Fourth this weekend. Domestically, this weekend is going to be rough for The Mummy. With the aforementioned drop it will endure and the poor reviews it has received, the film will not make back its production budget, let alone its advertising budget, in the Untied States. Everything regarding The Mummy, though, is not dire. Internationally (one of the key factors in a film getting green-lit), The Mummy is doing well. Internationally, The Mummy has already made $140 Million. Internationally, Universal’s Dark Universe is off to a decent start.
All Eyez On Me may open in Fifth Place. It has a strong cast, it tells a story that many have been waiting to be told, and it appeals to an undeserved audience in America. Blacks and other minorities. Empire‘s success on Fox proved the viability of an entertainment project led by a nearly all minority cast. All Eyez On Me may do the same.
