Box Office Predictions (June 26-28)

transformers-2 my_sisters_keeper

It’s the end of June and the summer has seen a bunch of blockbuster films that have been banking in their success along with a few surprise hits.  But now the big guns have been pulled out.

Michael Bay’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has already hit theaters since Wednesday and will definitely take the weekend by storm.  Grossing $16 million from its midnight showings and approximately $60 million on Wednesday, I think it’s safe to say that this super-sequel will top the box office.  The question is… how much will it make?  If you haven’t heard, the critics are bashing this film to no end.  How much will that affect the public?

Also opening this weekend is My Sister’s Keeper.  This drama starring Cameron Diaz will open in about 2,600 theaters.  This film doesn’t scream “blockbuster” at all since it’s a serious drama about a girl wtih leukemia.  This will be a tear-jerking film in the middle of the loud and funny summer.  Can it survive?

Here are our predictions…

My Predictions:

1.  Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – $102 million
2.  The Proposal – $20 million
3.  The Hangover – $18 million
4.  Up – $14 million
5.  My Sister’s Keeper – $10 million

Chris’ Predictions:

1.  Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – $115 million
2.  My Sister’s Keeper – $22 million
3.  The Proposal – $20 million
4.  The Hangover – $14 million
5.  Up – $9 million

Phil’s Predictions:

1.  Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – $50 million
2.  My Sister’s Keeper – $24 million
3.  The Hangover – $14 million
4.  The Proposal – $10 million
5.  Up – $8 million

Sheehan’s Predictions:

1.  Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – $84 million
2.  The Proposal – $24 million
3.  The Hangover – $20 million
4.  My Sister’s Keeper – $15 million
5.  Up – $14 million

To no surprise, the Predictions Panel has Transformers 2 winning the box office, though our gross estimates differ greatly.  Chris and I believe Transformers will break the $100 million mark for the weekend while Phil thinks the negative reviews will hinder its success.  Meanwhile, Phil and Chris have My Sister’s Keeper in the #2 slot, predicting the movie will make over $20 its opening weekend, but Sheehan and I think the movie will make significantly less.

Let’s see how our predictions hold up.  Check back on Monday for the box office results.
