Box Office Predictions (July 3-5)

ice_age_dawn_of_the_dinosaurs public-enemies

So have you seen Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen yet?  As of Wednesday, the film has grossed about $240 million domestically and $235 million from the rest of the world.  Yikes!  Well I haven’t seen it yet and I probably won’t, but those are staggering numbers right there.

Anyway, Happy Independence Day/Weekend!  What does the cinema have in store for us… the third installment of the children’s favorite sloth and mammoth combo, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and the 1930’s gangster flick, Public Enemies.

There’s little doubt that Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs will be the kiddies’ must-see movie of the weekend and topped with the 3-D screenings, it could really give Transformers a run for the #1 spot at the box office.

Public Enemies is the Michael Mann film starring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, two superstars who really know how to draw a crowd.  With an R-rating, mixed reviews, and a lengthy runtime, it’s tough to predict how well this movie will do.  I saw the movie on Wednesday and it wasn’t a typical summer blockbuster.  There was a substance that separated it from the usual shoot-them-up kind of film.  That being said, will that hurt or help Public Enemies this weekend?
