Box Office Predictions (Sept. 11-13)

The second weekend of September has a variety of new releases that’ll hopefully do better than last week’s.

First up, Tyler Perry is back with I Can Do Bad All By Myself.  If there’s something that I’ve learned, it’s never bet against Tyler Perry.  He has a brand that fits perfectly to the targeted demographic he aims at.  Opening in only about 2,200 theaters, Perry’s new film has a good shot at topping the box office.

Next is the animated, sci-fi, adventure from producer Tim Burton titled 9.  The 77-minute, animated feature is rated PG-13.  I think the rating will actually hurt its box office result because it’s less family-friendly and more youth-adult oriented.  Nonetheless, this post-apocayptic film has been receiving mixed reviews.  Opening in less than 2,000 theaters, this is a tough movie to predict.

Aside from the comedy and animated/adventure releases, there’s a teen-horror flick out this weekend, Sorority Row.  The R-rated, slasher flick hopes to continue the horror genre’s success this year.  Hey, a bunch of hot chicks running for their lives from a killer?  Sounds entertaining enough.

Finally, the Kate Beckinsale mystery/thriller, Whiteout, hits the screens this weekend.  The film had very little advertising during the weeks leading up to its release, which is why I believe this film is bound to flop.  Opening in over 2,700 theaters this weekend, expect this film to crash and burn.

Here are our predictions…
