Box Office Predictions (Oct. 30 – Nov. 1)

michael-jackson-this-is-it2

Welcome back to The Entertainment Blur’s weekly box office predictions.  It is Halloween weekend!  I’m not a fan of Halloween at all, but still I’m pretty excited this year.  As for new releases this holiday, there’s only one:  This Is It, the Michael Jackson documentary/concert movie.  The film officially came out on Wednesday, but let’s see how well it can do through the weekend.

Will there be anyone besides Michael Jackson fans who will make the trip to the theater this weekend instead of dressing up as their favorite superhero or villain and either beg for candy or attend a party?  That is yet to be seen but I have a feeling This Is It could have a strong weekend.  Not having any competition certainly helps, plus Michael Jackson’s death is still timely.  And the critics are eating this movie up with an 80% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Or will the horror movies make one last push this weekend?  Paranormal Activity topped last weekend’s box office, and this is Saw VI‘s second weekend.

Here are our predictions…

My Predictions:

1.  This Is It – $35 million
2.  Paranormal Activity – $16 million
3.  Saw VI – $14 million
4.  Where the Wild Things Are – $8 million
5.  Couples Retreat – $6 million

Sheehan’s Predictions:

1.  This Is It – $40 million
2.  Paranormal Activity – $18 million
3.  Saw VI – $15 million
4.  Where the Wild Things Are – $14 million
5.  Law Abiding Citizen – $12 million

Dan’s Predictions:

1.  This Is It – $24 million
2.  Paranormal Activity – $20 million
3.  Saw VI – $12 million
4.  Where the Wild Things Are – $8 million
5.  Astro Boy – $7 million
