Box Office Predictions (Dec. 18-20)

The time has finally come.  After twelve years of waiting, James Cameron’s Avatar hits the theaters in standard screens, 3-D presentations, and IMAX.  Reminder: this is the man that brought you The Abyss, Aliens, and Terminator.  Oh, and not to mention a little film called Titanic.  Cameron has a knack for reinventing the wheel and Avatar is no different.

I guess there’s still a question whether or not people are going to see this epic adventure that takes us to another world of Pandora with blue people.  Nonetheless, I am excited to see this film.

Oh yeah, there’s another film coming out this weekend.  It’s a romantic comedy called Did You Hear About the Morgans? starring Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker.  I’m not so sure if those two actors can really attract an audience, but both have been known for their romantic comedies and fans of the genre will know that.

Here are our predictions:

1.  Avatar – $80 million
2.  The Princess and the Frog – $17 million
