Box Office Predictions - 'Kong: Skull Island'
This week sees the release of only one film, but it's a big one. Kong: Skull Island finally hits theaters this Friday and it's hoping to conquer Logan in its second weekend? Can the big ape do it?
Kong: Skull Island (WB)
Prediction: $52 million
I think the trailers for Kong: Skull Island have been solid enough to build a good amount of anticipation for the flick. Plus, there's always a certain amount of people that are guaranteed to show up for a King Kong-based film. With a pretty good marketing campaign and positive reviews (81% on Rotten Tomatoes), I think Kong: Skull Island will have just enough momentum to conquer Logan, though it could be pretty close.
I predict that Kong: Skull Island muscles its way to $52 million for the weekend, which is an acceptable opening, though it won't come close to matching Godzilla's gargantuan first weekend take ($93 million). If Kong: Skull Island makes $52 million, It'll probably have a decent shot at making $130 million by the time it's through in theaters.
Check back in on Monday for this weekend's results!
