Weekend Box Office Predictions: June 30 – July 2

Last weekend, the fifth installment in the Michael Bay Transformers franchise, The Last Knight, drastically under-performed. Coming in at $44.6 million, the film has received the lowest grossing opening weekend in the franchise.

With that knowledge, the introductory weekend to July will prove interesting at the box office. Transformers will likely see a significant drop, and three other wide releases look to take its place at number one.

Weekend Box Office Predictions: June 23 – June 25

All roads have been cleared for Transformers: The Last Knight this weekend. The only new wide release film domestically, The Last Knight will open in 3,900 screens.

This doesn’t mean that other films aren’t around to put up competition, but will any of them be able to topple the box office behemoth that is Transformers?

Weekend Box Office Predictions: June 16 – June 18

Mid-June 2017 sees the release of four new wide release films at the domestic box office, all in various genres. The Tupac biopic All Eyez on Me, releasing in 2,400 theaters, will look to bank off of the success of 2015’s similar Straight Outta Compton. Shark thriller 47 Meters Down—3,500 theaters—will look to bank off of the minor success of last year’s The Shallows.

Then there is Disney-Pixar’s Summer effort Cars 3. The first sequel in the series made about $50 million less than the original, which itself is only the 10th highest grossing film in the Pixar family.

Along with these new films, potential flops like The Mummy and runaway successes like Wonder Woman continue their box office runs this weekend.

With all of these films competing, let’s try to maneuver a box office top five for this weekend. Shall we?

June has a lot going for it at the domestic box office. Following Wonder Woman‘s record breaking opening weekend ($103 million), this weekend is going to impress with the added release of Universal’s The Mummy. Two other new releases—A24’s It Comes At Night and Bleecker Street’s Megan Leavey—look to compete against the impressive lineup of current releases that also includes Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.

With all of this competition, who comes out on top?
