Mid-April is not heavy with high profile releases. Next weekend sees the saturation of four wide releases, including Disney’s nature doc Born in China, A24’s action comedy Free Fire, and the Rosario Dawson-starring thriller Unforgettable.
This weekend, however, we see only one major release, and it could be a doozy. The Fate of the Furious. Furious 7, the franchise’s previous installment, made over a billion dollars worldwide and an opening weekend gross of $147 million domestic.
Will The Fate of the Furious live up to those numbers?

Last weekend saw the record-breaking opening of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which raked in a phenomenal $174 million. The film broke the record for best March opening weekend and the best opening for a PG-rated film, beating out last year’s Finding Dory by almost $40 million.

With the large quantity of competition, how far will Beauty and the Beast drop?

Beauty and the Beast is the Disney live action remake of the 1991 animated hit. The tale as old as time is one of ostracism and romance. A sorceress condemns the arrogant Prince (Dan Stevens) to the realm of beast until he learns to love, and it will take the only other literate person in miles (Emma Watson) to break this spell (because, really, the only thing Belle and the Beast really connect on is their shared ability to read).

This weekend sees the release of yet another Disney juggernaut, Beauty and the Beast. Next to that is a much smaller new release in Blumhouse Tilt’s The Belko Experiment.
Vying for attention outside of the new kids on the block are a number of healthy box office contenders. Kong: Skull Island and Logan are two big box office draws still looking good in their second and third weekends. And Get Out remains strong as the genre engine that could.
How will the two newcomers fare in this market? Well…let’s just plop of photo here to break up the text before we get to the answer to that question…
