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?

Weekend Box Office Predictions: June 2 – June 4

The first weekend of June is looking to be a smash at the domestic box office. A strong opening for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales could translate into an equally strong second week. The impressive run of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is looking to continue into June.

And then there’s this little movie. This DC Studios film by the name of Wonder Woman.

Trailer Rundown: Death Note, Captain Underpants, My Cousin Rachel

What do a murderous notebook, a man dressed only in underwear, and a Gothic cousin who serves strange tea have in common? Well, nothing. But the movies that contain these premises have new trailers out. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?

Death Note is an upcoming Netflix original film. Based on the cult anime series, this Western adaptation stars Keith Stanfield, Nat Wolff, and Willem Dafoe. While we mostly only get a glimpse of Nat Wolff’s Light Turner (Light Yagami in the anime), save for one shot of Stanfield’s L and one off-screen line from Dafoe’s demonic Ryuk, the trailer does its job enticing the audience.

The image of Stanfield, in particular, is a great one. On a red backdrop, his face partially concealed, it is an intriguing shot. The focus on Wolff is less promising, his lines and facial reactions coming off Continue reading Trailer Rundown: Death Note, Captain Underpants, My Cousin Rachel
