Weekend Box Office Predictions: 3/17-3/19

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…

Most Anticipated Films of 2017 (NO SEQUELS!)

As promised, we will look now at the most anticipated films of 2017 that are NOT sequels, reboots, franchises, etcetera, etcetera. It is admittedly harder to know what non-franchise films will rise to the surface this far in advance. Some of these films are still big budget affair, and this is because of this point that it is hard to know what indie films will be coming in 2017.
