Men In Black 3 was virtually guaranteed to be #1 last week, it was the only new blockbuster and The Avengers had been out for a while.
And the following weekend it can’t possibly compete with Madagascar 3 and Prometheus.
But this coming weekend there is a non-blockbuster movie that will compete for box office honors: Snow White and the Huntsman. Despite mixed reviews, it will most likely cause MIB3 to fall to #2 in the rankings.
Screen Crave makes this prediction:
- Snow White and the Huntsman – $35 Million
- MIB3 - $23.9 Million
- The Avengers - $23 Million
- Battleship – $5.5 Million
- The Dictator – $4.7 Million
Personally, I think Snow White will do much, much better – $45-$50 million, with MIB3 dropping to $19 million, possibly less than The Avengers.
UPDATE: Snow White took $56 million, and MIB3 took $29 million, demonstrating that it does have some staying power after all.
