Here's a short post for this weekend's box office.
1. Evil Dead- $35 million
Popular horror franchise gets a reboot AND it has a 63% RT score AND the original filmmaker is producer. People are going to turn out for this one.
2. The Croods- $20 million
No animated films mean that the marketplace is going to be wide open for The Croods to reach $125 million.
3. G.I. Joe: Retaliation- $19 million
Evil Dead might take away some grosses but there is no other PG-13 action film out: this is it. And the A- Cinemascore means it will hold decently.
4. Jurassic Park 3D- $17 million
3D is dying and 3D rereleases are dying. There's why this film won't be a big hit.
5. Olympus Has Fallen- $9 million
R rated action fare will be hurt by the onslaught of G.I. Joe and Evil Dead but still will hold well thanks to fan support.
