Predictions for ‘Wall-E’, ‘Wanted’

Here are my predictions for the upcoming weekend of June 27-29:

1)Wall-E (3,992 theaters) – $63 million

2)Wanted (3,175 theaters) – $35.5 million

3)Get Smart – $20.7 million

4)The Incredible Hulk – $11 million

5)Kung Fu Panda – $10.9 million

6)The Love Guru – $6.4 million

7)Indiana Jones 4 – $5.3 million

8)The Happening – $4.7 million

9)Sex and the City – $4 million

10)You Don’t Mess with the Zohan – $3.8 million

UPDATED: My Wall-E prediction was dead on as it rocketed to $63.1 million, significantly higher than Pixar’s previous film, Ratatouille, which made $47 million on this same weekend last year but still below Pixar’s top openers, The Incredibles and Finding Nemo. Both opened to about $70 million each. Wanted was quite a bit higher than I expected with a $50.9 million opening, nearly doubling the previous high for a June R-rated debut. This was the first time in box office history that two films debuted to more than $50 million on the same weekend.
