Box Office Estimates for February 8-10

Todd Thatcher

As we awake from a sleepy box office weekend and the sleepy Super Bowl Sunday night, we do so to a quartet of newcomers for our FML consideration. These pics have the opportunity to populate the top four slots and our pricing gurus have them slotted to do just that.


Todd from www.toddmthatcher.com here bringing you my take on the weekend ahead as animated sequel "The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part", comedic remake "What Men Want ", Liam Neeson action thriller "Cold Pursuit", and horror flick "The Prodigy" all debut.


While "Lego" should have no issue nabbing the #1 slot, I have it falling far short of what its 2014 predecessor accomplished at $69 million. I'm higher on the pricing of "Men" as Taraji P. Henson pulls a Reverse Gibson and my feeling that females and African-American moviegoers turn out.


For now, it's anchoring my lineup along with a grab bag of other titles for a rare inclusion of six flicks. Here's how I have the selected features performing:


"The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" - $48.6 million
"What Men Want" - $26.4 million
"Cold Pursuit" - $12.8 million
"The Prodigy" - $6.1 million
"The Upside" - $5.8 million
"Glass" - $4.9 million
"Green Book" - $3.3 million
"Miss Bala" - $3.2 million
"Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" - $3.1 million
"Aquaman" - $3 million
"A Dog's Way Home" - $2.5 million
"The Kid Who Would Be King" - $2.3 million
"Escape Room" - $1.8 million
"Bohemian Rhapsody" - $1.3 million
"Mary Poppins Returns" - $1.2 million


And that said lineup of variety is "What Men Want" 2x along with "Cold Pursuit", "Green Book", "Escape Room", "Bohemian Rhapsody" 2x, and "Mary Poppins Returns". What say you?
