Box Office Estimates for September 6-8
Welcome to the fall season on FML as we have a glaringly obvious daily price this weekend. "It Chapter Two" is the only new release and for good reason as the horror sequel hopes to make nine figures while the rest of the slate consists of summer holdovers that won't approach double digits.
Todd from www.toddmthatcher.com here bringing you my take on the weekend ahead. To our summer players who excelled over the sequel and franchise filled weekends... congrats! We now turn our attention to leaves and football and Pennywise and the Losers Club. My overall $109.7 million forecast for "Chapter Two" puts it roughly $14 million behind what its record breaking September 2017 predecessor accomplished. The question for everybody is what combination of days to lead your screen with. My summer holdover projections (with "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" having my smallest dip and nabbing BP) means Saturday is alright for clowning around for me.
Here's how I have the selected features performing:
"It Chapter Two" (Friday) - $46.2 million
"It Chapter Two" (Saturday) - $40.4 million
"It Chapter Two" (Sunday) - $23.1 million
"Angel Has Fallen" - $5.9 million
"Good Boys" - $4.9 million
"The Lion King" - $3.8 million
"Hobbs & Shaw" - $3 million
"Ready or Not" - $2.9 million
"Overcomer" - $2.9 million
"Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" - $2.5 million
"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" - $2.5 million
"Dora and the Lost City of Gold" - $2.3 million
"The Angry Birds Movie 2" - $2.2 million
"Spider-Man: Far From Home" - $2.1 million
"The Peanut Butter Falcon" - $2 million
And that leaves me with a double dose of Saturday "It" along with "Angel" and "Hollywood" 5x. What say you?
