Box Office Estimates for January 24-26

Todd Thatcher

Whatcha gonna do when "Bad Boys for Life" had a Thursday preview number of over $6 million last weekend? Double up on it as your anchor play for the long holiday weekend. And for this upcoming frame, I'm in that mindset already.

Todd from here bringing you my take on the weekend ahead as two newcomers join the FML fray: the supernatural and long-delayed horror pic "The Turning" and Guy Ritchie's latest comedic crime caper "The Gentlemen".

Maybe I'm just scared to play anything starring Matthew McConaughey based on recent history, but I'm not as high on "The Gentlemen" as the FML pricers. In fact, I have it struggling to reach double digits and placing fifth.

As for "The Turning", I think it can manage a near teens premiere and that's enough to earn it a spot in the lineup. Yet it's all about Mr. Smith and Mr. Lawrence once again. Even if their threequel drops around 50% or maybe a little more, that's still enough for the double showing.

Here's how I have the 15 selected features performing:

"Bad Boys for Life" - $31.1 million
"1917" - $16.4 million
"Dolittle" - $12.4 million
"The Turning" - $12.2 million
"The Gentlemen" - $9.6 million
"Jumanji: The Next Level" - $6.7 million
"Little Women" - $4.6 million
"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" - $4.5 million
"Just Mercy" - $3.6 million
"Knives Out" - $3.1 million
"Frozen II" - $2.4 million
"Parasite" - $1.9 million
"Like a Boss" - $1.8 million
"Spies in Disguise:" - $1.5 million
"Underwater" - $1.5 million

And that gives me the "Boys" 2x along with "The Turning", "Knives Out" 2x, "Spies in Disguise", and "Underwater" 2x. What say you?
