Expect the Fate of the Furious to leave every other movie in the dust… again!
The Fate of the Furious has raced to the number one spot the last two weeks. With new films The Circle and How to be a Latin Lover opening this weekend, something tells us that nothing can stop Dom and his Crew from sitting comfortably in number one. But, they shouldn’t get too used to it, because next weekend Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will undoubtedly knock it out of the top slot. Here’s a look at what we predict for this weekend’s box office race:
1st place will be: The Fate of the Furious. The eighth installment brought in $163 million in two weeks. The mega popular franchise has now grossed over $3 billion worldwide. Charlize Theron joins the likes of Vin Diesel, Kurt Russell, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez in the film that finds Dom (Diesel) being seduced to an underworld of terrorism that poses as the biggest threat the crew has been a part of.
2nd place will be: The Circle. The new thriller has an A-list cast starring Tom Hanks and Emma Watson, who scored a mega hit earlier in the year with Beauty and the Beast. Watson stars as a woman who lands her dream job at a powerful tech company called The Circle. She soon discovers a nefarious agenda that will affect the lives of humanity.
3rd place will be: The Boss Baby. Disney’s animated comedy stars the voice of Alec Baldwin as a baby who dresses up in a suit to fight a bad CEO who is ruining Puppy Co. He teams up with his seven year old brother (Miles Christopher Bakshi) to take the evil empire down. The animated film also features the voices of Lisa Kudrow, Tobey Maguire, Jimmy Kimmel, and Steven Buscemi.
4th place will be: Beauty and the Beast. The blockbuster has grossed $474 million and is now in the top ten money making films of all time. The live-action musical features Emma Watson (Harry Potter) as Belle and Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as the Beast. Featuring the original songs and new music, the epic fairy tale played in 3-D and IMAX, appeasing a wide demographic of fans old and new for this tale as old as time, becoming 2017’s biggest hit so far.
5th place will be: Born in China. Disney’s latest documentary features the landscapes of China, following a panda bear with her growing cub, a monkey who feels displaced by his baby sister, and a mother snow leopard struggling to raise two cubs. The film is narrated by John Krasinski and is directed by Chuan Lu.
Rounding out the top ten should find: in 6th place: How to be a Latin Lover (Salma Hayek), in 7th place: Going in Style (Morgan Freeman), in 8th place: Smurfs: The Lost Village, in 9th place: Unforgettable (Katherine Heigl), and in 10th place: Sleight (Jacob Latimore).
