The Fate of the Furious will finish first, Unforgettable will be far behind in slot number two.
The Fate of the Furious sped it’s way to a massive $100 million opening last weekend. With no major competition coming for it’s title this weekend, expect Dom and his crew to sit comfortable at number one. Unforgettable will debut at number two, but it will be far behind as domestic thrillers don’t really take down mammoth car race action films. Here’s what to expect this weekend at the box office:
1st place will be: The Fate of the Furious. The latest installment of the Fast and the Furious series followed Beauty and the Beast and Logan to become the third highest debut so far this year with $100 million. Charlize Theron joins the likes of Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Kurt Russell, 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: Unforgettable. It’s that time of year again for a good domestic thriller. This time around, Katherine Heigl plays a jealous ex-wife of husband Geoff Stults who has a new love interest played by Rosario Dawson. Slowly, Heigl’s friendship turns deadly as she plays a game of cat-and-mouse to get her husband back.
3rd place will be: The Promise. The gorgeous romantic drama stars Michael (Oscar Isaac) and Ana (Charlotte LeBon) as Armenian lovers during a war torn Ottoman Empire. Christian Bale costars as Ana’s boyfriend, a photographer who threatens to expose the truth.
4th place will be: The Boss Baby. Disney’s comedy has raked in $116 million in three weeks. The animated film 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.
5th place will be: Beauty and the Beast. Bringing in $454 million in one month, the beastly hit is coming for an all time top ten list. 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.
Rounding out the top ten should find: in 6th place: Disney’s Born in China, in 7th place: Free Fire (Brie Larson), in 8th place: Phoenix Forgotten (Florence Hartigan), in 9th place: Smurfs: Lost Village, and in 10th place: Going in Style (Morgan Freeman).
