The Fate of the Furious will speed to the top, and Beauty and the Beast is coming for an all-time top ten!
Beauty and the Beast shattered 2017’s opening weekend box office record and hasn’t slowed down since. The film is getting closer to the all-time domestic top ten list. The Fate of the Furious is eyeing a $400 million global debut, making it a serious threat to Beast’s numbers. The rest of the top ten will look similar to last week’s, as Dom and the crew have their own weekend to speed their way to number one. Here’s a look at 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 will undoubtedly race to the finish line in first place, and will break box office records along the way. The franchise has grossed over $3 billion globally, and studio predictions are eyeing a $400 million debut worldwide. Charlize Theron joins the likes of Vin Diesel, 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: The Boss Baby. Disney’s comedy has grossed $89 million in two weeks and will continue it’s success. 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.
3rd place will be: Beauty and the Beast. Already 2017’s biggest hit by a landslide, the film will continue to rise to (possibly) 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.
4th place will be: Smurfs: The Lost Village. For the third installment of the Smurfs, the film is fully animated versus mixing real life like the first two. The Smurfs are voiced by Demi Lovato, Rainn Wilson, Joe Manganiello, and Michelle Rodriguez. A mysterious map sets the Smurfs on a journey to the Forbidden Forest to discover a secret, bigger than any other in Smurf history.
5th place will be: Going in Style. The comedy-drama is based off a 1979 short story by Edward Cannon. Morgan Freeman, Joey King, and Ann-Margaret star as three lifelong friends who risk everything to kick off every bank that absconded their money in a desperate attempt to pay their bills. The film is directed by actor Zach Braff.
Rounding out the top ten should find: in 6th place: Ghost in the Shell (Scarlett Johannsson), in 7th place: Power Rangers (Bryan Cranston), in 8th place: Kong: Skull Island (Brie Larson), in 9th place: Logan (Hugh Jackman) with $4.2 million, and in 10th place: Get Out (Daniel Kaluuya).
