BOX OFFICE FORECAST
Written by KingCnote on April 21, 2022
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is projected to repeat as box office champion with another $20 million haul this weekend. All three new releases earned rave reviews.
The animated family film, The Bad Guys, could surprise and take the title. It’s predicted to make close to $20 million in its debut. Sam Rockwell, Awkwafina, Craig Robinson and Marc Maron voice the heist comedy aimed at kids.
Two other films will struggle to reach $10 million in revenue. Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Anya Taylor-Joy and Ethan Hawke star in The Northman. The drama follows a warrior seeking to avenge his father’s death.
Also, Nicolas Cage stars in the comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent playing a fictionalized version of himself. Pre-release tracking numbers reveal it might earn only $7 million. (Variety)
