Box Office Predictions: September 6-8

The only new nationwide release this weekend is “Riddick,” the third in the franchise. It’s been nine years since the last Riddick movie, so I wonder how many will be making it to the theatre to see this one this weekend. “Pitch Black” has gone on to become a bit of a cult classic, but I don’t think that’s the case with the first sequel. I learn this one is a lot more like “Pitch Black” than the sequel. “Pitch Black” opened to $11.577 million, while “Chronicles of Riddick” opened to $24.29 million. Movies similar to this open to $14.295 million. Nine years is way too much time between sequels, but I think this could win the weekend and do a solid $26.16 million.

Here’s how I see the Top 10:
1. “Riddick”: $26.16m
2. “Lee Daniels’ The Butler”: 12.6m
3. “We’re the Millers“: $10.2m
4. “One Direction: This is Us”: $6.7m
5. “Instructions Not Included”: $6.3m
6. “Elysium”: $5.5m
7. “Planes”: $5.2m
8. “This is the End“: $3.76m
9. “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”: $3.3m
10. “The World’s End”: $3m
