Box Office Predictions (06-08th Sep) Results

And the results are in, Riddick took the weekend! With modest results, but a win is a win. I saw Riddick and my review is the post before this one and I wasn’t too bothered by it, fun film but nothing really special. And nothing else happened. Go watch some movies!


New Films




Whilst a total of $18M this weekend from a Vin Diesel powered films seems low, so was the budget so it still will end up with a healthy profit. That does require the film to do well internationally and that it don’t drop anything below 50% next weekend.

My Prediction

  1. Riddick:   -$26M
  2. The Butler:   -$11M
  3. We’re the Millers:   -$9M
  4. Instructions Not Included:   -$9M
  5. One Direction:   -$4M

Actual Results

  1. Riddick:   -$18.6M (-7.4M)
  2. The Butler:   -$8.9M (-2.1M)
  3. Instructions Not Included:   -$8.1M (-0.8M)
  4. We’re the Millers:   -$7.9M (-1.1M)
  5. Planes:   -$4.2M (N/A)


Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this weekend and its new releases?

    Riddick was a surprise. It ought to do well on in the international markets, though.

    I don’t think Instructions Not Included is even playing in my area, good prediction. If it played in more theaters it could easily rake in some more dough.

    So I guess people do love these Riddick films eh? 😀

    I’m a bit surprised Riddick didn’t get over $20 million. Nice post.


  5. Gene says :

    The Butler keeps chugging along. My guess is Riddick will slip below that and it will stay at No. 2 after this weekend and The Family and Insidious have poor showings.

    I’m glad that movie about the young boys didn’t make it into the top five…
