Will IT Chapter Two Scare Hustlers Away from the Top of the Box Office?
Chapter II of TI opened its doors last weekend and gave the box office much needed shot in the arm with a $ 91 million take. Pennywise and The Losers Club are expected to collect another big amount of money the second week, but STX is also about to arrive, too, the very lively Hustlers that could well represent major competition. At the same time, Warner Bros. publishes what is (or at least was) clear hope for the season of rewards with The Goldfinch .
Despite the competition, . The second chapter should still earn between 40 and 45 million dollars. The sequel has not received the same level of critical praise as its predecessor and it has not yet equaled the same heights at the box office so far. Nevertheless, the adaptation of Stephen King, directed by Andy Muschietti, has already crossed the 200 million mark and, with its recovery of the weekend, will nevertheless remain a huge success.
Next step: . Hustlers . Despite his second place, STX will need to win. The studio underwent a series of flops, such as Uglydolls and Poms this year alone. The series Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu will not face the same fate. The film, based on a group of strippers and based on real events, received many accolades at the Toronto International Film Festival (with 90% success on rotten tomatoes). According to estimates, this praise will begin at between $ 20 million and $ 26 million. It's a win for director Lorene Scafaria and money in bank for STX.
Chapter Two of Computer Science was almost divided into two films
On the other side of the coin, we have the Goldfinch . The famous novel of the same name was positioned by Warner Bros. Directed by John Crowley and benefiting from a cast directed by Ansel Elgort and Nicole Kidman, the film has been brutalized by critics until now. At the time of writing these lines, the rate of approval of the 25% of rotten tomatoes is very poor. It should bring in between $ 7 and $ 12 million, but we expected it to be short on these forecasts. Given the $ 40 million production budget, it's a difficult start, it's the least we can say.
To complete the top five, we must remember some delays in the form of Angel Has Fallen and Good Boys . Both films have been successful at Lionsgate and Universe, respectively, and are expected to yield an additional $ 3 to $ 4 million.
