‘Fantastic Beasts’ Will Probably Have A Big Box Office Debut


“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is about to hit theaters this weekend, and the box office predictions for the “Harry Potter” spinoff are all over the place. All predictions are very high, with some trackers saying the film will debut north of 80 million dollars. Others say its three-day opening could earn more than 90 million dollars. Apparently Warner Bros. just wants the movie to land about 70 million. The new film, written by J.K. Rowling, already has an 89 percent on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.

  • ‘Moana’ Could Surpass ‘Frozen’ In Second Weekend At Box Office

    Disney’s “Moana” is poised to reclaim the box office title in its second weekend of release — but it will have to show serious legs to challenge all-time animated champ “Frozen.” “Moana” is on pace to earn at least $25 million this weekend, a roughly 60 percent drop from its $56 million haul for the three-day post-Thanksgiving weekend. “Frozen,” which also opened at Thanksgiving in 2013, earned $31.6 million in its second weekend. Unlike “Frozen,” which opened against the second “Hunger Games” movie, “Moana” faces little competition — though Warner Bros.’ “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is expected to finish at No. 2 in its third weekend.

Released by BH Tilt, a unit of Blumhouse, “Incarnate” will debut in 1,737 locations on Friday, targeting diehard genre fans. var googletag = googletag || {}; googletag.cmd = googletag.cmd || []; googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.defineOutOfPageSlot('/30981161/TheWrapRemnantOOP', 'div-gpt-ad-1470167200293-0').addService(googletag.pubads()); googletag.pubads().enableSingleRequest(); googletag.enableServices(); }); googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1470167200293-0'); }); Despite having little chance of opening in the top five, “Incarnate” the film’s expected $4 million to $5 million opening figures are on target to make it a successful debut. It was produced for less than $5 million and is zeroing in on a low-budget digital marketing campaign. Given the lack of competition, this should be the first weekend in a long while that the top five highest-grossing movies remains unchanged from the previous weekend.
