James Cameron‘s ‘Avatar’ follow up has actually ruled supreme at the ticket office for weeks now — however a new flick may be preparing to take it down … with Dave Bautista at the helm.
We’re speaking about M. Night Shyamalan‘s sci-fi thriller “Knock at the Cabin,” which simply struck theaters. The movie’s gotten combined evaluations, however it appears the movie-going crowd aspires to see it … up until now, it’s made $5.4 mil and is on track to make about $14.5 mil through Sunday.
While lower than what early forecasts had it pegged at — in between $15M-$20M over the weekend — that figure is still strong enough to knock off ‘The Way of Water’ … which has actually been #1 for over a month now. The follow up has actually been travelling, without much competitors.
Box workplace price quotes have ‘Avatar 2’ being available in at around $10 million … which, if it applies, would really drop it down to #3, below yet another new movie that’s doing rather alright.
That would be the Jane Fonda-led ’80 for Brady,’ which is anticipated to bring around $13 million this weekend … not too far behind Shyamalan’s highly-anticipated mind-twister.
This one’s about a group of older ladies who travel to Foxborough to capture their preferred Patriots QB in action. It’s an initial funny … and thinking about those are kinda tanking nowadays in ticket sales, it’s a good surprise to see the strong proving — particularly considering that this is targeted towards a more senior-leaning audience.
In either case, it appears like ‘Avatar’s’ time on top is coming to an end — however it’s not like Cameron and co. are grumbling. The smash hit has actually made more cash than anybody might’ve wished for … now sitting as the fourth highest-grossing movie of perpetuity.
Something informs us they can manage to let somebody else be king for a little while now. At least till part 3 comes out, that is.
