Long Range Forecast: 'Now You See Me' & 'The Purge'

Featured Stories - on April 06, 2013 by BOXOFFICE Staff

may31.pngThe calm after the storm of Memorial Day weekend sets in on Friday, May 31. Currently scheduled to open on that day are Now You See Me and The Purge.

Now You See Me


- The large ensemble cast with recognizable names and faces like Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Jesse Eisenberg, and Mark Ruffalo.
- Early online buzz has been decent. 


- Opening after Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hangover Part III, Fast & Furious 6 and before June 7's After Earth won't do it any favors.
- With rare exception, the weekend after Memorial Day isn't typically known for break-outs.

The Purge


- Ethan Hawke recently helped Sinister turn into a solid box office hit.
- There isn't much in the way of thrillers opening early on during the summer. 


- Opening in between a number of blockbusters could easily result in this smaller profile thriller getting lost in the shuffle.
- With rare exception, the weekend after Memorial Day isn't typically known for break-outs. 

Notable changes on our forecast this week include 42, Scary Movie 5, and Oblivion.

Check out our predictions for these and other upcoming films in the table below.
