Weekend Forecast: 'Love the Coopers', 'The 33', & 'My All American'

Featured Stories - on November 11, 2015 by BoxOffice Staff

nov13pred.pngThree new wide releases open for the second weekend of November, but none are likely to challenge Spectre and The Peanuts Movie.

Love the Coopers

PROS:

- The ensemble cast of well-known and respected actors gives it an advantage over the weekend's other releases.
- Twitter activity is generally on par with that of This Is Where I Leave You, an encouraging sign for a relatively low profile flick.

CONS:

- Christmas- and holiday-themed comedies haven't fared well at the box office in recent years.
- Facebook activity is trailing that of This Is Where I Leave You.

The 33

PROS:

- Antonio Banderas' presence could give the film some drawing power among older Hispanic audiences.
- Facebook activity is much stronger than that of No Escape, although that's not saying much.

CONS:

- Audience interest in a dramatic retelling of the real-life mining incident seems pretty low.
- Twitter activity is considerably behind that of No Escape.

My All American

PROS:

- Faith-based films have found great success at the box office over the past few years.
- Leading man Aaron Eckhart gives the pic some commercial flavor.

CONS:

- Social media activity is generally muted in advance of release.
- Opening in between busy weeks at the box office probably won't help matters for this or any other new release.

Top 10 Forecast

BoxOffice projects this weekend's top ten films will tally around $97 million. That would mark a 23 percent slip from the same frame last year, whose top ten earned a combined $125.7 million as Dumb and Dumber To debuted with $36.1 million.
