Insidious Chapter 2

1) Insidious: Chapter 2- 20.0M Weekend, 20.0M Total

The original opened to 13M, and eventually grossed 54M domestically. The sequel benefits from a painfully dead box office, solid word of mouth, and The Conjuring, which scared up good audiences in July. People may watch Insidious 2 without having seen the original. 20M for the weekend is likely.

2) The Family- 12M Weekend, 12M Total

Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfieffer star in a mob dramedy that is tracking soft, but is opening into an empty marketplace. The marketing push for this has been solid, with Luc Besson and Martin Scorsese on as producers, and Tommy Lee Jones in a supporting role. Adults should show up for this, just not in droves.

3) Riddick- 9M Weekend, 32M Total

Vin Diesel’s sequel should get cut in half (at least) this weekend.

4) The Butler- 6M Weekend, 99M Total

Another slight slide for The Butler leaves it within striking distance of 100M.

5) Instructions Not Included- 5M Weekend, 27M Total

The summer sleeper hit will slide a little, as it doesn’t benefit from another massive expansion this week.

6) We’re The Millers- 5M Weekend, 130M Total

The summer comedy hit will dip a little, but faces no new direct competition.

7) Planes- 2M Weekend, 82M Total

With no new kid entries, Planes will remain in the Top 10.

8) Elysium- 1.5M Weekend, 87M Total

Matt Damon’s pic chugs along.

9) Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters - 1.5M Weekend, 62M Total

Percy should remain in the Top 10.

10) Blue Jasmine- 1.5M Weekend, 27M Total

Blue Jasmine will likely keep itself in the top 10, over One Direction, which dropped a staggering 74% in week 2, and will drop another staggering box office in week 3 to about 1M.
