The Cinematic Katzenjammer: Box Office Talk: November 9


Box Office Talk: November 9

Excellent debuts last weekend from both Wreck-It Ralph and Flight. Each movie received very good Cinemascores, meaning all the positive word of mouth should keep each film from large drops this coming weekend.
This coming weekend there’s only one new release, and it’s a biggie! James Bond makes his 23rd official appearance in film, in what some are calling the best James Bond film in the series. Daniel Craig returns as the iconic Bond for the 3rd time, and joining him are Dame Judi Dench (making her 7th appearance) as M. Javier Bardem takes on the role as Bond’s foil Silva, in the Sam Mendes directed Skyfall. For those that care, Grammy winning singer Adele sings the opening theme. As of 11/7/2012 the film has already grossed over $321 million worldwide, so expect the film to open very well in the states. I think Skyfall goes on set the record for highest opening and highest grossing Bond film in the series. Happy Golden Anniversary Mr. Bond! Here’s your martini, shaken and not stirred.

Here’s how I foresee the rest of the weekend Top 10:

Box Office Predictions

2Wreck-It Ralph$36,800,000
5Taken 2$3,800,000
6The Man with
the Iron Fists
7Cloud Atlas$3,200,000
8Paranormal Activity 4$2,300,000
9Here Comes
the Boom
10Hotel Transylvania$2,300,000
How do you think Skyfall does this weekend? Will you be going out to see it? If so, are you interested in seeing it in IMAX? Is there anything else you might see? If so which movie(s)?
