Film Forecast Friday: August 17th

On Friday August 17th we have…

Alpha

Mile 22

We The Animals

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

Liv’s Prediction:

August 17th is a big date for movie releases with approximately 15 films but let’s discuss just a few of the ones that are opening and how they’ll do at the box office.

First up, we have the new Kodi Smit-McPhee epic Alpha. This seems to be one of the biggest films opening this weekend so I do expect this one to do quite well. I don’t foresee it making as much as The Meg did last weekend, but that was also completely unexpected so Alpha may surprise us all.

Mile 22 starring Mark Wahlberg is also hitting theatres this weekend and what I can expect from this one is about the same turnout as Mission: Impossible- Fallout. Opening weekend it made around 60 million but because it was a franchise, we expected a large sum of money. Mile 22 is an action feature and not a franchise, but it also has Mark Wahlberg headlining so, who knows.

Next, we have new Netflix chick flick To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before which I expect to have numerous people opening their apps or running home to watch it. In this case, the viewership on this film will not disappoint.

Lastly, we have We the Animals. It is an indie drama and most likely will not do numbers at the box office on its opening weekend, but I do believe it will make the people who do watch it fall in love and spread good reviews like wildfire. This will ultimately bring more audience members and will gain success over time.
