Weekend Boxoffice #38
Multiplexes should be very busy this weekend, with the well-reviewed RATATOUILLE and LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD both opening wide, and SICKO expanding.
RATATOUILLE (3940 theaters). With July 4 falling on a Wednesday, it's an odd weekend. Still, the kids are out of school and looking for something to see, and this feels like one of those films that will lure adults as well. Call it $59.7 million in its first 3 days.
LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD (3408 theaters). The exact kind of mindless hero action that people want to see. $40.4 million.
EVENING (977 theaters). Great cast, somewhat underwhelming reviews for a film that needed to be praised to the skies. Will do a little, but not much. $4.6 million.
SICKO (441 theaters). Getting great buzz, with many calling it Michael Moore's best. $8.1 million.
Predictions? What are y'all going to see this weekend?
