MEGAMIND LIKELY TO PREVAIL AT BOX OFFICE

November 12, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Box office forecasters are predicting that last week’s top film, DreamWorks Animation’s Megamind will outsell three rivals that are rolling out in wide release this weekend. The challengers are 20th Century Fox’s Unstoppable, Paramount’s Morning Glory, and Universal’s Skyline. Of the three, Unstoppable, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine and directed by Tony Scott, appears to have the best chance of overtaking Megamind. While Megamind is expected to earn $25-30 million in its second week, Unstoppable is expected to come in at around $20-25 million. That’s also the expected take for the second week of Todd Phillips’s Due Date. Morning Glory, which stars Harrison Ford, Rachel McAdams and Diane Keaton, and which opened on Wednesday, is likely to earn around $10-15 million, according to forecasts. The big question mark is Skyline, which was not shown in advance to critics, always a bad sign. The extraterrestrial invasion flick, with no-name stars, may earn around $10 million — which wouldn’t be all that bad, given the fact that it reportedly cost around $10 million to produce.
