300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE EXPECTED TO RISE TO THE TOP

March 7, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

The sequel to 2007’s surprise hit 300 is expected to lead the box office this weekend, although DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman is expected to give it some solid competition. Warner Bros.’ 300: Rise of an Empire is not expected to record anything like the $70.9 million that the original did, but it could wind up with $45-50 million and no one at Warner’s would complain about that result. Likely to play the runner-up this weekend will be DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman. It’s expected to collect around $40-45 million. Also opening in limited release — four theaters in L.A. and New York — will be Director Wes Anderson’s much praised The Grand Budapest Hotel. It’s expected to pack theaters in the two cities where it’s playing.
