Traditionally, blockbuster movies begin to arrive in theaters right about now. However, nationwide, only two-thirds of the megaplexes are open for business. Studios are holding back their biggest flicks.
This weekend, four films will be released. Chris Rock stars with Samuel L. Jackson in a spin-off from the Saw franchise called Spiral. Max Minghella and Marisol Nichols also star in the latest Jigsaw nightmare, which could make this weekend as much as $13 million.
Angelina Jolie plays a fire warden trapped in a wildfire in the movie Those Who Wish Me Dead. Critics have given it positive reviews, but revenue will be lucky to reach $5 million.
Two more smaller movies, Profile and Finding You, might make $2 million each. Profile is a gritty drama focused a journalist’s attempt to infiltrate ISIS. The rom-com Finding You is set in Ireland and features a pair of artists learning that the sum is greater than the parts. (Box Office Mojo)
