Box-Office Picks for Movies Hitting the Theaters this Weekend

On the 26th of January, 2017, Screen Rant published the latest week’s box office prediction. This is published by Screen Rant every week to help the audience decide on what to watch for the upcoming weekend. Their prediction for this weekend includes Split in the number one position, A Dog’s Purpose in the number two position, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in the third position, Hidden Figures in the fourth position and La La Land in the fifth position. After looking at the comparison of Screen Rant’s predictions last week to the actual scenario, I was impressed at how the predictions were almost entirely precise. Four out five predictions came true, so choosing which movies to watch this weekend based on their predictions is quite worth it.

Screen Rant’s Top Box Office Pick – Split

Screen Rant appears to be loving the movie, Split topping it again on the list for the second consecutive week. They had published a full box office wrap-up coverage of Split’s inaugural weekend at the very beginning of this week. The opening weekend had accumulated a massive $40 million. This movie is ideal for enthusiasts of the thriller/horror genre as almost all of the audience was awe-struck by the twisted ending delivered brilliantly by M. Night Shyamalan. This movie is expected to be one of the most hyped movies as it has already received countless positive reviews.

Screen Rant’s Number 2 Box Office Pick – A Dog’s Purpose

A Dog’s Surprise is expected to be a favorite for animal lovers since the story revolves around the magical effect pets have on the lives of their owners. In the story, the dog is shown to be reincarnated many times while contributing positively to the lives of all of its owners at every one of its birth. The movie has, however, received some negative reviews for showing the main character, the dog in a rather manipulated situation.

Screen Rant’s Third Box Office Pick – Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

The final part of the Resident Evil franchise is not expected to perform as highly as its previous installments. This is because of a few preliminary negative reviews accompanied by some noteworthy Oscar-deserving competitors. It is still expected that the movie will receive much love from its loyal fan base, predicted to hit its opening weekend at a disappointing $15.5 million. Overall it is expected to perform the lowest at the box office compared to any of the parts of the Resident Evil series.
