Projected Top 10 At The Box Office This Weekend

Box Office Insider By Jim Amos | Box Office Insider May 2, 2014 at 4:00PM

It's basically The Haves vs. The Have-Not's this weekend as "Amazing Spider-Man 2" is as safe as bet as there is to rule the box office, as is runner-up "The Other Woman". The interesting battle will again be between "Captain America: Winter Soldier" and "Heaven Is For Real" and this week we'll toss "Rio 2" into that mix.

Amazing Spidey 2


All hail "Amazing Spider-Man 2".  The latest Spidey installment will own the box office this weekend and "The Other Woman" is a certain lock on the #2 slot.  But as was the case last week the battle will be for the  # 3,4 & 5 positions.  Let's lock "Captain America: Winter Soldier", "Heaven Is For Real" and "Rio 2" in a steel cage and see who emerges victorious.  Check back here for Saturday and Sunday morning estimates.





PROJECTED BOX OFFICE TOP 10

THE HAVES
1.  AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2   $93.0M  I've come down on my initial $102M estimate but still, that's not chump change.
2.  THE OTHER WOMAN   $14.5M  DOWN 41%    A drop of 41% is expected, unless women try to get away from NBA and NHL playoffs and the Derby.
3.  HEAVEN IS FOR REAL   $9.5M   DOWN 31%   I'm not saying that ASM2 fans are all heathens but this is the film that looks to be the least impacted by Spidey.  
4.  CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER   $8.3M   DOWN 47%   You don't have to be in the industry for 29 years to have a hunch that one superhero movie opening will impact the other.
     RIO 2   $8.3M   DOWN 39%   Kentucky won't be the only place that could call for a photo finish this weekend.

THE HAVE-NOT'S
6.  BRICK MANSIONS  $3.6M  DOWN 62%   These types of films usually fall like a, uhhh, brick on their second week.
7.  BEARS   $2.6  DOWN 26%   There's always room for cute and cuddly in the top ten.
8.  DIVERGENT   $2.3M   DOWN 35%   This film has an audience of its own and it just keeps hanging there, largely due to repeat business.
9.  TRANSCENDENCE   $1.6M   DOWN 60%   The less said about this film the better, I think
10. THE QUIET ONES   $1.4M   DOWN 65%  See above quote for "Brick Mansions"
