Box-Office Predictions: Will Twilight’s spot be topped?
For two weeks, Breaking Dawn Part 1 has remained in the top number one spot despite a massive negative reception and the affects it had on two viewers who had epilepsy from the final act. Could this be the time where its crown will be passed on to another victor? Well, the week after Thanksgiving is normally a steady one, but this week’s offering of independant films may add to it.
Last week was a mighty fight as three family films tried to take on the vampire flick, but failed to do so aside from some sucessful debuts. According to Box-Office Mojo, it predicts that Breaking Dawn and The Muppets will most likey cling on to their respected spots (Muppets debuted at #2). However, two situations exist as the number theaters playing Hugo and The Descendants are expanding signficantly. Hugo has grown to about 1,840 theaters while Descendants is close to a nearly wide release. Despite this, they probably won’t have a chance againts a film for the tweens and Muppet fans.
Also making its way to the big screen is Steve McQueen’s sex addiction drama Shame which has been well-recieved by critics, but was tagged with an NC-17 due to its sexually explict nature. An element that will limited the amount of theaters playing and the amount of advertising that be presented. However, the true battle will begin with the seas of December rolls in next week with some interesting titles.
