I certainly think Will will win. MEN IN BLACK 3 shouldn’t have a problem pulling in the lion’s share of audiences this weekend. Truthfully, I don’t believe Will Smith has lost any of his fan base. And the plot of “Agent J going back in time to save K from being assassinated in the past” is a pretty good one.
The Avengers made over $55 million this past weekend. Most likely it will make at least $20 million this weekend. But will MIB3 be able to make more than that? My guess is yes, probably $40 to $65 Million opening weekend sounds about right to me.
The only other movie that might scoop up a little ticket sales is Chernobyl Diaries. But I don’t think it will make a big splash. Then again, you never can tell about low budget horror movies. Their box office tends to surprise people. Look at that awful Devil Inside.
Still, The Avengers had a good run. I even plan on seeing it again before it leaves the theaters. Men in Black is a little out of my age group, but like most of the family comedies, I’ll try to see it, at least so I can review it. And I don’t mind supporting geek soul brother Will.
MEN IN BLACK 3 comes out this Friday, May 25. Make sure you have your special black glasses so you don’t forget.
