There’s plenty to choose from at the box office this weekend, with “Spy,” “Insidious Chapter 3,” and “Entourage,” all in theatres now. “Entourage” started the weekend early with a surprisingly strong Wednesday debut, but if any movie is going to kick the Rock’s but this weekend, it’s going to be Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig’s latest comedy, “Spy.”
Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig team-up once again with the comedy “Spy,” which should easily win the weekend with around $35 million. This would be huge for McCarthy, who is coming of a rare misstep with last year’s “Tammy.” And with a surprising 94 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes,. and with stars like McCarthy and Jason Statham in the cast, “Spy” should satisfy both comedy and action fans.
The low-budget “Insidious” didn’t have a huge box office debut back in 2011, but it did become a sleeper horror hit, spawning a more successful 2013 sequel. Even though the new film is billed as Chapter 3, it’s actually a prequel, and what’s worse, it’s missing its stars, Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson. Something that will hurt its box office numbers. Look for “Insidious Chapter 3” to land in third place in the $20 million ballpark.
The boys from “Entourage”are back, and they opened to a better-than-expected $5.4 million on Wednesday (including Tuesday previews). But its been a while since the tv show went off the air, and if you didn’t watch the series you’re probably not gonna go see this movie. Add to that mediocre reviews, and this film is likely to make about $15 to $17 million this weekend,
I never watched the tv show, and the only reason I might consider seeing is “Entourage” is because of her:
