Will Fincher & Co. be laughing all the way to the bank come this weekend?
With the movie about to open its time for all of us to make a final prediction regarding the box office. According to Box Office Mojo Zodiac
is opening to 2,362 screens which is well below Wild Hogs
- opening to 3,287 screens. The big disadvantage Zodiac has up against is its long running time, which means it will play fewer times than Wild Hogs and that fact that it is rated R limits its overall appeal. And in the world where movies such as Ghost Rider and Norbit dominate we can only hope that the cream rises to the top. Having said that I think Zodiac will be the number 2 movie on the weekend and that it will gross around $15 million. With the movies excellent reviews and word of mouth it could gross $70 millions overall and I'm predicting it to be a success overseas - like most of Fincher's previous work - so $80 million overseas. We'll know the details in a few days!
