BOX OFFICE FORECAST
Written by KingCnote on July 20, 2022
This week’s only new release is projected to top the weekend box office.
The third Jordan Peele film, NOPE, is projected to make $50 million.
This R-rated horror mystery arrives Thursday afternoon for previews on 3700 screens. If it under performs, do not blame the positive critical reviews, nor strong word-of-mouth. Blame the 2-hour and 15-minute runtime. (Deadline)
NOPE is an ideal escape into an air-conditioned movie theater. Folks with central air may opt to stay on the couch this Friday and Netflix the Ryan Gosling – Chris Evans spy thriller, The Gray Man.
