This holiday weekend will see three new films. Mother’s Day should lead the pack of new releases* followed by Key and Peeles first staring role film Keanu. Ratchet & Clank should have a decent showing due to it’s establishment as a game franchise on zero marketing. The winner of the weekend will remain Disney’s The Jungle Book until it is ousted next weekend by Disney’s Captain America: Civil War which is now projecting over $200m in its opening. The Huntsman, Batman v Superman, and Criminal should continue to take heavy viewership losses.

The Jungle Book  should continue hauling in ticket sales this weekend after blowing box office predictions out of the water by posting an opening over $100m and feeble newcomers in The Huntsman: Winter’s War (the only film being released in over 1,000+ theaters), Elvis & Nixon and A Hologram for the King premiering this Friday. Barbershop: The Next Cut and My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 should continue to see healthy declines while The Boss, Batman v Superman and Criminal get smashed from theaters.

The Jungle Book  $60,000,000   -42% $ 61,538,821  -40.4%

Glowing reviews and a strong international box office should support a healthy open for The Jungle Book. Barbershop: The Next Cut should also see a great opening on par with Barbershop ($20m) and Barbershop 2 ($24m). Zootopia should continue to bank some money but may be cannibalized by The Jungle Book. Batman v Superman will continue to see massive splittings in viewership until pulled after Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is released on May 6th. Criminal will probably be hurt by negative previews making it the weakest new release while The Boss will probably be the strongest holdover from last week due to power of Melissa McCarthy.

The Jungle Book  $75,200,000  — $103,261,464  —

We expect to see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice massively drop again as it goes against the new releases of The Boss and Hardcore Henry. Melissa McCarthy has shown she can bring in the money with her films The Heat ($39m) and Spy ($29m). BvS will also lose ground to the typically resilient Disney product Zootopia. Deadpool, Cloverfield, and Divergent will probably hang around eating scraps until Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is released on May 6th.

Film Title Approx. Weekend Gross Approx. % Change Actual % Change Actual $ Change
The Boss  $30,000,000  —  — $23,586,645
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice $20,500,000  -60%  -54.5%  $23,363,079
Zootopia $13,700,000  -29%  -25.8% $14,345,422
