LOS ANGELES:

Arab Times - - FEATURES -

“The Preda­tor” has found its next feast: its box of­fice com­peti­tors.

The Fox re­lease is in­vad­ing North Amer­i­can mul­ti­plexes with an es­ti­mated $25 mil­lion open­ing week­end at 4,307 sites, early es­ti­mates showed Fri­day.

The alien fran­chise film is com­ing in at the lower end of ex­pec­ta­tions, which had ranged from $25 mil­lion to $32 mil­lion. “The Preda­tor” should be able to top the sec­ond week­end of Warner Bros’ su­per­nat­u­ral hor­ror hit “The Nun”, which is pro­jected to fin­ish at about $20 mil­lion for a 63% de­cline.

Lion­s­gate’s open­ing of mys­tery-com­edy “A Sim­ple Fa­vor” is head­ing for a sold third place with $18 mil­lion at 3,102 sites, com­ing in well above forecasts in the $12 mil­lion to $15 mil­lion range. Sony-Stu­dio 8 crime drama “White Boy Rick” is also pro­jected to top re­cent forecasts at about $10 mil­lion from 2,500 screens, bat­tling for fourth place with the fifth frame of rom-com hit “Crazy Rich Asians” and the sec­ond week­end of Jennifer Garner’s thriller “Pep­per­mint”.
