2019 Box Office Predictions

by Lachlan_Saunders | created - 12 Jun 2016 | updated - 9 hours ago | Public

Should be an absolutely enormous year at the box office. Disney looks to take home at least eight of the top ten films of the year, including the entire top seven. Both the MCU and Star Wars will be reaching a finale so-to-speak, live-action Disney remakes will be hitting an all-time high in popularity and the usual sequel/spin-off fare will prove to pull in the big dollars. It looks as though Disney is putting all their chips into 2019; it's THE box office year they've been building to for over a decade now. Should be interesting to see how their box office reign continues into 2020; where they absolutely won't be able to continue their upward streak (without a 'Star Wars' or 'Avengers' or Pixar sequel). 2018 carryover films are at the bottom of the list.

1. Avengers: Endgame (2019)

182 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy | Post-production

After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more in order to undo Thanos' actions and restore order to the universe.

Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo | Stars: Brie Larson, Scarlett Johansson, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper

Prediction: Domestic: $735,000,000 Worldwide: $2,280,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $285,000,000 Opening (Worldwide): $750,000,000

Reception: IMDb: 8.4 Rotten Tomatoes: 83% Metacritic: 70/100

Should definitely be able to top the opening weekend record set by 'Infinity War'. Simply due to the cliffhanger ending of the previous film, this should have a substantially bigger first day and I imagine it'll set new records for both Saturday and Sunday grosses to boot; it also has a good chance of beating out 'Force Awakens' for the opening day record. Could go either way and be slightly leggier than 'Infinity War' due to a less crowded opening of the summer movie season. There's no 'Deadpool 2' to chip away at it's later weekend grosses and the next $100m+ opening most likely won't happen until 'Toy Story 4' a whole eight weeks later (even if 'Pokemon' manages to break out). On the other hand, it could make a lot of money very quickly and then fall into the background of the summer movie season similar to 'Age of Ultron'. The following onslaught of huge, guaranteed $100m+ openings in July of 'Spider-Man' and 'The Lion King' should cut this movie off from making anymore significant grosses, but by that point everyone would've seen this film at least twice. Should set a new record for worldwide opening with ease and if the film really manages to stick around, I could see it surpassing 'Avatar' to become the 2nd highest-grossing film domestically. As it stands, it looks very good to take the same rank for all-time worldwide gross as well. I very much doubt that this film could overtake the $2.8b worldwide gross of 'Avatar', but the overseas grosses should be insanely impressive, coming in only behind 'Avatar' and maybe 'Titanic'. The critical reception should be similar to 'Infinity War' (don't be surprised if some critics hate it, it is 182-minutes long after all), and I imagine audiences will love the film much in the same way as its predecessor. This is already the clear winner of the 2019 box office.

2. The Lion King (2019)

Animation, Adventure, Drama | Post-production

After the murder of his father, a young lion prince flees his kingdom only to learn the true meaning of responsibility and bravery.

Director: Jon Favreau | Stars: Seth Rogen, Keegan-Michael Key, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Donald Glover

Prediction: Domestic: $600,000,000 Worldwide: $1,750,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $192,000,000 Opening (Worldwide): $515,000,000

Reception: IMDb: 7.3 Rotten Tomatoes: 82% Metacritic: 67/100

I think we're looking at this year's 'Jurassic World'. A huge spectacle film and the modernization of a classic from the 90s. It opens only two weeks after 'Spider-Man', but I actually think that spells more trouble for the web-slinger's multiplier than it does for this films opening. This will most likely play in the same manner as 'Avatar'. Where the film succeeds off of the perceived cultural necessity to see it, the spectacle of it's visual effects achievements and outside of that; the curiosity of how the story adapts to another medium of film. I think it's very reasonable to assume that the film on it's own is of a $200m opening nature. Whether or not it does manage to do so will depend on the love that 'Spider-Man' receives. I don't think anyone would argue that this isn't Disney's biggest and most anticipated live-action adaptation yet. 'Beauty and the Beast' managed a whopping $175m opening and 'Jungle Book' $103m. I think the worst case scenario for this film is that it gets bad reviews and audiences opt for 'Spider-Man' resulting in an opening of around (a massive) $140m-$160m. The much more likely scenario however, is that this film is a moderate success with critics and a huge success with audiences, the film should have a substantial multiplier, with it's only post-release competition being 'Hobbs and Shaw' and 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'. These three films will all likely do very well throughout August, up until the release of 'It 2'. Worldwide I imagine this will do insanely well. 'Jungle Book' brought in over $600m internationally and 'Beast' pulled in $760m. I'm expecting far more significant grosses more on the level of the first 'Jurassic World'. Some predict that this film is looking at $2b worldwide, but I don't think that's quite in the cards yet, due to the huge international success that both 'Spider-Man' and 'Hobbs and Shaw' will experience during this same time. Reviews should be generally quite favorable, but much lower than Favreau's previous outing 'Jungle Book', due to the controversial nature of this remake. I imagine many critics will find the film pointless and lesser than the original, but the majority will praise the pioneering of VFX and I'm sure the film will be very serviceable and popular with audiences.

3. Star Wars: Episode IX (2019)

Action, Adventure, Fantasy | Post-production

The final chapter of the saga from a galaxy far, far away.

Director: J.J. Abrams | Stars: Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Keri Russell, Daisy Ridley

Prediction: Domestic: $710,000,000 Worldwide: $1,515,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $226,000,000 Opening (Worldwide): $465,000,000

Reception: IMDb: 7.6 Rotten Tomatoes: 92% Metacritic: 81/100

I don't think 'The Last Jedi' was as controversial with general audiences as the internet would have you believe. I also don't think that 'Solo' under-performing spells trouble for this film. The lower-than-usual grosses of 'Solo' were the result of poor marketing and the off-putting nature of the concept; also last summer was very busy and 'Solo' really wasn't high up on people's watchlist for the summer compared to 'Infinity War', 'Deadpool 2' and 'Incredibles 2'. This film has the most of a "must-see" factor that any film in the franchise has since 'Force Awakens'. Everyone who saw 'Last Jedi' will be back for this film despite the backlash that film received. Every fan will want to see how the Skywalker saga will end, the final appearance of Carrie Fisher and especially the return of Billy Dee Williams. I think that the fandom clamoring for a title reveal/trailer just proves that fans of 'Star Wars' will always be interested in 'Star Wars', especially the so-called final film in the saga. The actual threat to this film's grosses will be 'Frozen 2' releasing a month prior and 'Jumanji 2: Part 2?' a week before. I think this film will be a hit in the same manner as 'TFA' with all of the same noise and discussion as 'TLJ'. Either way, it'll make serious bank domestically. It's important to note that the original and prequel trilogies followed the same box office pattern of the first film being huge, the second film falling about 30% and the final film increasing by about 20-25%. I'm not expecting that much of an increase this time around from 'TLJ' due to the more significant holiday competition. But an increase is still pretty much guaranteed. International grosses should be much closer to 'TLJ' than 'TFA', but I would expect an increase over the previous film even if it inevitably fails in China again. 'Star Wars' is still probably the most widespread, popular franchise in America. Say what you will about the MCU, 'Star Wars' has much more of a multi-generational appeal. Critics will most likely love this film in the same manner as the previous two episodes, and audiences will love it despite some of the inevitable shouting of the "hardcore fanbase". I think most 'Star Wars' fans will be happy with the conclusion, J.J. has proved that he knows how to deliver the goods.

4. Frozen II (2019)

Animation, Adventure, Comedy | Filming

Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf are going far in the forest to learn the truth about an ancient mystery of their kingdom.

Directors: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee | Stars: Evan Rachel Wood, Kristen Bell, Sterling K. Brown, Jonathan Groff

Prediction: Domestic: $560,000,000 Worldwide: $1,440,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $170,000,000

Reception: IMDb: 7.2 Rotten Tomatoes: 90% Metacritic: 73/100

This is gonna be huge. The first film still holds the record for the highest-grossing animated film worldwide, so I think this one's a shoo-in to replace it. International grosses should be much in the same, and this should have a massive opening domestically. Probably won't dethrone the 'Incredibles 2' opening record due to the mere six year wait compared to the fourteen year wait for that film. However I think an opening in the range of 'Beauty and the Beast' is very achievable and the openings of the two animated films will be in a close-enough range of one another that it may tip over and achieve a new record. The only film that could possibly achieve a $100m+ opening before the release of this film would be 'It 2' a whole eleven weeks prior. I don't imagine the 'Terminator' film releasing in the first week of November will smash any records, and I wouldn't count on 'Joker' having either a $100m+ opening or the legs to stick around until the end of November from its early October release. So this film will experience very little competition for its opening and it should do very, VERY well throughout the holiday season alongside 'Star Wars'. Reviews should be very favorable similar to the last few Disney animated flicks and audiences will definitely love the film.

Reception: IMDb: 7.3 Rotten Tomatoes: 84% Metacritic: 72/100

Probably the toughest movie to call of 2019; both in terms of box office success and especially critical/audience reception. Going off of the last few long-awaited Pixar sequels we have a $183m opening from 'Incredibles 2', $135m from 'Finding Dory' and $110m from 'Toy Story 3'. We can see a trend of upward grosses in the release of these films. You'd think that a new 'Toy Story' installment, being Pixar's most beloved franchise would result in their biggest opening yet. However I seriously doubt that this film will carry the same level of anticipation or faith in its level of quality that 'Incredibles 2' experienced last summer. I imagine there will be a lot of doubt among audiences regarding whether or not this film will live up to the trilogy. 'Toy Story 3' provided closure for the series, and that film was VERY successful. The plot of this film also sounds very inessential, so it reads as "another one" rather than the triumphant return to the series. I personally find it really strange that the story of this film seems to be so small-scale despite this being an unlikely sequel of sorts that they kind of have to explain why it's happening seeing as how they found the perfect ending nine years ago. Despite this, the film will obviously make a lot of money. I would expect an opening right in between 'Incredibles 2' and 'Dory', with shorter legs than both of those films due to the response that this is certain to be a lesser 'Toy Story' movie and that both 'Spider-Man' and 'The Lion King' will be releasing in the following weeks. It will still be the highest-grossing film in the series. Critics should be mostly positive due to it simply being a Pixar movie. But when the lowest aggregated score for the series is a 98% Tomatometer for the third film, this is going to look substantially lower. I'm thinking it'll be closer to the reception of 'Monsters Uni' over 'Toy Story 3'. The majority of critics and audiences will be very positive.

7. Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Action, Adventure, Comedy | Post-production

Peter Parker and his friends go on summer vacation to Europe, where Peter finds himself trying to fight off a new foe, Mysterio, who as his name indicates may not be all that he appears.

Director: Jon Watts | Stars: Zendaya, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal

Prediction: Domestic: $410,000,000 Worldwide: $1,010,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $145,000,000 Opening (Worldwide): $335,000,000 Reception: IMDb: 7.4 Rotten Tomatoes: 89% Metacritic: 71/100

Following 'Engame', I imagine Spider-Man will be pushed to the forefront of the MCU as one of their main (if not their main) franchises, much in the same manner of 'Iron Man'. expect an increase in grosses similar to 'Guardians' and 'Ant-Man'. The trailer managed to pull in record views and between 'Spider-Man PS4', 'Spider-Verse' and Holland's own interpretation; the character is arguably more popular than ever. This film does face the very real problem of releasing only two weeks after 'Toy Story' and only two weeks before 'The Lion King'. Despite being sandwiched in between two of the biggest films of the year, this should be fine and may even be the silent achiever of the summer. The opening weekend should be very substantial as 'Homecoming' managed a $117m start. That film was very well-received among audiences and the character's popularity within the MCU has only increased after his major role in 'Infinity War'. We should see the usual sequel increase of MCU films here. If not for the tight release schedule of the summer, this film would probably have a shot at $500m domestic. Under the circumstances I wouldn't expect that at all, but the interest in this film is definitely on that level. 'Spider-Man' has always been a very popular character at the international box office as well. 'Homecoming' pulled in $545m internationally and I'd expect a substantial increase here; somewhere close to $600m seems mostly reasonable despite the heavy competition during this time. I'd say we're probably looking at a $1b movie here, although it may be slightly held back by 'Lion King' internationally. Critics will most likely enjoy the film a lot and audiences will love it.

8. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

Action, Adventure | Post-production

Lawman Luke Hobbs and outcast Deckard Shaw form an unlikely alliance when a cyber-genetically enhanced villain threatens the future of humanity.

Director: David Leitch | Stars: Idris Elba, Dwayne Johnson, Vanessa Kirby, Eiza González

Prediction: Domestic: $185,000,000 Worldwide: $915,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $63,000,000 Opening (Worldwide): $260,000,000

Reception: IMDb: 6.9 Rotten Tomatoes: 72% Metacritic: 61/100

This film is already looking to make less than the last two F&F movies internationally due to the nature of it being a spin-off. The release date has it sharing the international scene with 'Spider-Man' and 'Lion King', two films which are set to make lots of money no matter the country. This should however pull in some really impressive numbers worldwide. An international gross somewhere in between 'F8' and "F&F6' seems reasonable. This movie will make a killing in China despite the other two films looking to do the same. I imagine the domestic opening will be slighter than the last few films in the series due to the massive popularity that 'Spider-Man', 'Lion King' and 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' are sure to experience. It should boast the series' best multiplier since 'F&F (2001)' however, as the release schedule throughout August is essentially empty with the exception of this film. David Leitch has directed several critical successes so I imagine this will be viewed as one of the best films in the series by critics and audiences.

9. Aladdin (2019)

Adventure, Comedy, Family | Post-production

A kindhearted Arabian street urchin and a power-hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make the deepest wishes come true.

Director: Guy Ritchie | Stars: Naomi Scott, Will Smith, Alan Tudyk, Mena Massoud

Prediction: Domestic: $270,000,000 Worldwide: $800,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $92,000,000

Reception: IMDb: 6.8 Rotten Tomatoes: 69% Metacritic: 62/100

I'm sure some estimates have this way higher than what I'm predicting, but I don't think this will blow up in the U.S. like 'Jungle Book' or 'Beauty and the Beast'. I'm thinking numbers like 'Cinderella' or fellow Memorial Day openers such as 'Days of Future Past' and 'Solo' are far more likely given the busy summer movie season we have slated. I don't know how people will feel about this particular live-action remake, but if they're not mad about 'Lion King' then they probably won't be too mad about this one either. Overseas it will probably do very well, similar to previous live action Disney remakes. Critics will most likely respond to this one with similar enthusiasm to 'Beauty and the Beast'. The first teaser looked impossibly terrible, but the follow-up trailer had a lot of people convinced that this might not be all that bad, and that's enough for Disney to make a killing.

10. Untitled Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Sequel (2019)

Action, Adventure, Comedy | Filming

Plot kept under wraps.

Director: Jake Kasdan | Stars: Karen Gillan, Dwayne Johnson, Danny DeVito, Jack Black

Prediction: Domestic: $245,000,000 Worldwide: $790,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $45,000,000

Reception: IMDb: 6.4 Rotten Tomatoes: 57% Metacritic: 49/100

I'm pretty sure this will make a lot less money than 'Welcome to the Jungle' domestically. It releases three weeks after 'Frozen 2' and one week before 'Episode IX'. I think the mixture of these circumstances will result in a small-ish opening for this film; as audiences hold on to their wallets for the following week. This film's opening will be largely affected by the crazy amount of promotional material for 'Star Wars'. Following it's opening, we'll see a relatively average drop-off for the following two weeks and then I imagine it will make consistently smaller amounts of money throughout the entire holiday season resulting in an impressive multiplier. I seriously think 'Star Wars' will be a huge hit come December and alongside 'Frozen' still legging it out until the first few months of 2020, I still think there's room for this to do really well, but nowhere close to its predecessor. The placement of this one coming out before 'Star Wars' was an interesting choice seeing as how the last film released the following week to 'TLJ', resulting in its impressive holiday run. International numbers should be similar to 'WttJ'. Critical reception will very likely be poor and will also very likely affect the film's multiplier as it heads into January.

11. Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019)

PG | Action, Adventure, Comedy | Completed

In a world where people collect Pokémon to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent talking Pikachu who seeks to be a detective.

Director: Rob Letterman | Stars: Ryan Reynolds, Rob Delaney, Suki Waterhouse, Kathryn Newton

Reception: IMDb: 6.8 Rotten Tomatoes: 66% Metacritic: 56/100

12. The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

PG | Animation, Adventure, Comedy | Completed

Continuing the story of Max and his pet friends, following their secret lives after their owners leave them for work or school each day.

Directors: Chris Renaud, Jonathan del Val | Stars: Patton Oswalt, Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate

Prediction: Domestic: $210,000,000 Worldwide: $680,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $58,000,000

Reception: IMDb: 6.2 Rotten Tomatoes: 56% Metacritic: 50/100

Films like 'Aladdin' and 'Toy Story 4' will detract from this quite heavily to prevent it from matching the numbers the predecessor made. An opening in the realm of their latest, 'The Grinch' would be respectable enough. Paired with some decent summer movie season legs to achieve the usual $200m+ Illumination gross. 'Toy Story 4' does release only two weeks after and 'Spider-Man' and 'Lion King' will also play well with younger audiences the following month. So don't expect a super impressive multiplier here (just a good one for an animated film), but it should be enough to label this a success. International grosses should be the same deal. Critics probably won't dig this one as much as the first going by the track record of Illumination sequels.

13. It: Chapter Two (2019)

Horror, Thriller | Post-production

Twenty-seven years later, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.

Director: Andy Muschietti | Stars: Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Skarsgård, Sophia Lillis

Prediction: Domestic: $300,000,000 Worldwide: $670,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $117,000,000

Reception: IMDb: 7.0 Rotten Tomatoes: 74% Metacritic: 62/100

Don't really see any reason why this wouldn't make very similar numbers to the first chapter. Worst case scenario, the film loses interest with the loss of it's young cast members and it's fad 80s-setting, receives poor reviews and opens with a lower $80m-$100m; which would still be fantastically successful. I think this will fall into the intended success of sequels and deliver at least the same opening numbers due to everyone who saw the first film returning. Yes, I think it's true to a degree that the elements that made the first film a success not being present here could be an issue, but I think the new setting and cast just provides more curiosity in film-goers; and Pennywise is more insanely popular than ever. The cast also boasts the currently insanely popular James McAvoy. The big hits of the late summer such as 'Lion King', 'Spider-Man' and 'Hobbs and Shaw' should be down to making smaller numbers at the time of this film's release. All in all I'd say this fixes it for an opening somewhere in the range of $105m-$135m. It also has basically the entire month of September to make as much money as it wants before the predicted moderate success of 'Joker' rolls around on October 4th. International grosses will probably raise slightly. Reviews will most likely be similar to the first film, due to the same creative team at the helm; some critics however may find the film lesser, similar to the second chapter of the original TV movie.

Comedy, Drama | Post-production

A faded television actor and his stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry during the final years of Hollywood's Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles.

Director: Quentin Tarantino | Stars: Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Luke Perry, Brad Pitt

Prediction: Domestic: $215,000,000 Worldwide: $550,000,000 Opening (Domestic): $57,000,000

Reception: IMDb: 8.4 Rotten Tomatoes: 83% Metacritic: 79/100

Will undoubtedly be controversial among both critics and audiences, but I think most people will regard this as one of Tarantino's best films. This feels like it'll be appreciated as an instant classic and although it releases in the heat of the summer movie season, I think we're looking at a huge success for Tarantino here. DiCaprio gets people to the theater even more so than Tarantino. 'Django' did very well and DiCaprio has been promoted to leading role here. Paired with Pitt, audiences will be very excited to see the two beloved actors play off of one another. The film boasts one of the greatest casts ever assembled. This movie is sure to leg it out through the slow stretch of August, September and October. Tarantino's movies always do well internationally as well; I think we're looking at an impressive worldwide cume similar to 'Django'. I could see this going higher too, what with the $533m worldwide gross of 'The Revenant'. This is the kind of movie that I could see breaking out early on and opening with upwards of $60m, but it does release the weekend after 'Lion King', so we'll see.

Tough to say whether this will be mediocre or terrible. Whether it will make just some money or totally bomb. Whether international audiences will care about this at all and whether or not this will be anything like a conventional superhero movie. For now, I'm gonna say it'll be bad and audiences will see it in the same numbers as something like 'Apocalypse' or 'Ant-Man' domestically. Although 'Venom' really surprised last year in the same situation, I think that the Marvel logo really helped that film out, especially internationally.

Should be just as popular and even bigger at the box office than 'Get Out'. Looks fantastic, and we've seen other horror films like 'A Quiet Place' open before the summer and experience both an impressive opening and a large multiplier. Outstanding reviews seem pretty locked in if the film is as great as the trailer makes it look. Opens in 'Captain Marvel's third weekend, so that might hold it back ever-so-slightly, but horror openings seem to be trending upwards with 'The Nun', 'It' and 'Halloween'.
