Will Ghost in the Shell Top or Flop at the Box Office?

Will Ghost in the Shell Top or Flop at the Box Office?
While predicting box office grosses week in and week out is certainly not an exact science, some movies' blockbuster potential is much easier to identify than others. Hardly anyone was surprised that Beauty and the Beast debuted far above industry expectations, earning a record-breaking $174.7 million in its opening weekend, while dropping just 48.3% last weekend, to again easily win with $90.4 million. This weekend, the live-action fairy tale adaptation faces its biggest challenge yet, going up against DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby and Paramount's live-action manga adaptation Ghost in the Shell. Unless either of these two new releases overperforms in a big way, they shouldn't stop Beauty and the Beast from winning for a third weekend in a row, with a predicted $43.1 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that The Boss Baby is expected to debut in roughly 3,700 theaters, while the Ghost in the Shell adaptation is slated to debut in roughly 3,200 theaters.

Lionsgate’s Adaptation Of Wonder Relocates To November

A strong reaction from early test screenings has prompted Lionsgate to push its upcoming adaptation of Wonder back to November, according to Variety.

Initially slated for theatrical release on April 7th, Stephen Chbosky’s star-studded drama will now open opposite Justice League on November 17th. Lionsgate is reportedly hoping to cater to a family-friendly audience with today’s switcheroo, after deeming the mid-November corridor more “commercially viable” than the film’s original due date. An early April release would have seen Wonder go up against the likes of Zach Braff’s Going in Style, The Case for Christ and Smurfs: The Lost Village which, incidentally, also features Julia Roberts in a prominent role.

When it comes to Wonder, Roberts will play the part of Isabel Pullman, the mother of the young August (Auggie) Pullman who struggles to assimilate into everyday life due to his unsightly facial deformity. It’s a
