#BOXOFFICE: “GRAN TURISMO” SET TO MOTOR TO THE TOP
A close finish is projected at the Box Office this weekend with GRAN TURISMO, debuting with $17.3 million from 3,856 theatres for Sony Pictures. Based on a true story of a racing gamer who found himself in the driver’s seat, this gets 60% on the Tomatometer. It is National Cinema Day this Sunday, so it will be interesting to see how this might impact these projections.
BARBIE is poised for second with $15.8 million from 3,736 theatres for Warner Bros., taking it to an incredible $593 million domestically.
BLUE BEETLE is set to take third with $10.5 million on its second weekend, a tally of $44 million thus far for Warner Bros.
OPPENHEIMER gets fourth with $7.8 million, taking it almost to the $300 million-mark for Universal Pictures.
TEENAGE MUTANT NINA TURTLES: MUTANT MAYHEM rounds the Top Five out with $5.9 million for Paramount Pictures, a total $98 million.
