The Predator is tracking to earn between $25 and $30 million its opening weekend in the domestic box office.
As reported by Variety, the opening weekend for The Predator will last from September 14-16, and will compete with two other films opening that weekend: A Simple Favor and White Boy Rick.
According to Box Office Mojo, the 1987 original had a $12 million opening weekend, the 1990 sequel Predator 2 opened with $8.8 million, and 2010’s Predators opened with $24.8 million. Accounting for inflation, Predators is the closest indicator for how The Predator could perform in the current box office, and this newest entry is likely to exceed its opening haul. Predators worldwide gross ultimately surpassed $127 million.
