Whisper Numbers: Wonder Woman 1984 to repeat top spot in 2021

 

The New Year brings hope for the theatrical box office business.  However, the remnants of 2020 still carry over to the first weekend of 2021 as over 60% of theaters remained closed with no new releases.  Wonder Woman 1984 [WOND2] will dominate again, but the word of mouth is decisively mixed.  While some loved the sequel, others hated it.  Wonder Woman 1984 could hold better than 50% over the holiday weekend for another $9 million.

Despite its pedigree, News of the World [NEWSW] didn’t appeal to much of an audience.  The adult-targeted western may hold two-thirds of its opening for a second weekend at $1.5 million.

Monster Hunter [MONHT] looks to bag $0.6 million during its third weekend and cross the $5 million mark.

Promising Young Woman [PRMYM] should hold at least 50% of its debut at around $0.4 million.

That’s the whisper from the virtual trading floor.
