A couple of big new releases this week hit UK cinemas, both actually opened before Friday but will impact the weekend box office chart.
Now You See Me has a host of big names, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Jesse Eisenberg and not forgetting our own Michael Caine. The story is a bank heist, of sorts, by a group of magicians.
Not much buzz or excitement around this film, it opens on a Wednesday but with little excitement it will probably have a top 5 entry.
The Internship is a Google based film about a couple of “old people” who win an internship at the search giants. Everyone who works there is very young and the 2 older guys do their best to win favour and do a good job.
Starring 2 massive comedy names in Vince Vaughn and Own Wilson, and a massive advertising campaign this could see a good opening weekend, not strong enough to displace Despicable Me 2 and I think it may struggle with Man of Steel but 3rd place entry.
Come back next week to see if I came close to predicting the entries of these 2 films.
