... It's looking like a second weekend on top for Ridley Scott's The Martian. Expect a $32.5 million second weekend, equalling a drop of 40%. This would be similar to Interstellar's second weekend, looking as if it too will finish it's domestic run around $190 million.
Second place could be close between Hotel Transylvania 2 and Pan, but the Drac Pack should hold on just fine with a third weekend total around $23.2 million. The animated sequel continues to outperform its predecessor and it seems we're only short while away from a third film being officially announced. ...
HT2 will likely end up one of Sony's biggest animated hits, since it's playing well stateside and should do equally robust business across the oceans.
