BOX OFFICE PREDICTIONS: Will ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ Be Able to Defend Its Spot at the Top of the Charts?

Last week the alien invasion movie Battle: Los Angeles attacked the box office and earned $36 million in its opening weekend. Although there are three highly anticipated new movies opening this weekend including the new thriller Limitless, the alien comedy Paul, and the courtroom drama The Lincoln Lawyer, we predict that Battle: Los Angeles should be able to hold on to its box office crown for a second week in a row.

Predicted to hold on to the number one spot for a second week in a row is the new alien invasion movie from Darkness Falls director Jonathan Liebesman called Battle: Los Angeles. The film stars Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), and Michelle Rodriguez (Avatar), as well as Bridget Moynahan (I, Robot), and Michael Peña (Crash). Last week the film made $10,536 on each of its 3,417 screens for an opening weekend total of $36 million, which earned back just over half of its initial $70 million production budget. The movie is predicted to earn an additional $20.1 million this weekend.

We talked about the intensity of shooting a war film, which co-host of The View actress Michelle Rodriguez would save from invading aliens, and got a little information on Eckhart's upcoming film The Rum Diary based on the book by Hunter S. Thompson.
