I always like predicting Box Office grosses in advance. I correctly predicted the Skyfall opening earlier in November and now I am going to give my prediction for the Hobbit opening weekend.
First, I want to say that one of the factors affecting the Hobbit is the length of the film. At just short of three hours, there are less showtimes throughout the day, meaning that I don't think it will make it to the level of Avengers, or the Dark Knight Rises.
However, despite the length of the film, I am expecting somewhere around 95 million dollars. As Friday inches closer I may revise the prediction. But I have a feeling it will be within at least 10 million dollars of the 95 million dollar total.
