Summer 08 Box Office Predictions - Misc

The summer holds a couple of other noteworthy sci-fi films too:

Hellboy II: The Golden Army - $85 Million - July 11

The first Hellboy was better than most people probably expected and the second looks bigger and better. I am not sure if big red is ready for the mainstream yet, but the sequel should do better than the original. Hopefully the take is big enough to allow for a part 3.

X-Files: I Want to Believe - $40 Million - July 25

10 years after the first movie and several years after the series went out with a whimper, I just don't know how many people are going to get too excited about this movie. People will probably assume its one of those parody remakes ala Brady Bunch rather than an honest to goodness sequel. It may be good, but it just seems that this ship has long since sailed.

And of course, there will be bombs:
The Love Guru - $25 Million - June 20

Oh Mike, when did you stop being funny? This looks awful. This does not look to be the summer of the comedy.

Meet Dave - $12 Million - July 12

Why not just make Pluto Nash 2? This movie about a little Eddie Murphy flying a big Eddie Murphy shaped spaceship looks and sounds horrible. At least its not Cuba Gooding Jr.
