“ To be honest I don't know how this franchise got funded. But it did, so it has to have some fans. Still with a weak month, all of Maze Runner's 6 fans should be able to help it reach #1.

Jan 24-26: $21 million ” - johnhoskins25
Cloverfield Movie (2018)
After a scientific experiment aboard the space station involving a particle accelerator has unexpected results, the astronauts find themselves isolated. Following their horrible discovery, the space station crew must fight for survival.

Death Wish (2018)

“ Wait what? Listen, this will be a sleeper hit. If the low Oscar, Emmys and NFL rating haven't made it obvious, Americans are sick of intently politics. And thanks to it's anti-pcness & that their's no other competition. This should kickstart a new wave of films. Also keep in mind, this isn't a "nerd culture" film. So RT & YouTube yesmen have no power here.

March 9-11: $46 million ” - johnhoskins25

March 23-25: $52 million ” - johnhoskins25
Ready Player One (2018)

May 25-27: $220 million ” - johnhoskins25
Deadpool 2 (2018)
Plot is unknown at this time.
Director: David Leitch
“ I'm pretty sure even the producers of Fox know all they have to do is have Deadpool say funny things and have some good action scenes. If they do that, the YouTube yesmen will already praise it like it's the Citizen Kane of superhero movies. But first they need an approval rating from their master RT. Still if isn't better than the first I still expect it to be successful as long as they have those two elements stated earlier.

Director: Brad Bird
“ This is also my pick for highest grossing film of 2018 (If Han Solo manages to screw up, then Incredibles 2 will win). Yes Toy Story is the only Pixar franchise with good sequels. But Brad Bird's back & said he would only do a sequel just as good as, or better than, its predecessor. Considering Bird hasn't made a bad animated film, this should be good.

June 15-17: $200 million ” - johnhoskins25
“ I know Jurassic World experienced backlash one week after it's release, but that didn't hurt it's box office gross in anyway. I don't think it's going to out gross it's predecessor (at least in the States). But it will still be successful nonetheless

“ July 13-15: $48 million ” - johnhoskins25
Alita: Battle Angel (2018)
In the twenty-sixth century, a female cyborg is rescued from the scrap heap by a scientist.
“ Live action Anime hasn't been on a winning streak. But Alita has something Ghost in the Shell & Death Note didn't. James Cameron. But how does this effect the film? Unlike the other two films producers Cameron's an anime fan and knows what he's doing. While that won't please all the anime fans (that's impossible) it should bring optimism to the film.
