Project Almanac Box Office Prediction

Paramount Pictures and MTV Films are hoping to squeeze more mileage of the found footage genre with Project Almanac, out Friday. The pic stars a cast of unknowns and centers around the discovery of a time machine.

Shot for a meager reported budget of $12 million, the studios are wishing for a similar result to what Chronicle did three years ago around the same time frame. That found footage release managed a terrific $22 million out of the gate. I’m not as confident that Almanac will generate the same heat. Yet I will predict it grosses mid to high teens, which should be solid enough for a #2 showing behind the American Sniper juggernaut. In doing so, it would easily make its budget back in one weekend.

Project Almanac opening weekend prediction: $16.4 million
