The fantasy epic Seventh Son opens Friday and it may be in for some troubling results especially considering its reported $77 million budget. With a cast featuring Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, and Ben Barnes – Son has so far been met with mostly negative critical reaction.
It also doesn’t help that Jupiter Ascending is premiering on the same day and could easily siphon away much of Son’s target crowd. The marketing campaign has been relatively modest. Seventh Son might be lucky to match the last fantasy themed pic that featured Bridges, The Giver, which made $12 million out of the gate last summer.
My prediction reflects a feeling that this won’t even quite reach double digits for a very disappointing debut.
Seventh Son opening weekend prediction: $8.9 million
