Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life Box Office Prediction

The Girl on the Train isn’t the only title out next weekend based on a bestseller as Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life debuts. Based on James Patterson and Chris Tebbits’s 2011 book, the comedy aims to capitalize on its successful source material.

Griffin Gluck plays the middle schooler having a bad time with a supporting cast that includes Lauren Graham, Rob Riggle, and Andy Daly. Steve Carr (in his comfort zone after making other youth oriented yuck fests like Dr. Dolittle 2 and Paul Blart: Mall Cop) directs.

My expectation is that this will have a tough time breaking through to teens. The marketing campaign has been somewhat quiet. At least the animated blockbusters this year are geared toward a pre-teen audience and their parents attend, too. School could struggle to reach double digits, resulting in middling numbers.

Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life opening weekend prediction: $7.8 million

  1. I follow movies pretty religiously and I’ve never heard of this. Never saw it on any fall movie previews, never saw the trailer or any commercials. This is going to tank hard.
