20th Century Women first screened at the New York Film Festival in the fall and quickly became mentioned for awards attention. The 1970s set comedic drama is directed by Mike Mills and stars Annette Bening, Greta Gerwig, Elle Fanning, and Billy Crudup. Reviews have been strong and it stands at 93% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Yet it can’t be denied that its Oscar hopes have appeared to dim significantly. Its Best Picture prospects appear gone and even Annette Bening (once looked at as a sure fire Actress nominee) could be on the outside looking in. This is important because the lack of buzz could greatly hurt its box office abilities when it opens wide next weekend.
Women has performed decently in limited release, but I’m not convinced that will hold true for its roll out. I’ll say this manages just under $3 million.
20th Century Women opening weekend prediction: $2.8 million
