Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul Box Office Prediction

The fourth film in a franchise that’s been dormant for half a decade, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul debuts in theaters next weekend. The family comedy features an all-new cast from the three previous entries, but returns David Bowers, who directed the last two Wimpy sagas. That new cast includes Jason Drucker, Alicia Silverstone, and Tom Everett Scott.

Based upon a series of popular kids books penned by Jeff Kinney, The Long Haul has experienced the aforementioned long layoff between projects. Let’s take a trip down Wimpy Kid‘s box office memory lane, shall we?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010) – $22 million opening, $64 million overall domestic gross

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules (2011) – $23 million opening, $52 million overall domestic gross

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (2012) – $14 million opening, $49 million overall domestic gross

Pretty decent numbers for the 20th Century Fox series, but you can see its stateside hauls decreased with each picture. The five-year gap won’t help, as many of the kids who flocked to see the first three are older now.

I’ll predict this opens to a sub double digits gross and likely ends up as the lowest grosser of the franchise thus far.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul opening weekend prediction: $8.1 million
