Lionsgate hopes to fill audience lanes with the release of their thriller Traffik next weekend. The pic casts Paula Patton and Omar Epps as a couple on a romantic getaway who come into contact with a group of sex traffickers. Deon Taylor directs and costars include Laz Alonso, Roselyn Sanchez, and Missi Pyle.
Like the Amy Schumer comedy I Feel Pretty, this was originally scheduled to debut April 27 until Marvel moved Avengers: Infinity War to that day. Both Traffik and Pretty accelerated their releases up a week to avoid that behemoth.
The current screen count for this is listed at 1000, which is low. I’ll project there won’t be much congestion in theaters for Traffik.
Traffik opening weekend prediction: $3 million
