Upgrade Box Office Prediction

Blumhouse Productions is out with its latest low-budget flick that hopes to generate high dollar figures when Upgrade debuts next weekend. The sci-fi horror revenge pic comes from director Leigh Whannell, best known for his involvement in the Insidious franchise (including directing its third chapter). Logan Marshall-Green, Betty Gabriel (best known as the creepy housekeeper in Get Out), and Harrison Gilbertson are among the cast. Early reviews have been decent as it currently stands at 73% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Upgrade is slated to open on a rather low 1400 screens and that will limit its potential. I would not anticipate this coming anywhere near the massive successes that Jason Blum and his studio have achieved with titles like the aforementioned Get Out, Split, or Happy Death Day. Instead it appears destined to premiere similar to BH Tilt’s lesser offerings like The Belko Experiment, The Green Inferno, or Incarnate – none of which managed to clear $5 million for their starts.

Upgrade opening weekend prediction: $2.8 million

  1. I read these every week, keep up the good work. I like how you cover EVERY wide release, not just the tentpoles.

  2. I have been seeing previews for this all the time lately, and it looks awesome. How is this not going to make at least $5M?

    1. I just don’t see the buzz for it currently. Don’t get me wrong – $5M wouldn’t surprise me really, but I think it comps out better with stuff like Belko Experiment and Incarnate

      1. my gut pushing me towards movies like this is probably why I don’t place even top 1000 on FML very often.
