Second Act Box Office Prediction

Jennifer Lopez is back in theaters next weekend and in romantic comedy territory with Second Act. It casts the star as an unsuccessful worker granted the chance to enter the corporate world. Peter Segal, who’s been behind comedies such as Anger Management, 50 First Dates, The Longest Yard, Get Smart, and Grudge Match, directs. Costars include Vanessa Hudgens, Leah Remini, and Milo Ventimiglia. Reviews are mixed with a current Rotten Tomatoes score of 57%.

Nearly four years has passed since J-Lo headlined a feature with the thriller The Boy Next Door, which debuted to nearly $15 million. It’s been 2010 since we saw her in a rom com with The BackUp Plan and it premiered to just over $12 million.

Second Act faces plenty of holiday competition and I suspect its starting numbers won’t match the aforementioned pictures. I’ll say mid to high single digits is the result.

Second Act opening weekend prediction: $6.5 million
