A Monster Calls vs Hidden Figures vs Underworld: Blood Wars

Can Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Sing hold off the box office, yet again?

The post Holiday/New Years weekend is usually a dumping ground for miss-targeted movies... and surprisingly this year, there are a couple of well reviewed movies in that mix that could give Rogue One and Sing a run for it's money.

A Monster Calls
Hit Factor: Positive reviews (89% Tomatometer).
Flop Factor: Actually a 2016 film, which got lost in the release date line up... so it was pushed to January.

Hidden Figures
Hit Factor: Also, strong reviews (92% Tomatometer).
Flop Factor: Early January is usually when theater going slows down.

Underworld: Blood Wars
Hit Factor: It's a franchise.
Flop Factor: Didn't know they were still making these films... Early reviews are not that good (10% Tomatometer).

My Predictions:

Rogue One
A Monster Calls    
Hidden Figures
Underworld: Blood Wars 
Weekend Gross (millions)
