Next weekend we’ll see the final days of summer along with some interesting compeition at the box office as Rambo: Last Blood, Ad Astra, and the Downton Abbey movie will be going head-to-head.
Current box office tracking suggests that Rambo might have a $3-9 million edge over both Ad Astra and Downton Abbey.
- Rambo: Last Blood – $20-25 million
- Ad Astra – $16-21 million
- Downton Abbey – $16-21 million
Lionsgate is banking on the marketing of Last Blood being the final Rambo installment for Sly Stallone, but iconic action star hasn’t had much luck at the domestic box office lately outside of the Creed movies. Rambo would certainly open below Creed II’s $35.5 million.
However, it’ll be interesting to see if Brad Pitt’s cache and box office success from Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood might translate to an extra boost of attendance for the science fiction movie.
Abbey will likely be courting a slightly older demographic than the other two, as the film is a continuation of the hit PBS period drama.
All three movies will be released on September 20th.
A paranoid thriller in space that follows Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) on a mission across an unforgiving solar system to uncover the truth about his missing father and his doomed expedition that now, 30 years later, threatens the universe.
Almost four decades after he drew first blood, Sylvester Stallone is back as one of the greatest action heroes of all time, John Rambo. Now, Rambo must confront his past and unearth his ruthless combat skills to exact revenge in a final mission. A deadly journey of vengeance, RAMBO: LAST BLOOD marks the last chapter of the legendary series.
The continuing saga of the Crawley family and the servants who work for them in the English countryside in the early 20th century.
