In a refreshing turn for the box office, three highly anticipated releases are set to bring some excitement back to the big screen, filling theaters with thrilling narratives and family-friendly fun despite the recent lull caused by the SAG-AFTRA strike. Among these, New Regency/20th Century Studios/Disney’s original sci-fi venture, “The Creator,” Paramount and Spin Master’s delightful “PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie,” and Lionsgate’s gripping “Saw X” are poised to collectively rake in around $45 million.
The competition for the top spot is fierce, particularly between “PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie” and “The Creator,” both of which have enjoyed robust marketing campaigns. While all eyes are on these two, “Saw X” also promises a spine-chilling experience, especially among Latino and Hispanic moviegoers, accounting for a significant portion of its impressive $2 million in preview earnings.
“The Creator,” despite a slightly slower start, offers an immersive experience with premium ticket sales in formats like Imax, ScreenX, and 4D. Meanwhile, “Saw X” has surged ahead, surpassing the previews of its predecessors in the franchise. With a fresh rating of 85% on Rotten Tomatoes, “Saw X” has received the best critical acclaim in the franchise’s history, a testament to its captivating storyline and thrilling execution.
