A Look Ahead To 2014
So how does 2014 look? Better in my opinion. Once again, Arnold Schwarzenegger gets us started with TEN. With a very strong supporting cast, an interesting story and good action director, TEN has the potential to do much better then THE LAST STAND. Don't expect huge numbers obviously, but a domestic take of $50-$60 Million is within the realm of possibility.
Jason Statham looks to have at least a couple films coming out in HOMEFRONT and HUMMINGBIRD. HOMEFRONT may even come this year but no release date has been announced. HOMEFRONT should do about the average for Statham, around $30 Million, HUMMINGBIRD will crash and burn if released in theaters here (I doubt it will be).
The big one to be looking forward to is obviously THE EXPENDABLES 3!!! No release date has been unveiled yet but if we go by the last two films I'm looking at August 15, 2014 as our date. EX3 is likely to finish in the same range domestically as THE EXPENDABLES 2 but if both Jackie Chan and Jet Li can be brought on board, internationally EX3 should make a killing and Chan may even be able to help EX3 push past $100 Million domestically again.
What do you guys think? Will 2014 be a bounce back year?
