The Expendables 4 stars Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham and hits theaters this Friday. Here are its budget and box office projections!
The North American box office will have another slow weekend with nothing new coming out. The Expendables 4, starring Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham, opens in theaters this Friday and is predicted to be a modest success. Let’s go over its domestic market projections, budget, and more in-depth below.
The fourth installment of The Expendables, directed by Scott Waugh, brings back action stars Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham, and it will be a pleasure for their fans. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Megan Fox, and others have joined the cast this time. The picture had the potential to make a stunning premiere with such a superb ensemble, but it appears that persistent strikes are hurting the industry.
Yes, due to strikes, Hollywood celebrities are unable to promote films; The Expendables 4 was no exception. Now it all comes down to the film’s content, and a strong start will be lacking. According to Deadline, the movie is anticipated to generate between $15 and $17 million over its first weekend in North America. That’s a far cry from the $15.8 million spent on Part 3.
For those who are unaware, The Expendables franchise has a strong fan base in China, where the third installment brought in $73 million on its own. The Expendables 4 opened last Friday and is already playing in Chinese theaters after earning about $11 million over the weekend.
