Box office estimates for September 27 - 29; Cloudy eats competition

Sony's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and its $35 million debut beat the original's $30.3 million. It won't be significantly more successful than the first in America, but should do much better overseas. (See Despicable Me 2, which beat DM's American total by $110 million and its overseas total by over $200 million.) Sony should be glad that it won't disappoint like Smurfs 2Prisoners beat the expanding Rush. The weekend's two new romantic comedies placed fourth and fifth. Baggage Claim and Don Jon only made $9.2 million and $8.8 million, but those grosses are already ahead of their low budgets. Metallica Through the Never's $1.7 million is much lower than other concert film debuts, but it stars a much less mainstream artist and will expand to more theaters next weekend. See how other movies performed here.
