May 29 – June 2 Box Office Predictions: ‘After Earth’, ‘Now You See Me’

              After Earth might do pretty well this weekend, but it also might suffer under the shadows of summer blockbusters. Those who see it will be seeing it for Will Smith, I'd think.

I'm certain fans of The Hangover franchise were lost after the second endeavour. It just wasn't good. I think the die-hard fans are going to run out to see this one. Though, if the skeptics hear significantly poor word-of-mouth, they'll just skip this.
