On the heels of The Nun's strong start to the fall season, this weekend sees the release of Fox's The Predator, which should top the weekend box office, though a cloud of controversy may stall what might have been a larger performance. Also releasing this weekend is the Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick thriller A Simple Favor, Studio 8's White Boy Rick and Pure Flix's Unbroken: Path to Redemption, all poised for a spot in the top ten. Debuting in over 4,000 locations, Fox's The Predator isn't having the best of time leading up to release. The controversy swirling around the film has been all anyone is talking about and reviews are, at best, lackluster. The film is currently looking as if it will fall short of Alien: Covenant's disappointing $36.1 million opening last May with studio expectations for the $88 million production in the high 20s, perhaps reaching $30 million for the weekend.
