Weekend #1 Up for Grabs as 'Downton Abbey', 'Rambo' & 'Ad Astra' Hit Theaters

This weekend could see a serious battle for #1 as three brand new releases hit theaters, all of which could deliver as much as $20 million if not more. Among those films is Lionsgate's Rambo: Last Blood, Focus's Downton Abbey and Fox's Ad Astra, all set to target three different audiences and all but Rambo receiving a strong critical response. Which title will have the legs to cross the finish line first? We'll begin this weekend's preview with Downton Abbey, which will launch in 3,079 locations and Focus is heading into the film's opening with expectations for a $20 million debut. We've been looking at comps such as 2014's The Monuments Men ($22m opening) and Wonder ($27.5m opening) and it's right in line when comparing IMDb page view data over the two weeks leading up to release. It's also outpacing First Man, which opened last October with $16 million when looking at IMDb page view data.
