This weekend will see two big films going up against each other, with Live Free or Die Hard (which opened on Wednesday) trying to hold off Ratatouille.
‘Die Hard’ opened with $9.11 million on Wednesday, and added another $5.92 million on Thursday. I said on Thursday when the box office receipts were released for ‘Die Hard’ that the film would go on to take between $30-35 million from Friday to Sunday. I’m still sticking with that prediction.
So that leads us to Ratatouille, which seems like it’ll take the weekend, but it’s a little harder to gauge what the box office of the film will be. Based upon what previous Disney/Pixar films have done and the incredibly high marks this film is getting (96% from RT) it looks like it’ll do somewhere between $50-55 million.
In anticipation of Ratatouille’s release, here are a few videos you can watch from Disney’s official YouTube site.
Following below, you’ll find the previously released 9-minute segment of the film:
