Projections: 'Interstellar' Aligned for Clean Sweep

6 Apr, 2015 By: John Latchem



Paramount's Interstellar is on a trajectory to dominate both the sales and rental charts for the week ending April 5. The latest Christopher Nolan directorial effort grossed $188 million at U.S. theaters and is backed by a huge promotional campaign.

Also in line for a strong debut is Anchor Bay's The Imitation Game, a World War II drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch as famed mathematician Alan Turing. The best picture Oscar nominee grossed $90.8 million domestically.

The newcomers will have to hold off what should be a strong second week from Warner's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which topped the charts the previous week.

On the rental chart, Interstellar is set to debut at No. 1, while Lionsgate's Wild Card is tracking strong at No. 2 and Imitation Game at No. 3.
