Projections: 'Pacific Rim' Looks To Beat 'The Heat'

21 Oct, 2013 By: John Latchem

Two big titles released Oct. 15 could end up at the top of the sales charts in what should be a close contest. Fox’s The Heat has the edge at the box office (with $159.3 million), but Warner’s Pacific Rim ($101.8 million) should attract huge fanboy interest. The Heat also has the advantage of arriving at retail just as star Sandra Bullock has a hit film in theaters in Gravity.

With both titles delayed for rental at Redbox, the top rental performers will likely not change much from the previous week.
