Projections: 'War Horse' Looks To Escape 'Zoo'

9 Apr, 2012 By: John Latchem



Only two new releases would seem to have any chance of impacting the sales chart for the week ending April 8, both modest box office performers that will face strong challenges from holdover hits.

Disney’s War Horse, from DreamWorks, seems most likely to top the charts, after earning several Academy Award nominations and $79.78 million at the domestic box office. Fox’s We Bought a Zoo brought in $75.29 million in theaters and also looks to perform well.

To top the rental chart, War Horse will have to hold off previous top rental The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, from Sony Pictures, and Fox’s Immortals, which comes off its 28-day embargo.
