Dead Due To Liven Up Weekend Box Office

A remake of the 30-year-old cult hit Evil Dead is expected to kill its competitors at the box office this weekend. Industry forecasters say it should earn $20-25 million. Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg's 20-year-old blockbuster Jurassic Park is also returning to theaters this weekend. It's not exactly a remake, however, unless one considers a 3D conversion to be a remake. Nevertheless, such conversions of classic films have not been able to draw big crowds in the past (Disney's The Lion King 3D was a prominent exception, as was the overseas release of Titanic 3D), and most box-office pundits figure Universal's Jurassic Park won't earn much more than $12-16 million and will probably wind up in fourth place. Second place, they say, will be a toss-up between two holdovers, Fox/DreamWorks Animation's The Croods and Paramount's G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which should earn around $15-20 million, according to analysts' forecasts.
