After a dude-friendly start to the summer movie season with flicks like X-Men: Days of Future PastGodzilla,Neighbors, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, summer's second quarter finally promises something for the ladies in May 30's Maleficent and June 6's The Fault in Our Stars

 

Up first this weekend, Angelina Jolie's oft-passionate core audience is expected to turn out for Disney's live action version of the famous Sleeping Beauty villain. The film follows in the recent tradition of Alice in Wonderland and Oz the Great and Powerful as the studio introduces classic fairy tale characters to a young, modern audience. The flick represents summer's first tentpole targeted toward women of all ages--an important strategy for Hollywood in the post-Hunger Games climate (or any climate, really).

 

The presence of a mega-star in Jolie, big scale visuals, and the revival of Disney's drawing power among moms and daughters (thanks to the phenomenal success of Frozen) should make for a potent opening weekend. Jolie and Maleficent will likely surpass the $56.2 million debut of June 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman, and, for a bit of fun household rivalry, could even top her man Brad Pitt and World War Z's $66.4 million bow last summer... (MORE)

Haven't girls had enough success with Catching Fire and Frozen? It's time for men to win for a change.

I am damn fine with Maleficent doing 60-70M. I am not fine with EoT doing 25-30M OW. If both could do at least 50M, I wouldn't complain. I don't want an epic movie like that to bomb with Disney's new turd makes a huge amount of cash.

It is too late :( It will be lucky to do Oblivion numbers in America, IMO.

Isn't Maleficent targeted towards another audience? I'm more worried about Fault In Our Stars sending it to Oblivion. Pun intended.

I've been seeing a lot of ads for and most people want to see it. It'll do better than you think.

I feel Fault in Our Stars is being severely underestimated. I know it's anecdotal, but literally almost every girl between 14-21 I know (I'm 19) is excited for this movie. Additionally, many of my friends that aren't big on social media are excited for the movie as well. We don't see the hype because most of us are not females in the target demographic, but I think we're in for a surprise. I honestly could see an OW above 50m for this movie and a leggy run upwards of 175m, maybe even a push for 200.

If Fault In Our Stars is supposed to be so big, can someone explain to me why it's not showing up on the movietickets.com sales lists? YA adaptations have dominated those lists for weeks before release. If this is supposed to be another huge YA adaptation, it should've been on that list weeks ago.

If Maleficent opens with around 60m, it won't be that huge.

i hope they will be able to co-exist. But Fault might hurt Maleficent a bit.
