As everyone wants to see the performance of film Suicide squad in its second week of release on the other hand film Florence Foster Jenkins by Meryl Streep also releases this Friday, it is going after the adult audience.

There is going to be a lot new stuff consisting of action and comedy at the weekend on the box office all thanks to the adult comedy Florence Foster Jerkins in which they’ll be talking about hot dogs, and an opera singer whose role is going to be played by Meryl Streep, a group of super villains and a very family friendly dragon who is named Elliot.

Suicide squad is expected to earn up to 47 million to $54 million on the coming weekend which shows a decline of about 60-65%.

Pete’s Dragon by Disney, Sausage Party by Sony and Annapurna, a live action reimagining of a 1977 movie and last but not the least an adult comedy film Florence Foster Jerkins Starring Hugh Grant along with Meryl Streep are the three new entries for the weekend.

Sausage Party in roughly estimated to debut in 2800 theaters and it has a good potential of breaking out as a hit all thanks to its modest budget , commendatory reviews and highly talented producer duo of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and also the whole team behind ‘This is the End’. This duo partnered with Sony and Annapurna to make this movie whose story is about a brave sausage who guides all his fellow hot dogs on a mission to learn what really happens to them when they leave the grocery store. Its script is by Kyle Hunter, Ariel Shaffir, Rogen and Goldberg and it is directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan.

According to predictions, the R-rated adult comedy film is to be opening up in the range of 15 to 20 million dollars, which is projected due to its showing a $19 million production budget. Box office analysts believe that it could do more than what it’s predicted to earn although Sony is being very conservative claiming that only up to a low to mid-teen millions would do so. Micheal Cera, Salma Hayek, James Franco, Jonah Hill, David Krumholtz, Nick Kroll, Edward Norton, Danny McBride, Kristen Wiig, Paul Rudd and Rogen are all part of its voice cast.
