June is going to be full of face offs in the battle for box office supremacy. Here’s who we think will win.

June Movie Box Office Forecast

In this article…

Editor's Note: So many awesome movies are coming out this summer, and even more are going head-to-head. Here are which films I would pick: Edge of Tomorrow, 22 Jump Street, Jersey Boys and Snow Piercer. - Ross

Tom Cruise has already been stampeded over in Edge of Tomorrow by teenagers with The Fault in Our Stars. The rest of the month there will be other movies that will face off in the box office, but most of them will not be landslides such as the one this weekend. For the upcoming weekend we have 22 Jump Street going against How to Train Your Dragon 2, followed by Think Like A Man Too and Jersey Boys facing off, and for the final weekend we can look forward to watching Transformers 4: Age of Extinction going against Snow Piercer.

The Fault in Our Stars vs. Edge of Tomorrow

The first week’s contenders, The Fault in Our Stars and Edge of Tomorrow, went head to head this weekend. The Fault in Our Stars surprisingly trumped Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow with a $48.2 million weekend. Edge of Tomorrow fell victim to a bad opening with only $29.1 million for the weekend, putting it at the number three position in the box office.

Teenagers were definitely the main factors to this landslide of a victory for The Fault in Our Stars.

22 Jump Street vs. How to Train Your Dragon 2

Later this week we will see 22 Jump Street go toe to toe with How to Train Your Dragon 2. The two movies will not have a major gap like the previous weekend’s contenders but How to Train Your Dragon 2 will come out on top. The movie is more family friendly which it will use to its advantage to rake in more money, whereas 22 Jump Street will witness its own (slight) downfall due to its raunchy comedy.

Jersey Boys vs. Think Like A Man Too

We will see how Jersey Boys sizes up next to Think Like A Man Too on June 20. There won’t be much of a fight in the box office between the two, as Kevin Hart’s Think Like A Man Too should have no problem blowing Jersey Boys out of the water. The Jersey Boys movie has not had as much publicity compared to Hart’s Think Like A Man Too. Think Like A Man Too should not have any competition that weekend, especially with someone as hot as Kevin Hart is right now to drive ticket sales.

Transformers 4: Age of Extinction vs. Snow Piercer

For the final weekend of the month, Michael Bay’s Transformers 4: Age of Extinction will face off against Chris Evans’ Snow Piercer. This weekend will be a close run between the two. Both of them are action packed films with tons of fighting and drama, but Transformers 4: Age of Extinction will pull ahead of Snow Piercer in the final stretch.

Snow Piercer is more of an action packed film more geared towards the interest of men, whereas the Transformers franchise is always geared towards everyone. Hasbro's reach is pretty wide.Transformers will also always have its passionate fan base to help it win the race as well, including any new fans new lead Mark Wahlberg potentially brings over.
