‘American Sniper’ could be the highest-grossing movie of 2014.
The war drama is expected to surpass the most recent edition of “The Hunger Games” as 2014’s top grossing movie. The Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow feature film has made $282.4 million so far, putting it in third place, behind “Mockingjay Part 1”, which has made $335.7 million, and “Guardians of the Galaxy”, which had made $333.2 million.
BoxOffice.com is now predicting that the film will generate $360 million-$365 million during its domestic run.
“It has a really good chance to hit that number,” said Jeff Bock, a box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations. “It’s one of those things that’s in the zeitgeist, and people want to see it. Everybody’s talking about the the film, and people want to be part of the conversation.” [via]
