WWII Movie 'Midway' Is a Surprise Box Office Hit This Weekend!

The new action movie Midway could be the top movie at the box office this weekend, which comes as a surprise to most people in the industry.

There are four new movies in theaters this weekend and most experts had predicted Doctor Sleep to take the number one spot at the box office. The film originally had been projected to make $25 million to $30 million this weekend, but it likely will only make around $18 million now.

Midway was expected to launch with about $13 million this weekend, but it’s overperforming and could end with about $21 million, according to Variety.

The movie is a WWII film that recreates the Battle of Midway in 1942. It stars Ed Skrein, Luke Evans, Mandy Moore, Nick Jonas, Dennis Quaid, and more.

Also opening in theaters this weekend are the holiday rom-com Last Christmas and the family film Playing With Fire.
