Box Office: “Batman” beats “The Boss,” trouble for Melissa McCarthy?


Melissa McCarthy’s new picture, “The Boss,” is set to narrowly lose the weekend to “Batman v. Superman,” just based on Friday night’s numbers.

Her best day is going to be Saturday (today), and “Batman” is fading. Fast. So maybe the critically-crushed comedy has a shot to edge up to near the $22 million mark. That’s what it”ll take to claim a win. Both are $21.5 range, as of Friday night’s numbers.

“Hardcore Henry” is bombing. Fickle fanboys aren’t putting down their PS3 etc. to come see it. Fickle fickle.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Demolition” may not crack the Top Ten, opening in under 1000 theaters and enjoying weak reviews.

“Miracles from Heaven” has moved back ABOVE “God’s Not Dead 2,” in the “Christian victimhood” melodrama’s second weekend of release.

“Eye in the Sky” is clinging to the Top Ten one more week. Ditto, “10 Cloverfield Lane” which should finish its run at about $75.
