13. The Predator
Release Date: September 14
Budget: $75 million (estimated)
Shane Black's Predator sequel-reboot sure is struggling to pick up much traction with casual fans and franchise devotees alike, with a set of mediocre trailers suggesting a weirdly generic, tonally jarring attempt to re-tool the series in a blockbuster mould.
Online buzz is depressingly low for the film, which has also suffered through some unfortunate plot leaks and hand-wringing over its suspiciously brief 101-minute run-time. With roughly a month until it hits cinemas, this one would need effusively positive reviews following its TIFF premiere to stand a chance of even doubling its budget.
Though it'll probably scarcely top the $127.2 million box office of 2010's Predators, that movie cost a sensibly scant $40 million. Meanwhile, Fox has reportedly entrusted Shane Black with a far larger budget with the hope of rejuvenating the flagging franchise.
Estimated Box Office: $130 million
