Judging by the $1M Crawl was able to take in on its Thursday night run at the box office, Crawl is predicted to land itself the third highest earning film at the theaters this weekend behind Spider-Man: Far From Home and Toy Story 4. It is already outperforming the Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista-led film Stuber, which made $780,000 during its theatrical debut on Thursday.
Crawl is no competition for Spider-Man: Far From Home nor Toy Story 4 because in its first nine days, Far From Home made $220M and in its second weekend it’s predicted to make anywhere from $35M to $45M, ahead of second place Toy Story 4 which will most likely take in $20M-$25M. Predictions have it that Crawl will rake in up to $10M this weekend as it opens in more theaters.
