13 Hours’ hopes to be the next ‘American Sniper’ at the box office


The Paramount film opens on the same weekend that another war movie, “American Sniper,” did last year. “Sniper” made $89.3 million for its opening weekend in 2015.
Box office analysts forecast that “13 Hours,” which has a budget of $50 million and is opening in 2,400 theaters, should bring in an opening weekend of $20 million to $25 million.
With the buzz, however, it could follow in the footsteps of other war films like “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Lone Survivor” that caught on with audiences in January.
