It’s looking like a landslide for The Lorax.
The animated Dr. Seuss adaptation featuring the voices of Zac Efron, Taylor Swift and Danny DeVito is on pace to win the weekend box office with a haul of approximately $55-$60 million.
Project X, the R-rated comedy about a wild high school house party, is expected to open in second place with $17 million or so.
Like Chronicle, another recent “found footage” hit, Project X stars a cast of relative unknowns.
Early estimates put three holdovers – Act of Valor, Safe House and Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds – in the Top 5.
Gossip Cop will have updates.
