Hard to say... Both films are heavily marketed big event films. Directors of both films have a extremely strong recent track record. And both benefit from a pre-existing brand name and awareness. Narnia also will likely benefit from the church-effect. It's gonna attract a lot of christian moviegoers.
But so far almost nobody has seen either film, and that's the big question mark.
I think both will open north 60 million, but it's hard to say before the reviews start coming in. Narnia has the upper hand because it's only 2 hours, but I think KK is gonna have the bigger hype.
