Weekend Box Office #55

Just a couple of movies opening wide this weekend:

SAW IV (3183 theaters). Pretty much an unstoppable force, and it should win the weekend handily. Figure $30.2 million.

DAN IN REAL LIFE (1921 theaters). The commercials don't have much of a hook, other than to make it look like a genial comedy with Steve Carell in it. But the reviews are pretty good. $10.7 million.

Also, THE DARJEELING LIMITED is expanding to 698 theaters, and apparently all the prints now have the tied-in short "Hotel Chevalier" running before the film. More Natalie Portman.

Huge Steve Carell fan. "Dan in Real Life" got good reviews in "The Seattle Times." THAT pushes me past my trepidations and low expectation, will go see it over the weekend.

Hey Scott, why aren't you posting? Why aren't you at the Expo?

EC - Did you read his last post, titled "Swamped?"

My Box office guesses:

Saw 4: More Sawier - 18 million

Danny - 7 million

Saw IV made over $14 million on Friday alone. Yikes.

Yeah, I thought that crap would be running out of gas.
