Weekend Box Office #76
Should be a fairly busy weekend at the multiplexes, though I'm not sure I want to see any of these.
DRILLBIT TAYLOR (3056 theaters). The most interesting thing about this movie is that it is co-written by Seth Rogen, which for some reason they aren't putting in the commercials. It's another Judd Apatow production, which is a plus for me, but the commercials really seem geared toward bringing in young boys, and I haven't seen enough that makes me want to rush out and see it. $15.3 million for the weekend.
SHUTTER (2753 theaters). The commercials make it look like it's scary, but they also make it look like all the other Japanese-influenced horror films, while it's PG-13. Still, I think it'll do okay. $16.8 million.
TYLER PERRY'S MEET THE BROWNS (2006 theaters). Tyler Perry is a force to be reckoned with, and I think this will wind up being number one for the weekend. $19.6 million.
