Weekend Box Office #111... And I Need a Character Name
First the weekend. There are only two movies opening, and both are going to be pretty huge.
BOLT (3651 theaters). It looks like it skews a little young, but reviews have been good, and the 3D will help. My guess: $51.1 million.
TWILIGHT (3419 theaters). Huge advance sales, and a big teen audience (or at least a big teenage girl audience). It's hard to tell how far the audience will really expand from there, but the first weekend should be big. $68.2 million.
Jump in with your guesses, because either could be a lot bigger or smaller.
So I'm wrestling with one of the character names in the thriller I just finished, and I'm looking for a little random help.
Because it's sort of a character-thriller in which the main characters are introduced on the fly, I'm looking for a name that will fix itself in the readers' heads, so that they'll remember who he is, without it being too on-the-nose.
Here's the character: he's 22, a former jock sunk into a life of laziness and frustration, the alpha-male of the group. Nicknames are fine, and might actually work better, but aren't required.
