Weekend Box Office #121
So I'm back on the horse. I finished a fairly-solid rewrite draft of my dark thriller this morning. Now I can send it out into the world, and dive into writing something funny for a change.
A few mildly-intriguing movies opening this weekend:
THE PINK PANTHER 2 (3243 theaters). This looks like ass. It's hard to imagine who is going to see this; most people who bothered to watch the first movie don't seem to have liked it at all, and anyone who didn't seems more likely to just rent that movie rather than spend money on this one. Prediction: $7.1 million for the weekend. I'd be happy if it did less, but hell it'll probably do more.
HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU (3175 theaters). They are advertising the hell out of this, the cast is solid, and reviews have been okay. It'll probably click. $16.5 million for the weekend.
PUSH (2313 theaters). The screen count on this is lowish, but it may be #1, because it looks cool enough. $17.6 million for the weekend.
CORALINE (2298 theaters). Interesting-looking, but I'm not really sure what the audience for this is either, because it really doesn;t look like it's for kids. $5.6 million.
