Weekend Box Office #139
I'm swamped this week, which is great -- I'm not complaining. Not sure if I'll have time to go to the movies this weekend, though, and I'm starting to fall behind.
Not that this week's offerings are all that thrilling:
THE PROPOSAL (3056 theaters). Though it's nice to see Sandra Bullock out in a movie that's getting some decent reviews, at the same time I've seen the trailer and I feel like I've seen the whole movie, and don't want to see it again. Call it $13.4 million for the weekend.
YEAR ONE (3022 theaters). It looks like dumb fun, and it could click with audiences, though then again audiences could just yawn and stay in to watch NASCAR. Prediction: $14.4 million.
WHATEVER WORKS (limited release). Remember when the release of a new Woody Allen movie was an event? Neither do I. None of the reviews that I've seen have been very enthusiastic.
Last weekend, THE TAKING OF PELHAM 1 2 3 made $23.3, which isn't terrible but is less than I thought.
IMAGINE THAT made $5.5 million, so I was dead on in my underwhelmedness.
