Beat the Blogger...
This weekend a trio of movies are opening in theaters. None of them are exactly going to be breaking records. Here's how this works. I give my prediction of how things are going to go for the new movies and you see if you can beat me.
The movies opening this weekend are Taken starring Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen and Lost's Maggie Grace. The Uninvited stars Elizabeth Banks. New in Town stars Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr.
Paul Blart is going to stay at number one and Taken will take the most of the newcomers, though considering how little entertainment value is offered in the film it will probably have maybe one good weekend beofre dying out. It's been released overseas and has been sitting around for some time over here (think Al Pacino's 88 Minutes last year). Taken should do about $13 million. The Uninvited should do about $10 million while Zellweger's zero buzz film is flying so under the radar expect it around $6 million.
What do you think??
