Next weekend will see what will likely be the year's top-dollar performer, if not a terrible critical success in My Sister's Keeper. Wait, I'm sorry that can't be right. I suspect that movie will have a decent critical reception and perform a little to the weak side of the box office. What I meant to say is next week will see the anticipated release of Michael Bay's toy commercial, more commonly known as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
Two movies dropped off the top ten this week: Angels & Demons (11) and Drag Me to Hell (12).
|This Week||Last Week||Title||Wknd Gross||Overall||Week in release|
|5||3||The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3||$12,034,899||$44,067,224||2|
|6||4||Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian||$7,807,185||$156,459,744||5|
|8||6||Land of the Lost||$4,358,945||$44,055,510||3|
Box Office Predictions Recap
If I had a mirror, this could have been a pretty good week for me. The top four were the mirror image of what I thought they were going to be. Funny thing, the mirror almost extends to the left side where my gross predictions are, with the number one and number four movies matching up almost exactly. No way did I think that Sandra Bullock would outdraw Jack Black, but then again, no one is going by me anyway so I should have known better. The rest of the cart almost fell in line, with most of the films matching up. Next week I can already tell you what the number one movie will be, but that is just too easy.
Here is how the field matched up:
|4||1||Year One||$19,610,304||$27 million|
|3||The Hangover||$26,753,473||$20 million|
|1||4||The Proposal||$33,627,598||$19 million|
|5||5||The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3||$12,034,899||
|6||6||Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian||$7,807,185||$6 million|
|8||7||Land of the Lost||$4,358,945||$5 million|
|7||8||Star Trek||$5,511,434||$4 million|
|9||9||Imagine That||$3,290,227||$3.25 million|
|10||10||Terminator: Salvation||$3,284,230||$3 million|
