Next week will see Hot Tub Time Machine, which I am more and more stoked to see with the buzz that has been building around it. I hope it is as good as the tweeting seems to indicate! Also opening is How to Train Your Dragon 3D, a movie I had little hope for with the first trailer, but subsequent trailers have changed my outlook and I am looking forward to it.
Three movies dropped off the list this week: Brooklyn's Finest (12), The Crazies (13), and Cop Out (14).

Box Office Predictions Recap
A lot of flip-flopping this week. The biggest surprise was Diary of a Wimpy Kid which opened pretty robustly to take the number two spot. I knew I might have underestimated it when I was told how well it was performing at the local cineplex. I know that is merely anecdotal evidence but sometimes that pays off. Alice still performed well and came in under but close to my expectation. I guess my biggest disappointment would be my overestimation of Repo Men; it strikes me as a film that would have had a strong opening weekend.
Here is how the field matched up:
|1||1||Alice in Wonderland (2010)||$34,500,000||$36 million|
|3||2||The Bounty Hunter||$21,000,000||$22 million|
|4||3||Repo Men||$6,151,000||$15 million|
|2||4||Diary of a Wimpy Kid||$21,800,000||$13.5 million|
|6||5||Green Zone||$5,963,000||$7 million|
|5||6||She's Out of My League||$6,015,000||$5.5 million|
|7||7||Shutter Island||$4,755,000||$5 million|
|10||9||Remember Me||$3,800,000||$4 million|
|9||10||Our Family Wedding||$3,300,000||$3.5 million|
