Next week will see the new take on Invasion of the Body Snatchers called The Invasion starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig, The Last Legion which tells the tale of Excalibur, and the new comedy from Seth Rogen, Superbad. Also entering limited release is the comedy Death at a Funeral which looks to be very funny.
Three movies dropped off the top ten this week: Transformers (11), Hot Rod (14), and BRATZ (15).

Box Office Predictions Recap
This week saw my predictions being either really close, or really off. My placings were spotty throughout the field, except for Becoming Jane and El Cantante, where I was so far off that it was laughable. I guess films like that won't be top ten material until this fall. At the other end of the spectrum I was pretty close with the top two spots, in both placing and box office. As for Stardust, I was close on placement and way off on box office; the best I can say there is go see it, you will not be disappointed. Daddy Day Camp did surprise me and make the top ten, but just barely.
Anyway, here is how I picked the field:
|1||1||Rush Hour 3||$49,100,158||$55 million|
|2||2||The Bourne Ultimatum||$32,879,125||$33 million|
|3||4||The Simpsons Movie||$11,269,651||$15 million|
|7||6||I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry||$5,877,915||$6 million|
|12||7||Becoming Jane||$2,902,117||$5 million|
|8||8||Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix||$5,432,130||$4.5 million|
|16||10||El Cantante||$1,401,148||$3 million|
