Battle for Terra. (2009, 85 minutes, PG, animated science fiction) Here is a another movie I am planning on skipping. I like the idea of humanity being the invading force on an alien culture, but this just does not look good. I get the idea that it is another Space Chimps, and I was already suckered into seeing that dud. I am sure there will be those who like this movie and while I am happy for you, I am just not willing to lay out my money for it.
Also opening this week, but not near me:
- The Limits of Control
Box Office Predictions
Is there any doubt what movie is going to top this week's charts? Would it be safe to guess it features a tri-clawed Aussie? Yeah, I think so. Yes, everyone's favorite mutant hero has his own film opening this weekend, perhaps you've heard of it? As for the rest of the chart? There probably will not be much happening other than a downshift. The other new release, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, should prove to be a popular counter-programming choice. As for Battle for Terra, which is opening on 1,000 screens? I doubt it will have much of an impact at all.
Here is how I think it could play out.
|1||X-Men Origins: Wolverine||$86 million|
|2||Ghosts of Girlfriends Past||$17 million|
|4||17 Again||$7.5 million|
|5||The Soloist||$6 million|
|8||Monsters vs Aliens||$4.5 million|
|9||State of Play||$3.75 million|
|10||Battle for Terra||$3 million|
