April 26-28 Box Office Predictions: ‘Pain & Gain’ vs. ‘The Big Wedding’

        The Big Wedding looks like a lame romantic comedy. It could be funny, but it looks as if it has flop scribbled on it. It's a big ensemble including Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Susan Sarandon, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, Robin Williams, Ben Barnes and Topher Grace. I guess it's better than just another Katherine … Continue reading April 26-28 Box Office Predictions: ‘Pain & Gain’ vs. ‘The Big Wedding’

Box Office Predictions: ’42’ versus ‘Scary Movie 5’

After three consecutive weekends where at least one film grossed over $20 million, this weekend has the potential to be a four-peat. I say again, potential because the two new releases are a baseball biopic, 42, and the fifth addition to the Scary Movie franchise. Baseball movies are sometimes a hard sell at the box … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ’42’ versus ‘Scary Movie 5’
