Fast Five
Hoodwinked Too: Hood Vs. Evil
Prom

TSR’s complete Film Review Database

This weekend is a pretty difficult one to call, considering there are three titles coming out and I’ve only seen a trailer for one of them. Maybe this speaks volumes about the movies I watch or their marketing budget, but I know for certain it means one thing. ,b>fast Five is currently the frontrunner for first place.

Rio has proven to be the little bird that could, holding on strong for several weekends now. My best bet is that it’ll loosen its grip on number one and take a backseat to Fast Five, landing it in second place this weekend.

Water for Elephants has had a pretty rough go of it so far, but that doesn’t necessarily spell disaster for the movie. After all, Robert Pattinson makes it seem pretty likely that it’ll at least hold on to its third place spot.

Madea’s Big Happy Family may take a serious hit this weekend. My best guess is that most of the people that wanted to see it, already have, but there may be some stragglers, bringing it down to number four.

Finally, the lack of any real female-friendly fare might be just enough to get Prom into fifth place. There’s not a lot of stuff out there for adolescent and teenage girls, so Prom has a shot at making the list, but it’s not likely that it’ll climb much higher than last place.

Each week Calhoun Kersten and Aaron Ruffcorn go head to head in a Box Office Challenge.
Who will win?

Aaron will be back Monday with the Box Office Review. Tune in to find out who wins.
