Box Office Preview - October 10, 2008

Movie of the Week:

Body of Lies
Plot: A CIA operative (Leonardo DiCaprio) uncovers a lead on a major terrorist leader suspected to be operating out of Jordan.
Buzz: Yeah, the plot is secondary. DiCaprio teaming up with Russel Crowe is the real interest here. And so far, when Ridley Scott directs Crowe, good things happen (Gladiator and American Gangster).

Also Opening:
City of Ember
The Express

The Beverly Hills Chihuahua must be stopped and DiCaprio plus Crowe should be enough to do the trick. Quarantine did not have an advanced screening in Portland or Chicago, so as always be careful with that.

We have two new writers joining our staff this week.
The reviews for the weekend...
Morrow McLaughlin - Body of Lies
Nick Allen - Body of Lies & The Express
Jeff Bayer - Happy-Go-Lucky & City of Ember

And now it's time for TSR’s Top 5 Box Office Challenge

Jeff Bayer and the rest of the staff will compete to see who correctly predicts the order of the top films for that weekend.

Here’s how it works, just decide the order. Points are awarded as such …
#1 at the box office = 5 points
2 = 4 points
3 = 3 points
4 = 2 points
5 = 1 point

So if you guessed the #1, and the #3 films, that would be 8 points.

For the season it's
Staff: 1
Readers: 2

Look for the TSR staff to add their predictions in the comments section. Deadline is Friday night.
