Box Office Preview - April 23 - 'The Losers' don't need a 'Back-Up Plan'

Hitting the screens this week… The Losers

The Back-Up Plan

Oceans (Opens Thursday)

This week’s release features a little something for everyone. Between The Back-Up Plan for the ladies’ and The Losers for the fellas, this weekend’s shaping up to give last week’s winner, Kick-Ass a hard time keeping its minor lead.

It’s looking like The Back-Up Plan might be the winner this weekend. As the only real romantic comedy this weekend, it’s got an advantage over the more blockbuster-minded movies.

Then again, people are always looking for something new, but The Losers may not have what it takes to take down J. Lo. I’m predicting a second place spot for The Losers but it could be anyone’s game at this point.

Kick-Ass might not fall far this week. After just barely edging out ahead of the others, Kick-Ass doesn’t seem to be delivering the punches at the box office, despite positive reviews from most folks.

Date Night’s modest success looks like it’s coming to an end. The action comedy has had some rough times at the box office (including its second place debut) and seems to have resigned itself to the lower part of our list.

Finally, How to Train Your Dragon enjoyed a random spurt of success last weekend, but will that be enough to sustain it this weekend? This flick’s spent a lot of time on our list and I think it’s just about time to say goodbye, coming in at number five.

Each week we’ll take a look at the box office and see if we can’t nail the Top 5 films (in correct order).

It’s harder than you think. If you don’t believe, let’s see what your answers are.

My prediction for the weekend of April 23 - 25 …

1. The Back-Up Plan

2. The Losers

3. Kick-Ass

4. Date Night

5. How to Train your Dragon

So what are your Top 5 at the box office this weekend?
