Box Office Challenge: 'Thor' 'Something Borrowed' and 'Jumping the Broom'

Box Office Challenge

Hitting the screens this weekend ...

Thor Something Borrowed Jumping the Broom

TSR's complete Film Review Database

This weekend has some competition for number one, but seriously? Who can compete against a god? Consider me one of the faithful, but I see Thor leading the box office this weekend.

Then again, I don't think we've seen the last of the Fast Five. The high-octane sequel stole first place last weekend, but I think it may end up playing second fiddle this weekend.

Something Borrowed may win over the female audience this weekend, but is that enough to win the weekend? Unfortunately, I think not. I see a bronze medal for this rom-com.

Jumping the Broom may win over its audience, but I worry that the audience may not be big enough to guarantee it a box office win. I picture this movie landing in fourth, but not much higher, even with a dedicated audience.

Finally, Rio may fly into fifth place. After several weekends in the top five, this one is in serious danger of becoming extinct. Still, I think it may have another weekend left in it.

Each week Calhoun Kersten and Aaron Ruffcorn go head to head in a Box Office Challenge. Who will win? Maybe you. Aaron will be back Monday with the Box Office Review. Tune in to find out who wins.

We’ll take a look at the box office and see if we can’t nail the Top 5 films (in correct order). Also guess how many millions the #1 movie will make.

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

Calhoun Kersten's prediction for the weekend of May 6-8 …

1. Thor ($55 Million) 2. Fast Five 3. Something Borrowed 4. Jumping the Broom 5. Rio

Aaron Ruffcorn's prediction for the weekend of May 6-8 …

1. Thor ($55 Million) 2. Fast Five 3. Something Borrowed 4. Rio 5. Jumping the Broom

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