Box Office Challenge
Hitting the screens this weekend ...
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Pirates is the only real contender this weekend and, no surprise there, it's looking like Captain Jack Sparrow is poised to steal the show again.
Bridesmaids has been receiving pretty positive reviews and it sounds like audiences may have finally warmed up to the idea of a female-centric comedy (it's about damn time, folks) and it has a real shot at taking second place.
Then again, Thor has the whole 3D thing going for it, but it's solid box office results in the previous weekends make it seem like there's no other place to go but down. I'm predicting a third place finish for the alien god.
Finally, action flicks Fast Five and Priest may be rounding out our top five. The two have both seriously underwhelmed both critics and audiences alike, so I can't expect it to stick around too long.
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.
