Oh boy, I was really all out of ideas when I came up with the title of this post. Let me be honest here, the weekend after Thanksgiving is by default a terrible one with almost no releases so I really had to dig to find the one wide opening of the weekend, more after the break.
So after just having seen the trailer for The Warrior’s Way, opening in 1622 theaters this weekend, I must say they should have named this Ninjas versus Cowboys. The movie doesn’t look bad at all so as I’m writing this the RottenTomatoes page of The Warrior’s Way is loading. Ouch, the movie is coming out today and there are only 6 reviews out there? Doesn’t inspire much confidence, does it. 2 fresh, 4 rotten as we speak, audience rating is at 61% (but we all know how those work). Since I’m running out of stuff to talk about in regard to this movie, I will end with this before I go to my prediction for it, $42 million were spent on the making of The Warrior’s Way. Right now I’ll be going for a $7 million opening, good for 4th place.
In 1st we’ll have most likely Tangled with $27 million while Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 1 will be in 2nd with $23 million for a grand total of $250 million so far in North America.
3rd should be Megamind with $7 million while for 4th and 5th place we have, as mentioned above, The Warrior’s Way and Unstoppable, the Denzel flick with $6 or $7 million.
To my surprise Faster might not fall out of the top 10 yet. Ok, maybe not as much surprise as lack of proper analysis from me when it came to looking a week in the future (we have only one damn movie opening and I did not have the decency to check that small fact before going about and making fun of Faster). So to end this on a good note, I’m sorry for what I said you nice people that worked on Faster, a movie I haven’t seen and I most likely won’t see until it comes on DVD, a rental that is, at best.
Next week we go back to a familiar place in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and get a visit from the Tourist starring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp.
