The Box Office Hustle!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another addition to “The Box Office Hustle”.  This week we’ve got two films returning to the countdown with only one new release in the mix.  Here we go!!!

Debuting this week at number three is “Armored”, starring Laurence Fishburne and Matt Dillon.  This film is a heist movie that guys will certainly flock to.  The story centers around a crew of armored truck guards committing a robbery on the security firm that they represent.  When things begin to go wrong, the players start turning on each other.  This will be a solid two hours that many will go see in order to escape the flooding of goodhearted films this holiday season.  Sometimes, you just want to see things explode.  This film should take $7 to $10 million this weekend.   The film is rated PG-13 for violence and language.

“The Twilight Saga:  New Moon” will find itself falling to the number two spot this weekend.  The film has made a killing over the past two weeks and will continue to rake it in this weekend.  Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve started the first book in the series.  I just wanted to see what all the fuss is about…and I want to read up to the second book before I see the new film.  So far it is very readable.  Expect “New Moon” to garner $17 to $19 million for the weekend.  Go team Jacob!!!  This film is rated PG-13 for violence and language.

Finally, I am please to predict “The Blind Side” will be taking the top spot this weekend with, at least $20 million.  I usually hold my opinions on films for this blog…but…GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!  It’s just a feel good movie.  You’ll leave the theater smiling.  Obviously, people are catching wind of this film and it has already garnered over $100 million.  It is Alcon Productions most profitable film.  Not bad for an independent film company.  This film is rated PG-13 for mild violence, sexual references and language.

Tune in next Tuesday as I review my final two anticipated films of the holiday season.  Until then, I’ll see you at the multiplex…you buy the popcorn.  GO GET HUSTLED!!!
