The Box Office Hustle!!! The No Brainer Edition!!!

Welcome to The Box Office Hustle…The No Brainer Edition!!!  At the end of this edition, you’ll understand.  So, let’s role the tape.

Arriving this weekend in third place is “Did You Hear About the Morgans?”  starring Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker.  The story surrounds a couple whose marriage is on the rocks.  The situation gets much more complicated when they witness a murder and are forced into the witness protection program by the government.  They are sent to Wyoming, a far different lifestyle than there New York environment, and forced to blend in to the culture.  This should be a great comic retreat for those who are not interested in the high budget blockbusters often associated with the Holiday Season.  As usual, Hugh Grant is a reliable comic player and should add to the attraction of this film.  This movie is rated PG-13 for sexual references and a scene of violence.

“The Princess and The Frog” will be enjoying it’s second weekend in theaters in the number two spot.  This is a retelling of the classic tale “The Frog Prince”, which we all know from our childhood.  This film is a return to Disney’s classic animation in the tradition of “The Little Mermaid” and “The Lion King”.  The film enjoyed a healthy opening weekend in the top spot and should continue to garner in the cash.  This film will continue to appeal to all audiences, especially families with children.  The critics have praised it as well and it should find itself up for an Oscar for Best Animated Film.  The movie is rated G for all audiences.

Here is the No Brainer.  “Avatar” will be number one.  Does anyone really want to challenge that?  It is, by far, the most anticipated film of the year and will rake in the dough this weekend.  The story centers around an indeginous race being force off their land in order to attain a valuable mineral located in the area.  It is a universal them with some amazing special effects attached.  This is going to be a fun 2 and a half hours.  This film will definitely hustle you out of your money…so stop fighting the urge.  The film is rated PG-13 for action, adventure violence.

So, as you can see, this is a no brainer.  Would I lie to you?  GO GET HUSTLED!!!
