Weekend Update February 19-21

February 17, 2010

“After a record breaking weekend due to the combination of Valentine’s Day (which created notable increases on Sunday, which is quite rare for most films) and President’s Day on Monday (causing strong holds), this weekend should see some shifts in the top 10 and some big drops.  Expect Number 1 film Valentine’s Day to make a strong drop this weekend.  Debuting this week is the eagerly anticipated Shutter Island, which finally makes it into theaters.  With Leo and Scorcese at the helm, the film should be a hit for the top spot!  As the only big release this week, the film should open well.”

Shutter Island

Watch It

The Ghost Writer

Netflix It (This film boasts the cast of Pierce Brosnan, Ewan Mcgregor and Kim Cattrall.  The actual story could be good or could fail.  Since its not in wide release, i suggest waiting for it on DVD!)

Dream Killers, The Good Guys, Happy Tears

Skip It (A video game movie and a story about family, and a romantic comedy from a guys angle. Your better off playing a counterstrike type game to create your own story and as far as romantic comedies and family, watch Valentines Day or Dear John!)


Weekend Update February 12-14

“After Dear John ended the seven week reign of Avatar, the film will lose it’s spot after a more normal single weekend at the top spot.  This weeks crop of film see two standouts and one indie worth seeing.  The Wolfman starring Benicio Del Toro and Emily Blunt, a remake of the 1941 classic which will definitely attract the twilight, horror and fantasy fans.  A smaller release, My Name is Khan, will be hitting theaters about love and portrayal of Muslims after 9/11 and the things a man has to do to reconnect with his separated wife. But the top draw for the Valentines Day weekend is the film by the same name about relationships and love with a popular casts ranging from Julia Roberts to Taylor Swift.  Coming into 3600+ theaters, the film is this years He’s Just Not Into You and will take the top spot as the watch it film of the week”

Valentines Day, The Wolfman, My Name Is Khan

Watch It

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightening Thief,

Netflix It (Although I am sure there are a lot of teens and tweens who will come out for this film, i don’t see the same draw as the Potter series attracting an older fan base?  This to me seems to be a younger version made for a younger crowd.  I would much rather wait for Clash of The Titans which is the same genre for adults)
