Box Office Best Bets?

The Today Show provides us a list of what movies are opening this weekend opposite Gnomeo and Juliet. Who do you think will get the top box office?

  • Gnomeo and Juliet. We’ve discussed this. A bit. 🙂
  • Just Go With It, an Adam Sandler / Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy. Somebody remind me the last time either of them had a hit?
  • The Eagle. Every time I see this trailer I swear I think it’s Coriolanus, but it’s not. I have no idea what it is, though. There’s ghosts, what appear to be indians, and Roman centurions. I’ve just learned in this article that it’s based on a book – I had no idea if it was supposed to be a comic graphic novel or what.
  • And last but not least …. Justin Bieber. In 3D. The less said about this, the better.

So, wait, did I say who would win at the box office? I think young Mr. Bieber may have my gnomes at a disadvantage.

[ Why do I care so much about this movie? ]

  1. The Eagle is based on the Rosemary Sutcliff children's book Eagle of the Ninth, written in the 1960s or 70s (I read it in 1977). It's about an ex-centurion (injured) in Britain, whose father was in the Ninth Legion, and he (the main character) goes north to find out what happened to them. Unfortunately based on a premise that archaeology has subsequently proven to be completely wrong, but I certainly enjoyed it a lot when I was about 12, and I am planning to see the movie.
