In case anyone notices, I left Shark Night 3D off on purpose, b/c I just don’t know where to put it (AND ITS RELATIVITY). Am I exploiting a possible flaw in the system? Maybe. Anyone have suggestions on a fix? Is one needed?

1) Apollo 18- I just can’t see The Help at #1 for another week, at least not counting Monday, and we don’t here.

2) The Help- I’m thinking about $9- 10 million, maybe less.

3)Rise o/t Planet o/t Apes- last chance to see the Apes may be this weekend, plus a stronger showing than my #4 pick (see how I avoided spelling it?) means this holds on at about $4-5 million.

4) Columbiana- it’s PG-13 and it did ok last week. What else will the kids see? Shark Week’s over.

5) The Debt- looks good and I figure it only needs about $5 million to crack the top 5. Any other week? Nah, but looks like the post-summer season’s starting early….

Time to make my picks real quick like. Crossing my fingers here:

1.) The Help
2.) Apollo 18
3.) Shark Night 3D
4.) Rise of the Planet of the Apes
5.) Columbiana
