The way I see it, there are three possible first places this week. Fourth and Fifth are pretty much a lock.

1)Hunger Games
2)Titanic
3)American Reunion
4) Wrath of the Titans
5) Mirror Mirror

Man, I almost want to skip this week. If I get a 25 this week I earned it.

1) Hunger Games
2) Titanic
3) American Reunion
4) Wrath of the Titans
5) Mirror, Mirror

Oh, I just noticed I could have said “Ditto Tony”. I like that, if I can kick that asterisk off a 25 average, I can now say it’s partly Tony’s fault.

Man, I can’t ditto anyone (well, Scott, be he’s on the results show thread):

1) Hunger Games- I don’t expect a drop like last week, so about $30 mil, I don’t think the new releases can top that (well, maybe Titanic, but not on nearly 1500 fewer screens.)

2) American Reunion- it may only have one big week, but this is that week. The series’ start is old enough now to hit that sweet spot for nostalgia. And the full court press on ads & PR.

3) Titanic 3D- I’m curious to see what Mr. Cameron has done with this, and it didn’t suck as a story when 2D, so maybe I’ll see it. On a non-holiday weekend. Maybe.

4) Wrath of the Titans- what else is there for this slot, or this audience? Maybe some cross-over with American Reunion, maybe not.

5) Mirror Mirror- I really don’t see this dropping so much as to fall below 21 Jump St (and no one else seems to think so either- a possible spoiler for many picks?) But it could happen, I just don’t think (hope) it won’t….

BD- I gave serious thought to making jump street my #5 pick also

Oh, and Mrs. Beast is dittoing Tony and Andrew.

Menolly isn’t submitting this week.

Father Beast- yeah it could be interesting, a switch up at #5 could really mess up this plethora of 25s we’ve been having recently. As you’ll see below, at least one person did end up picking 21 Jump St. ( but a lone 25? I dunno….)
