Gee, I wonder what #1 should be? Should I test the Green lantern rule and see? (Especially since I haven’t listened yet and have no idea what was said about any of this.)

1) Avengers- duh. and I expect to be picking it #1 for next week too.
2) Think Like a Man- only pick from last week not in the ~$11 morass. Even if it drops big, the others drop lower.
3) Pirates!- kids movie. Those have legs (or in this case, peg legs.)
4) Hunger Games- continues trend of slow drops, as girlfriends go see this instead of a third screening of Avengers.
5) Lucky One- sorry! But ‘5 Year’ tanked. And this has appeal to the girlfriends who don’t go see Hunger Games again.

1) Avengers – Assemble! It is impossible for this not to be First this week and probably next

Third, Fourth, and Fifth are where the jockeying is going to be…
2) Think Like a Man –
3) Hunger Games – I think a lot of the girls are going to go see this again, while their boyfriends are at other movies
4) Pirates! Band of misfits – Unfortunately it’s going to drop…
5) 5-year Engagement – this should hold on to it’s fifth place spot.

Short and sweet… ditto Tony (from BSBO last night) and Andrew, even though he wasn’t there, but I hate to leave him out.

My picks for the weekend of May 4 – 6, 2012:
1. Avengers – Duh
2. Think Like A Man
3. Hunger Games
4. Pirates
5. Lucky 1

I think that Hunger games can hold on to more of its 10.8 Mil in its -what, 6th week? than Pirates can hold onto of its 11.1 Mil in its first week. I figure the drop from first to second week is usually the biggest.
Same logic applies to the tussle between 5 Year Engagement and lucky 1.

Astonishingly, I haven’t dittoed anyone I know of, Though Jeff seems to have taken the ultimate safe route and moved the rest down one.

Monty says ‘ditto’ to my picks. Good lad!
DaHobbit is not participating (as she isn’t sure Avengers can take #1.)
