Saw an interesting stat that every movie that has gotten over $120 million its first weeks has declined by over 50% it’s second weekend and none has ever had a $100 million second weekend. Will be interesting to see Avengers be the first…

My picks:

One: The Avengers – Assemble!
Two: Dark Shadows – It would take a _MAJOR_ miracle for this to even come close to the Avengers. Plus I’m hearing some pretty bad reviews. Shame, I was almost prepared to like it after the trailers…
The rest seem fairly straight forward:
Three: Think Like A Man
Four: Hunger Games
Five: Pirates! Band of Misfits.

Yeah, I’m gonna ‘ditto’ Tony, tho’ Lena’s #5 pick did kinda tempt me…
1) Avengers- no question. Holding #1 for next week is my question now (Monty thinks it will. Maybe he should see that Battleship trailer again….)

2) Dark Shadows- pretty much exactly agree with CougRon, except that I couldn’t even bear to sit through the trailer.

3) Think Like a Man- what else? Steady drops put it at about $4 million, and it actually ADDED screens.

4) Pirates!- lack of smaller kid fare and more screens means Hunger Games drops past this one.

5) Hunger Games- thought about Lucky One for this, as Hunger Games is dropping theaters, but HG has crossover with (possibly sold out) Avengers screenings and has shown consistently smaller drops week to week, where LO is steadily dropping at about 50%.

Monty dittoed me, and daHobbit dittoed him, oorrr we all ‘ditto’ Tony, but really, we ALL are ‘ditto’ to last week’s 25, Father Beast~!

Thanks for saying that, BD. I still don’t quite like that as my #5 pick but changing it (even within the allowed time frame) seems like cheating… so it stands. Hopefully it won’t drop too low and bite me in the nether regions.

Lena, if the estimates from Friday hold you’ll like like a genius, so to be too broken up about it!

Ok, I’m gonna risk a limb here. My picks for the weekend of 5/18-5//20. Ditto THIS:
1) Avengers- yeah, still.
2) Battleship- can’t take out Captain freakin’ America.
3) The Dictator- could surprise. Or do people still remember “Bruno”?
4) Dark Shadows- Depp & Burton: have they just gotten lazy?
5) What to Expect When You’re Expecting (or whatever that Cameron Diaz thing is called)- yeah, haven’t heard of this at all, and don’t think a second week of Avengers hype will change it.

BOOM! There it be. I challenge all to post today!!
