Well, looking at this weekend, there’s only one place to go for number 1. More accurately, number 1 with a bullet!

1) Skyfall – If you think this won’t dominate the box office, get off the drugs and wake the frack up.

2) Wreck-it Ralph – Because you got to park the kids somewhere while the grown-ups are at Skyfall.

3) Flight – Denzel’s just rocking it out.

4) Man with the Iron Fists – I have no idea. Just pushing down from last weekend. It was pretty excellent in the classic kung-fu movie style.

5) Taken 2 – ? Why not, if you can’t see Bond, you might settle for Liam Neeson. Here’s a question, when are Neeson and Craig going to get a face-off in a Bond movie? That would be pretty epic.

Mrs. Beast’s picks for the weekend of November 9 – 11, 2012:
1. Skyfall
2. Wreck It Ralph
3. Flight
4. Argo
5. The Man With The Iron Fists

Oh, and my secondary back seat box office pick is for A Royal Affair.

What the Sausagefest is keeping everyone from posting a back seat box office episode?

Quickly, this week:
1) Skyfall- of course. Can’t wait to see this.
2) Wreck It Ralph- if I thought younger nephew could sit through it, I’d see it in the theater.
3) Flight- looks like a straight drop down, this week. Flight to #3.
4) Argo- continues tiny % drops, week to week.
5) Man with the Iron Fists- east coast can see it this weekend? (C’mon Neeson! Let it go!)
