  1. Here we go:

    1) The Hobbit- a risk? Maybe, but I think the % drop’ll be lots less, and it has the broadest appeal of the top three (loooong) contenders.

    2) Les Miserables- I was really into the soundtrack when this was on stage way back and the trailers take me right back into it. I may even get my father to go to a movie!

    3) Django Unchained- Can’t wait to see this. All I need is 3-4 free hours and I can fit it in!

    4) Jack Reacher- of the remaining movies, this has the broadest appeal.

    5) This is 40- hedging against Parental Guidance. Sure that one could do well, take 4th. It could also take 9th, so I’m not picking it. Now all I need is Lincoln to not have another (relatively) tiny % drop!
