Let’s see where betting on the public to let me down will get me.

Oh, and my indie arthouse pick is: Kon-Tiki

1) Pain & Gain
2) Oblivion
3) 42
4) Big Wedding
5) Croods

And my picks
1) Pain & Gain- might not take #@1 (Oblivion still has almost 4000 screens) but it is a well promoted movie with stars that people will still (usually) go see. And it doesn’t (at least) look like a typical Michael Bay flick.

2) Oblivion- I actually thought this would debut better, so I kind of expect a (slightly) bigger than usual fall.

3) 42- will keep drawing enough baseball fans to stay competitive.

4) The Croods- continues to perform, no other kids movies out, still plenty of screens.

5) Big Wedding – this could really tank, I think, but it’s have to do a measly 2+ million to get down to 6 or 7.

Mrs. Beast’s picks for the weekend of April 26 – 28, 2013:
1. Pain & Gain
2. The Big Wedding
3. Oblivion
4. 42
5. The Croods
