Mrs. Beast’s picks for the weekend of May 3 – 5, 2013:
1. Iron Man 3
2. Pain & Gain
3. Oblivion
4. 42
5. Big Wedding

I’m thinking this should be one of those weeks, where if they don’t pick Iron Man 3 at #1, you’ll fix it for them.

looks like a pretty straight forward weekend:
1) Iron Man 3
2) Pain & Gain
3) Oblivion
4) 42
5) Big Wedding

Monty says:
1) Iron man 3
2) Pain & Gain
3) 42
4) Oblivion
5) Croods

My Picks:

1) Iron Man 3 – duh. Like I could pick anything else.
2) Oblivion- slightly better recieved, slightly more screens, and more likely to get draw from sold out Iron Man 3 showings?
3) Pain & Gain- I’m conflicted about 2, 3 & 4 slots, to be sure.
4) 42- I mean, I almost picked this as #2. It could happen, it’s the least likely draw for IM3 audiences.
5) Croods- I’m more sure of, small drop, kids movie, and so on.
