Mrs. Beast’s picks for the weekend of May 24 – 26, 2013:
1. Fast & Furious 6
2. Star Trek
3. The Hangover 3
4. Iron Man 3
5. Epic

I so want ST to be number one, but I don’t think it’s going to be. in fact it’s probably going to go down pretty far.

This weekend is going to be a mess…

1. Fast & Furious 6 – the last few movies have been fairly good. should attract a lot of people
2. Epic. – The kids are going to want a movie. I know next to nothing about this movie except that it’s suppose to be… epic. I think the kids are going to push this one up.
3. Star Trek Into Darkness – Word of mouth should keep the movie from falling to far.
4. Hangover 3 – The last movie wasn’t too good and this one has had bad reviews. it’s not going to do good.
5. Iron Man 3 – should hang in there one more week.
