  1. My picks for the weekend of October 18 – 20, 2013:
    1. Carrie
    2. Gravity
    3. Fifth Estate
    4. Escape Plan
    5. Captain Phillips

    and my indie arthouse pick is: Paradise.

  2. Mrs. Beast’s picks for the weekend of October 18 – 20, 2013:
    1. Carrie
    2. Gravity
    3. Escape Plan
    4. Fifth Estate
    5. Captain Phillips

  3. 1.) Gravity – this movie is going to have to fall-to-earth pretty far for Carrie to beat it.
    2.) Carrie – only horror movie before Halloween, but Gravity is in orbit above all the competition right now.
    3.) Captain Phillips
    4.) Escape Plan – Sylvester and Arnold, together at last… and no one will want to watch it…
    5.) Cloudy 2 – those meatballs are never going to leave…

    That’s right, I don’t think Fifth Estate will even chart.

  4. Sooo close to a “ditto CougRon”–

    1) Gravity- if that that low % drop last week is repeated this week there’s no way Carrie can catch it.
    2) Carrie- while I do think Captain Phillips has staying power, Carrie would have to totally tank to get below it.
    3) Captain Phillips- or I supposed this could have a Gravity-like low % drop.
    4) Cloudy 2- Yes, I think Escape Plan will really tank. Like all the other movies the leads have been in lately that didn’t also have Statham.
    5) Escape Plan- wouldn’t even pick it, but it’d have to go sooo low that Fifth Estate would be here (despite its relatively tiny screen count.)

    Arthouse Pick: 12 Years a Slave , had a good RS review
