Next weekend will make it tough for those leading this week. A lot of people will want to see The Village & The Manchurian Candidate. I look forward seeing the numbers next week.

Catwoman will fall hard.

I don't think there is a person out there that predicted it would do that much. That is incredible & Damon is going to see his price-tag & movie offers sky rocket, showing he is now a huge opening weekend draw.

No one will believe me but somewhere around here I posted that Catwoman would makes literally $17 million opening weekend.

Nobody should be surprised at The Bourne Supremacy's box office take, when you consider the #1 DVD of 2003.

Indeed. But it's good news non-the-less, increases the odds of us seeing The Bourne Ultimatum made, which I'm already looking forward to.

yup, and with free movie tickets, you can expect any dvd on sale the tuesday before release with a free movie ticket will get that ticket holder and a guest to the theater so you got an easy two tickets sold there.

Well perhaps I should rephrase that. If a movie remotely looks good, the free ticket in the first film release dvd will boost sales. Fans of Batman: TAS knew that catwomen had very little to do with Batman: TAS and thus, they couldn't give a crap about it.

Wonder if Damon will soon increase his salary demands from $15M a picture to the elite $20M group?

you forgot, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle...one of the most anticipated movies of the year.

C'mon, how can you beat a movie with the MILF guy, the Indian guy from Van Wilder, and Doogie Howser.

Ah! I forgot about this one. It will bring in the money from the teen crowd & 20s crowd. Will Catwoman even make 9 million this weekend?

Bourne Supremacy, Harold & Kumar, Village, & Manchurian Candidate will obviously be the top 4.

I would be supprised to see this make 9 million next weekend. My guess is it will suffer a huge drop-off, putting next weekends total somewhere between 7 - 7.5 million

I think that The Village will be the big moneymaker this weekend. Followed by Harold & Kumar which will shock the world (a la Dodgeball beating The Terminal), then Bourne Supremacy and then The Manchurian Candidate. Although MC has Denzel, it still has the stigma that it's tryin' to redo one of the best movies ever.

Personally, I think that Catwoman will make $5-6 million. I think that it's gonna fall behind Spider-Man 2.

We all know it doesn't matter what Manchurian does opening weekend because it will undoubtedly have legs.

Why?

Because the adult crowd who don't normally go to movies will make an attempt to see this over the next month.

The Village will take home the big cash though.
