OK, another weekend where there's no clear box office contender. What's your prediction for #1?

I wouldn't be surprised if any of these were #1:
Dukes of Hazzard
Four Brothers
Skeleton Key
Wedding Crashers
Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo

Although I'm guessing it'll either be Bigalow or Brothers.

Wow. Pretty impressive for a so-so looking R RATED movie!

Oh, and I'll probably go see it tomorrow.

Looks like March of the Penguins is going to surpass The Island this weekend. The next hurdle will be to gross more than The Island and Stealth combined.

I predict that Four Brothers will be #1, and that it'll be the only film to break $20 million.

I must say that I'm a bit surprised that Four Brothers broke $20M.

Four Brothers and Duce both made almost 50% of the budget on the first weekend. Not a bad start.

So did Skeleton Key, if you count domestic and international receipts.
