Another easy call at the top, the only art to predicting this weekend involves how high Thor will go. Will people respond to it the way the critics have? I’m going to say “probably” followed directly by a “but watch out for …” just to cover my bases.

2. Fast Five
The previous Fast film cratered 61 percent in its second weekend, but I’m slightly more bullish here, only dipping it 58 percent. I just think the franchise is in a place where the maximum amount of people are aware of the marketing.
Prediction: $36.38 million
It reminds me of a really terrible version of something already fairly bad, something akin to Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. But who is the demo for this? Women who don’t mind their best friends getting jiggy with their fiancee? I think it will do decently on Friday and then word will spread.
Prediction: $11.61 million
I’ve got it doing about ten percent per theater better than Just Wright, another May comparable, though this one is less “family” friendly with a PG-13 rating. But the trailers actually look kind of solid, no?
Prediction: $10.18 million
$371m on a budget of $90m means you’re likely to see Rio 2: The Reckoning.
Prediction: $8.54 million
The budget was only $38m, but it hasn’t done much internationally.
Prediction: $5.3 million
$42m and still earning, plus the budget had to be rather slim. If Perry could find a way to gain a foothold internationally he could become a billionaire.
Prediction: $3.65 million
The first one made $110m. This one likely won’t hit $25m. Luckily The Weinstein Company is still sitting on all that King’s Speech loot.
Prediction: $2.46 million
Only $8m in production costs, but they still have no chance of hitting a 3x multiplier theatrically. I call that justice.
Prediction: $2.4 million
10. Soul Surfer
$34m on $18m mean we can’t really make fun of it or call it a certain victory. It’s a tweener.
Prediction: $1.79 million
