B.O. Derby

My predictions may not be so great, but baring any ridiculous dropoffs, Pirates looks like its going to take the summer crown. In addition to breaking the opening and three-day records, Pirates may have achieved what no other film ever has, $100 million by day 2. I am sure the suits at Disney are pleased.

Superman has already begun to stall, and $200 million might be out of reach. Then again, maybe now that everyone has gotten Pirates out of their system, they will go give Supes a chance. I really hope a sequel gets greenlit, as I think the next Superman film could be amazing (as in Superman may actually get to throw a punch).

Cars is still on a roll. I am not sure how much this little Pixar film still has in its tank, but I think there is an outside chance of it passing up the X-Men. It's always nice to see good films do well.

Next week, You, Me and Dupree opens, so it looks like the Pirates may have another week on top. Summon the Kraken!
