Is 'Killers' as bad as Carl Ichan says? Does 'Shrek' have any gas left? Is 'Predator's the surprise hit?
Will "Sex and the City 2" outgross "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" over Memorial Day weekend?
Jake Gyllenhaal is a great actor, but he's never opened a movie on his name in his life. He's also never played an action hero before, but that's his calling in "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time." This Memorial Day weekend he'll face off against a proven quartet of women led by Sarah Jessica Parker in "Sex and the City 2." Now, there is no way Disney isn't going to wage a huge marketing campaign to keep producer Jerry "Pirates of the Caribbean" Bruckheimer happy, but it may not be that easy.
The first "Sex and the City" made what was considered an astounding $57 million in its first three days because of an incredibly passionate fanbase. Throw in that fourth day on the weekend and things get very interesting.. If "Persia" is lucky (and the buzz is questionable), it will do anywhere from $50-60 million over the 4-day, similar to other May releases "Mission: Impossible III" and last year's "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian." Yep, we're betting the female audiences of "Sex" conquer the holiday frame, but it should be close.
