Well, it’s Oscar time ladies and gents, with this weekend finally bringing this year’s long-awaited Oscar ceremony on Sunday night. Look for a bunch of folks to use this time before the show to try to sneak in screenings of some of the Oscar-nominated films (at least those still in theaters), while everyone else heads out to see what new releases Hollywood has planned for us this week. Let’s take a look …
Box Office Poll: Who Will Win The Weekend? (2/25-2/27)
What’s The Scoop: Owen Wilson plays a married guy who’s given a “hall pass” by his wife to be with other women for one week. Hilarity ensues.
Why It Might Win The Weekend: Though they’ve been hit-and-miss as of late, this is the next comedy from the Farrelly boys, who gave us instant classics like There’s Something About Mary and Dumb and Dumber.
What’s The Scoop: Nicolas Cage returns to screens in another memorable, out-of-control role as a father who heads out to avenge the death of his daughter and the kidnapping of his granddaughter.
Why It Might Win The Weekend: Who wouldn’t want to watch Nicolas Cage go absolutely crazy on the big screen in 3D?
My Prediction: Last week I was massacred after I listened to you all and predicted I Am Number Four. So now I’m going rogue and picking Hall Pass. Your move Fandango-ers!
