Box Office Poll: Who Will Win The Weekend?

Black Swan and The Warrior's Way
It’s one of the softer weekends of the year, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing out there worth watching. While most people will catch up on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Disney’s Tangled, there’s a couple smaller, lesser-known films hitting the multiplexes. Let’s take a look …
What’s The Scoop: Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler) returns to screens with this buzzed-about psychological horror film about a ballerina (Natalie Portman) suffering through personal and professional problems while she readies for a performance in a big ballet.
Why It Might Win The Weekend: It’ll be a big awards contender, that’s for sure, and Portman is already a frontrunner for Best Actress, so why not give it a shot? Does it have enough to compete with the big boys? Probably not, but those who want to get an early head start on checking awards contenders off their list should seek this one out asap.
What’s The Scoop: A stylized mix between a martial arts flick and an old-school western, the film follows an Asian warrior assassin who’s forced to hide out in a small western town. Kate Bosworth also stars.
Why It Might Win The Weekend: Have you seen the ridiculously slick-looking trailers? If you’re in the mood for some visually stunning action set pieces, this is the film for you.
My Prediction: Quiet marketing campaigns will keep the above two films out of first place, so expect it to be another down-to-the-wire race between Harry Potter and Tangled. As far as my prediction goes, it’s a toss-up: Let’s say … Tangled.
Which film do you think will win the weekend?
