Box Office: Who Will Win The Weekend?

Or maybe a better question would be: Will anyone beat Inception? In a to-the-death match-up last week, Inception managed to squeak past Angelina Jolie's Salt by $6 million. Still, though, Jolie fans should be happy that a female-driven action movie managed to open up with $36 million amidst the height of the summer movie season. Hopefully that will provide Hollywood bosses with yet another reason why we need more badass, female-driven films in our theaters right away!

Will Inception conquer yet again, or will one of these new releases inch its way to the top? Let's take a look...
 
 
 
What's The Scoop: Paul Rudd plays a rising executive who, in an attempt to impress his bosses, joins their monthly "dinner for idiots", where everyone brings along, well, an idiot, and the person who brings the biggest moron gets some sort of work advantage. Steve Carell co-stars as one of said idiots.
 
Why It Might Win The Weekend: In terms of comedic actors, you really can't go wrong with a cast that features Carell, Rudd, Zach Galfianakis and Jermaine Clement. And after a couple weeks of intense dramas, I could see this comedy rising to the top.
 
 
What's The Scoop: Zac Efron plays a guy who's still living with a tremendous amount of grief after he's in a car accident that kills his younger brother – so much so that he becomes caretaker of his brother's cemetery and believes that he can see him and speak to him.
 
Why It Might Win The Weekend: Zac Efron, shirtless. Go get 'em!
 
 
What's The Scoop: A bunch of rough-and-tough cats and dogs join forces to thwart the evil plans of a rogue cat spy.
 
Why It Might Win The Weekend: Last time I checked, talking cat and dog movies do pretty well at the box office. Put them together in one epic talking animal movie and, well, the rewards are limitless.
 
My Prediction: Tough weekend to be sure, though I'm going to chalk up one more to Inception.
