You Pick the Box Office Winner (10/28-10/30)

With Halloween arriving on Monday, prepare to see a whole bunch of strange-looking people dressed up in costumes over the weekend, though do not prepare to see too many scary movies at your local Cineplex. Yup, this October went light on the spooky content, with the exception of Paranormal Activity 3 which cleaned up last week at the box office by taking in a whopping $52.6 million. Nope, this week won’t see any other new horror movies enter the marketplace; only a sci-fi thriller, an animated comedic adventure and another odd one starring Johnny Depp. Let’s take a closer look …

 
What’s The Scoop: Your favorite smooth-talking cat from the Shrek movies returns to the big screen in his first starring role, which follows the events leading up to Puss’ first meeting with Shrek and the gang.
 
Why It Might Win The Weekend: Who doesn’t love a talking, animated cat who acts like Zorro? Plus, kids already love this guy from all the Shrek movies, and so it won’t be hard to convince them to join Puss and friends on another adventure.
 
 
What’s The Scoop: It’s sort of like an updated version of Logan’s Run (but not), except with Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried. In this sci-fi version, folks are engineered to live to only 25, though you can buy your way to immortality. Timberlake plays a guy accused of murder, who takes a hostage (Seyfriend) with him on the run. Freaky futuristic action ensues.
 
Why It Might Win The Weekend: You don’t get much sexier than a Timberlake/Seyfried pairing, plus this comes from the guy who directed Gattaca, which is one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time (in my opinion at least).
 
 
 
What’s The Scoop: Based on the book by Hunter S. Thompson (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), Johnny Depp stars as an American journalist who takes a freelance assignment in Puerto Rico during the 1950s and winds up on a wild adventure as he becomes accustomed to the people and culture of his new home.
 
Why It Might Win The Weekend: Whenever Johnny Depp meets Hunter S. Thompson on screen the results are almost always worth seeing, if only to witness the awesome lunacy on display.
 
My Prediction: It’ll be hard to go up against Paranormal Activity 3 on Halloween weekend (especially after its monster opening), but I feel Puss in Boots is up for the challenge. Look for the cat to take out the ghosts come Monday morning.
 
My Pick of the Week: I fell madly in love with Like Crazy when I saw it back at Sundance, and it’d be a crime if I didn’t try to convince you to seek this sucker out where and when you can. This beautiful and heartbreaking love story tracks one young couple’s (Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones) long-distance relationship through its ups and downs via moments and montages and glances and … God, just writing this makes me want to hug someone. Anyone who’s ever been hopelessly in love will find something to relate to here, whether you like it or not. Definitely put this one on your to-do list right now. Go, we’ll wait. Done? Good. Let us know what you think.
 
Now it’s your turn to sound off below with your pick to win the weekend …
