  1. I had some questions about Percy Jackson 2 vs 1, Planes vs. Cars and bald Matt Damon queries, but with 4 wide releases I figured the jumble at the top would be difficult enough.

    Deadline is Wednesday night!

    Planes – $35m
    1. Elysium
    2. Percy Jackson

  2. Yeah, it’s not a Pixar film – but it’s a sequel/direct spin-off to a Pixar film (albeit their worst). That’s probably enough for 99% of audiences.

  3. PERCY 2 is actually a noticeable step up from the first film (which I hated), but it’s still a pretty bad movie. Nathan Fillion has a five minute scene that alone is better than the entirety of both movies.

  4. Do you mean you don’t understand Nathan Fillion’s popularity, or you didn’t realize he’s in PJ2 (for 5 minutes, it seems)?

  5. Yeah – Fillion isn’t all that and a bag a chips. He’s okay. Castle is pretty much his speed. He’s perfect for TV.

  6. Elysium – 35M
    1. Planes
    2. We’re the Millers

    I’m not sensing a whole lot of excitement around Elysium.

  7. Fillion seems like a good guy and all, but yeah: he’s at about 60% of the natural charisma and talent needed to be an a-lister.

  8. Glad I didn’t flinch and up my prediction like I started to do… and now we have an even narrower race.

  9. Sorry for the delay- Only the top 2 guessers received *any* points this week…amazing.

    Jackrabbit Slim
    Elysium, 34 million +4
    1. We’re the Millers +0.5
    2. Planes +0.5

    ELYSIUM – $34.3 million +2
    1) WE’RE THE MILLERS +0.5
    2) PLANES +0.5
