I had predicted Horton Hears a Who would hold onto the number one spot for another week, but that honor went to the blackjack drama 21, and as much bad word of mouth spoof movies get Superhero Movie still managed to take third. Here are the weekend totals:

1.
21: $24.1 million
2. Horton Hears a Who: $17.7 million
3. Superhero Movie: $9.5 million
5. Drillbit Taylor: $5.7 million

This weekend will see three new major releases representing the romantic comedy, family, and horror genres.

Leatherheads
What's It All About:
George Clooney stars in and directs this romantic comedy set against the backdrop of the rise of professional football in the 1920s.
Why It Might Do Well:
Well, it's directed by Clooney, and despite the fact that every time his name comes up I feel obliged to make a crack about Batman and Robin (those wounds have yet to fully heal), his last directorial effort was the excellent Good Night and Good Luck. That film had a $7 million budget and pulled in $54.6 million worldwide.
Why It Might Not Do Well: This one should do well enough, but based on the number of theaters, I don't see this one hitting number one.
Number of Theaters:
2,700
Prediction:
$19 million


Nim's Island
What's It All About:
A young girl (Abigail Breslin) living on a tropical island must fend for herself when her father becomes stranded far away. She soon enlists the aid of the author of a book she's been reading (Jodie Foster).
Why It Might Do Well:
Of all this week's releases, this one is opening in the largest number of theaters by quite a large margin, so I see this one leading the pack in dollars.
Why It Might Not Do Well: The trailer looks interesting enough, but this feels like something that was made for the Disney Channel. Will people pay to see something like that?
Number of Theaters:
3,400
Prediction:
$22 million

The Ruins
What's It All About:
Based on a novel by the author of A Simple Plan, four American tourists in Cancun find something evil lurking in a remote archaeological dig.
Why It Might Do Well: I know I love a good scare, and I know lots of other people do too. If The Ruins can deliver the shrieks it's got a chance. Shutter is holding on at number 6, so there appears to be a market for horror.
Why It Might Not Do Well: If this weekend's movie-goers prove to be a bunch of scaredy cats.
Number of Theaters: 2,500
Prediction: $12 million

Here's my prediction for next weekend's top five:
1. Nim's Island
2.
Leatherheads
3. 21
4. Horton Hears a Who
5. The Ruins

1. Focker: 16
