Fortune smiled on Nicolas Cage as his apocalyptic thriller Knowing took the number one spot by a wide margin with last week's two other newbies I Love You, Man and Duplicity taking second and third respectively. Here's the top five:

1. Knowing: $24.6 million
2. I Love You, Man: $17.8 million
3. Duplicity: $13.9 million
4. Race to Witch Mountain: $12.8 million
5. Watchmen: $6.8 million


12 Rounds
What's It All About:
Police officer Danny Fisher (John Cena) finds that his girlfriend has been kidnapped by a criminal from his past and Fisher must endure a dozen challenges to get her back.
Why It Might Do Well:
Things blow up.
Why It Might Not Do Well: A generic looking action movie with no star power doesn't look like a good bet.
Number of Theaters:
2,200
Prediction:
$11 million

The Haunting in Connecticut
What's It All About:
Supposedly based on a true story about a family experiencing supernatural disturbances when they move into a home that was once a funeral parlor.
Why It Might Do Well: There's creepiness in the trailer.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
38% at Rottentomatoes.com does not bode well.
Number of Theaters:
2,600
Prediction: $18 million



Monsters Vs. Aliens
What's It All About:
In this animated comedy from Dreamworks a team of monsters under the control of the U.S. government must fight off an alien invasion.
Why It Might Do Well:
It's got an 85% fresh rating at Rottentomatoes.com, the trailer has a lot of charm and the voice casting seems downright inspired. Seth Rogen as an amorphous blob? Stephen Colbert as the President of the U.S.?
Why It Might Not Do Well:
Not gonna happen.
Number of Theaters: 3,500
Prediction: $50 million

I've fired up the old crystal ball and here's what next week's top five should look like:
1. Monsters Vs. Aliens
2. The Haunting in Connecticut
3. Knowing
4. I Love You, Man
5. Duplicity
