All four of last week's newbies landed in the top five, though the previous week's number one film 17 Again had enough staying power to retain second place. Here's the top five:
1. Obsessed: $28.6 million
2. 17 Again: $11.5 million
3. Fighting: $11 million
4. The Soloist: $9.7 million
5. Earth: $8.8 million

Three new releases this week, one of which is a likely candidate for the first Summer Blockbuster of 2009.


Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
What's It All About:
In this Dickensian romantic comedy Matthew Mconaughey stars as a commitment-phobic womanizer who is visited by the ghosts of the women he has dumped over the years. Jennifer Garner also stars.
Why It Might Do Well: Good counter programming choice as this one will share virtually no audience members with the other new releases.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
Maybe it's the testosterone talking, but the trailer seems kind of dopey.
Number of Theaters:
3,000
Prediction: $22 million

X-Men Origins: Wolverine
What's It All About:
In this prequel to the X-Men movies, the adamantium-clawed mutant Wolverine takes center stage and shares the screen with other classic Marvel characters including The Blob, Deadpool and Gambit.
Why It Might Do Well: The three previous X-Men movies had opening weekends of $54 million, $85 million, and $102 million respectively. Will the trend toward mutant fever continue?
Why It Might Not Do Well:
Can Wolverine put asses in seats without the rest of the X-Men backing him up?
Number of Theaters:
4,000
Prediction:
$90 million




Battle For Terra
What's It All About:
Humans fleeing from a civil war and environmental issues back on Earth invade the peaceful planet of Terra. Amidst all this a human and an alien from Terra become friends and find that their people are not so different after all.
Why It Might Do Well:
67% at Rottentomatoes.com is enough to make me optimistic and it's playing in 3-D.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
The number of theaters is on the light side and I've yet to see any advertising for this one. Also, I think much of the target demo for this one will be going to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Number of Theaters
: 1,000
Prediction:
$6 million



Wolverine seems like a sure bet for the number one position, but what about the rest? Here's how I think it will play out:
1. X-Men Origins: Wolverine
2. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
3. Obsessed
4. 17 Again
5. The Soloist


A lot of folks thought 17 Again would hold its own at the top and many thought Hannah Montana had enough momentum for another week in the top five, but it was not to be. Congratulations to Zach H. for having the highest score of the week. Here's how we all did:
1. Zach H.: 13
2. Jebel72: 11
3. Matt: 10
3. hitesh choudhary: 10
4. English Gavz: 9
5. Vera: 6
5. cough: 6
6. Ray: 5
7. WJDR: 4
7. zimka: 4
7. greatone: 4
8. lostinafog: 3
