Weekend Preview: Scrooge, Aliens, Men, Goats, And A Magic Box

November 6, 2009

This weekend is the first full weekend in November, and as the weather’s getting colder, the box office is getting hotter.  Four new wide releases hit screens today, and the box office should see some solid depth over the next few days.  Disney, as part of its crusade to turn Christmas into a two-month-long event, is releasing A Christmas Carol, and it will certainly win the weekend.  I don’t talk about it too much in the video because I wrote a rather epic analysis of it yesterday.  Read it here.  Also entering theaters this weekend is Universal’s alien abduction film, The Fourth Kind, Overture’s war satire, The Men Who Stare At Goats, and Warner Brothers’ psychological mind-bender, The Box.  Watch the video above to get my take on their box office prospects, and then check the chart below for my full box office predictions.  Let me know what your predictions are in the comments!
