Hollywood is making the most of this holiday weekend with four major films set to debut. TRUE GRIT, COUNTRY STRONG, GULLIVER’S TRAVELS and LITTLE FOCKERS will all do battle with other top films such as TRON that were only recently released. Hollywood could potentially set some new total weekend box office records with so many huge films set to debut. Expect huge box office numbers from this holiday weekend regardless of whether one single film breaks records by itself.
TRUE GRIT looks to be far and away the best reviewed western so far this year and should draw the biggest box office numbers. You can expect important award nominations for this film as well. And Gwyneth Paltrow should make a major return to the big screen in the acclaimed, COUNTRY STRONG. It should draw pretty respectable numbers. And even though both GULLIVER’s TRAVELS and LITTLE FOCKERS have gotten terrible reviews, both should draw big numbers and have their fans regardless of whatever the critics think.
With some signs of the economy improving with increased consumer spending for this Christmas season, expect consumers to spread some of that cheer by going to a movie as well. Hollywood is seeing nothing but $$$$ this weekend!
