ADMIT ONE – Movie Previews for Weekend of Nov. 18th, 2011

No surprise to see that Immortals was the one to take down Puss in Boots as the number one movie as it grossed $32 million, but I was surprised to see it slip to third and that Adam Sandler’s latest comedy, Jack and Jill just squeezed on by into the number two spot with a strong $25 million opening weekend. I guess guys in drag is still funny to most people. Of course, this is all going to change this coming weekend.

1) Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 1 – A vampire knocks up a human chick and ticks off a bunch of wussie werewolves.

For the same reason that comic book movies do so well during their run, so do these teenie bopper suck fests (pun intended). Because their target audience is so enamored with the characters, that they’ll see the movie multiple times. Every girl between 13 and 30 this weekend will likely see this movie a half dozen times and think it’s the greatest thing ever. I would rather shoot myself in the face. But no matter what my silent protest would do, this movie will still claim the number one spot with ease. I’m sorry, I was raised to be afraid of vampires and werewolves.

 

2) Happy Feet Two – The dancing penguins from the first movie return and look to help a little penguin find his groove while also protecting their frozen home from a new threat.

Being a kid’s movie, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was able to steal the number two spot because another key movie audience, little kids and dragged along parents, will see this over the teen angst vampire garbage above. An all-star voice cast featuring Elijah Wood and Robin Williams highlights a movie that fans of the first will likely enjoy just as much. Don’t expect me dancing my way out of the theatre though. Although I’d still see this sooner than Twilight.
