Weekend Movies: 3/30 – 4/1

March 30, 2012 Leave a comment

Well the whole country has gone mad with Mega Millions fever, which at last count was up to a staggering $640 million jackpot, but let’s not forget there are two new wide-releases in theaters this weekend.

“Mirror Mirror” hits 3,603 locations and stars Julia Roberts in an adaptation of the classic “Snow White.” It’s hovering right above 50% on Rotten Tomatoes and hasn’t had much buzz to speak of. I’ve only seen a few television ads for the film, but as a late-20’s guy, my TV channels are probably not on the film’s targeted list.

“Wrath of the Titans” invades 3,545 locations and features of a variety of Hollywood stars. The film is a follow-up to the 2010 movie “Clash of the Titans,” which actually fared quite well at the box office, netting $61 million in its opening weekend. “Wrath” is not expected to do anywhere near that number, but still could bring in $35m+ this weekend.

Here are what the major prognosticators are projecting for the two films.

Mirror Mirror
Box Office Follower – $24m
Box Office Guru – $20m
HSX Whisper Number – $21m
Weekend Warrior – $24.8m
BoxOffice.com – $24m
FilmGo – $16m
Movie Critic Assassins – $21m

Wrath of the Titans
Box Office Follower – $32m
Box Office Guru – $36m
HSX Whisper Number – $35m
Weekend Warrior – $40.8m
BoxOffice.com – $37.5m
FilmGo – $36m
Movie Critic Assassins – $41m

My personal predictions are $21.9m for “Mirror Mirror” and $37.7m for “Wrath of the Titans.”

My intrade positions are as follows:

$76 trading profit so far on positions I initiated then sold out of.

Mirror Mirror
$17.5m -5 @ 85.0
$20.0m -5 @ 72.5
$22.5m -5 @ 60.0
$25m -3 @ 55.2

Wrath
$40.0m -2 @ 69.0
$45.0m -8 @ 55.8
$60.0m -5 @ 15.4
