Any weekend where a movie has a chance to break box office records is an interesting weekend. That's the case for the vomit inducing The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which definitely has a chance at breaking The Dark Knight's opening day. It's weekend may be a bigger challenge; yet, if the rabid tween fans go back for 2nds, 3rds and 4ths before the weekend is out, it has a chance.
Elsewhere, The Blind Side and Planet 51 look to scrounge up whatever's left from Twilight's devouring. Sandra Bullock's name should be enough to make TBS a relative success, but Planet 51 will remain overshadowed by the other films, as well as A Christmas Carol.
Next week is a 5-dayer: Old Dogs, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Road and Ninja Assassin
