The Weekend Freeze: Can ‘Zathura’ be ‘Derailed’?

WeinsteinCo. is looking to derail Disney’s Chicken Little (review) with their Clive Owen thriller Derailed, which opens in 2,150 theaters. But the show in for this weeks victory is Sony’s sequel to Jumanji entitled Zathura, which opens in 3,000+ theaters. Paramount Pictures’ Get Rich or Die Tryin’ hit 1,500 theaters this Wednesday, but can it hold up as well as everybody thinks? The real treat is Magnolia’s limited release of Pulse (review), which only opens in a single theater in NY. Hopefully it’ll expand in the next few weeks. The best movie out right now, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (review), is expanding to 90+ theaters. Looks like you all have some serious decision making at hand…
