'Rush Hour 3', 'Stardust' Good Bets This Weekend

by Paul William Tenny

There are only a couple of big players opening today, the overwhelming favorite to take the weekend prize being Rush Hour 3. A lot of people will go to see it on the credit of the previous two films, and based on some of the reviews I've seen, are in for a disappointment. Everyone involved is overpaid, and production costs have gone up every single iteration of the franchise. Brett Ratner is due for a flop, only I think this one figures to be just disappointing rather than an outright financial failure.
The film based Neil Gaimen's book Stardust is opening in 2500 theaters, against Rush Hour 3's nearly 3800. Sony's comedy Daddy Day Camp which I've never heard of and have seen zero advertisements for is opening in 2300 theaters while no other film is opening in more than 800. Here's the list, and have a good weekend.

  1. 2 Days in Paris (Samuel Goldwyn)
  2. Chak DE! India (Yash Raj)
  3. Cut Sleeve Boys (Regent Releasing)
  4. Daddy Day Camp (Sony) (Wed)
  5. Dan Paris (IFC) (Wed.)
  6. Descent (City Lights Pictures Releasing)
  7. Rocket Science (Picturehouse)
  8. Rush Hour 3 (New Line)
  9. Skinwalkers (After Dark Films)
  10. Stardust (Paramount)
