(2011)

Fellow seniors Mei (Yin Chang) and Tyler (De’Vaughn Nixon) harbor secrets, while others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds one of high school’s most seminal events. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there’s only one “Prom.” Featuring an emerging ensemble cast and a powerful soundtrack, “Prom” hits theaters April 29, 2011.

BOX OFFICE PREDICTIONS: Will ‘Thor’ Bring the Thunder This Weekend?

Looks like the weekend is Thor's to lose. The Nordic god seems to be tracking for a $60-$70 million opening. It could have perhaps done a bit better if the Universal mega-hit Fast Five wasn't presenting stiff competition at the box office for the fan boy crowd. So far reviews seem pretty positive for this action adventure.

Fast Five should rake in somewhere between $38-40 million.

BOX OFFICE BEATDOWN: ‘Fast Five’ Drives Away with $83 Million

It's been a boffo weekend for Fast Five. This big budget car sequel seems to have welcomed the summer blockbuster season into the box office. It managed to crank out a spectacular $83 million. Add in international takes and it's grossed $165 million. This is particularly impressive because this surprisingly well-reviewed crowd-pleaser has managed to top the previous entry in the series which made $71 million on opening weekend.

In other news, Rich Ross of Disney is no doubt tucking his tail between his legs after his first attempt at creating a new franchise bombed big time. Prom was an utter disaster. They had predicted a $9 million opening but instead the tween film debuted to a very disappointing $5 million. It seems this won't be getting the High School Musical sequel treatment unless a ton of girls turn out in the next week or two. Doesn't look like this one is going to last long.

BOX OFFICE PREDICTIONS: Will ‘Fast Five’ Zoom to $75 Million?

I don't know about you, but I'm a little bleary-eyed after getting up at 5:30 AM to watch the royal nuptials. Thusly, I'm not going to any movies tonight, but the rest of America probably isn't feeling quite so tired. So let's see what the Box Office Crystal Ball forecasts for our dear sweet film industry (America's royalty?) this weekend.

People are buzzing that today's take for Fast Five, the 4th sequel to The Fast and the Furious, could reach $30 million or so. WOW. I guess moviegoers are starved for some summer movie action after a few long weeks of animated movies dominating the top spot. If that information tracks, it looks like the film is poised to make at least $75 million over the weekend. Impressive because this is bigger than all the previous entries in the franchise. Get ready for a blockbuster season.
