The Forecast, Aug. 26-28
1. The Help - $15.5 million
2. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark - $15 million
3. Rise of the Planet of the Apes - $10 million
4. Colombiana - $8 million
5. Spy Kids: All the Time in the World - $7 million
6. Our Idiot Brother - $6 million
Bar for Success
Modest movies mean low expectations, but Don't Be Afraid of the Dark still needs to open well in to the teen millions just to be respectable by supernatural horror standards. Colombiana would need over $10 million to be respectable for a late August action movie, while the bar is lowest for Our Idiot Brother, but it still will be dissed if it doesn't hit the high single digits.

So have films like Gone with the Wind, Sound of Music, Star Wars OT, etc. What I fear will be a trend is slapping 3D on films that were not shot in 3D and never intended to be 3D.

Personally I wish Titan AE would get the 3D treatment... especially since the majority of the brilliantly lavish Don Bluth animation is done with CG elements in the first place. (I'd also love to see the deleted and unfinished segments restored, as they really did add a lot to the story)
