Alrighty, boys and girls! Who wants to know how my predictions for last week’s new films came out? Raise your hands, now!
If you guessed that it’s time for another rip-roaring edition of DIB?, you are 100% correct! Let’s bring on the updates!
Dan in Real Life: Steve Carell and Dane Cook have gone a bit softer lately, particularly in this romantic comedy, focused on the life and family of a single father.
Will It Bomb? It looks extremely sweet. As in “rot your teeth.” It will get into the 10, but will probably end up in the lower end.
Did It Bomb? Surprisingly enough, it made it to #2 with $11.8 million in revenue. It’s still a drop in the bucket, compared to the film that hit the top spot (which I will get to in just a sec!).
Outcome: Mezza-mezza. ½ out of 2.
Saw IV: Yep, more elaborate and graphic traps come at you in the newest chapter of the Saw franchise. Don’t forget, there will also be more screams, more sleep deprivation…
Will It Bomb? It will absolutely hit the 5. It will probably take down 30 Days of Night from its #1 standing.
Did It Bomb? I don’t think so! This hit the motherload with $31.8 million and made it to #1!
Outcome: Score! 1 ½ out of 2.

Well, I’m getting back on track with these predictions. How glad am I? Thanks for joining me this week. WIB? returns later this week with a whole new batch of flicks coming to a cinema near you! Early next week, DIB? is back with all the results. I can’t wait! See you then!
