Will It Bomb? 3/21/08

Happy Thursday, everybody! As always, the new releases are unleashed on the world tomorrow, so it’s time to talk a little bit about them! Are they worth the money? Are they worth your time? I’m ready to tell you!

Welcome to an ever-so-informative installment of WIB?! Let’s get started!

Drillbit Taylor: With Seth Rogen co-writing the screenplay and Owen Wilson being front and center, moviegoers might not know what hit them! Three high school kids are desperate to hire a bodyguard for protection against the cool kids. The man they end up hiring poses as a teacher as well to impress a lady!
Will It Bomb? While the recent publicity has been less than flattering, I don’t see why this would completely tank. I’m thinking it’ll get at least the center of the Top 10, with a possibility of hitting #5.

Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns: Oh, Angela Bassett, I miss those days when your roles were nice and meaty… You played Tina Turner, for pete’s sake! In yet another adaptation of a Tyler Perry play, Bassett plays a single mom who learns of the death of the father she never knew and trots on down to Georgia to meet the rest of the family. Expect an appearance by Perry as Madea, as well as former Boston Celtic Rick Fox in a supporting role!
Will It Bomb? It seems that Perry’s films have the golden touch, so let’s just say that this one will as well, if only for just one weekend. It will land in the Top 5; I can feel it.

Shutter: Another remake of another Asian horror film? I can’t take it anymore! This one stars former Dawson‘s Creek-er Joshua Jackson, who finds that pictures taken by himself and his wife have ghosts showing up in them. You can imagine that nothing is as it seems, as well where this will probably go.
Will It Bomb? Eh … The trailer was pretty vague, but since it’s a remake, I doubt there will be that much of a cinematic stretch. Bottom line? This will probably hole up somewhere in the middle-to lower end of the 10.

OK, people! That’s all for me for this week! Come on back after the weekend to find out if my predictions panned out over at the official companion column known as Did It Bomb?! Have a great weekend!

    Does anyone else think Shutter is just a little too close to “Say Cheese and Die,” the old Goosebumps book?
