Weekend Movie Preview
Box Office Prophets says "The Holiday" will be the modest winner this weekend at the box office, followed by "Blood Diamond." It doesn't think "Apocalypto" will even beat out "Happy Feet" and "Casino Royale." Actually, no one seems to know WHAT "Apocalypto" will do. "The Passion Of The Christ" got mostly bad reviews, too, but I can't imagine conservative Christians flocking to this bloodbath. Teenagers might be the best audience for this gorefest, but they might be put off (just a tad) by the subtitles. [Note: this is a stupid comment on my part, since TV shows like "Heroes" and "Lost" may just change forever the reluctance in the US to watch movies w subtitles.] I want to see it; but then, I'm a glutton for punishment.
