Fall Movie Challenge - Week 9

Week 9 has me joining Ray in the $300m club while Joseph makes the biggest splash of the week with Skyfall bringing in $117m for the week of November 9-15 sending him from $54m to a more respectable $175m.

Conventional wisdom would lead you to believe that Jorge is in danger of dropping down to #5 with Skyfall expecting to bring in another $50m+ next week but Jorge has a little movie called The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 to help him quite nicely.  Not only should the movie help Jorge pull away from Joseph but it will vault him over Larry and myself while challenging Ray for the #1 spot.

The following week will be interesting as everyone has a movie releasing at the same time.  Ray has Rise of the Guardians (which looks like it can open big), Larry has Life of Pi, Joseph has the Red Dawn remake and I have Silver Linings Playbook.  But there's a serious chance that none debut at #1 because of possible huge 2nd week business for Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Things are starting to get interesting.  Stay tuned!
