Weekend Predictions: 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters', 'Movie 43' & 'Parker'

Featured Stories - on January 23, 2013 by BOXOFFICE Staff

jan25.pngComing off of last weekend's 4-day MLK holiday, things should be a bit slower this weekend as Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Movie 43 and Parker make their way into theaters.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters


- Jeremy Renner's recent box office successes might give it some needed appeal.
-  The recognizable name could pull in viewers.


- The R rating will push away teen audiences and families that otherwise go to these fairy tale-inspired movies.
- The number of adult-driven / R-rated movies in the market will limit the film's potential. 
- Twitter buzz has been trailing that of last summer's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Movie 43


- A large ensemble of known actors could pique the interest of audiences.
- This is the first bona fide comedy to release since Christmas. 


- The obscure title.
- Marketing has struggled to sell the seemingly erratic, plot-less concept behind the movie. 



- Jason Statham boasts a consistent box office history, albeit a humble one. The addition of Jennifer Lopez could help as well.
- Marketing has been consistent and the comedy/action hybrid might sell with male audiences. 


- Statham's not known for box office breakouts.
- Competition for adult audiences is still very stiff.

Check out our predictions for these films and the remainder of the top 11 in the table below.

Vineyards and wineries are to be found all along Route 5 and Route 20, and the area is home to one of the oldest wineries in Pennsylvania. But what you might not know is that this area owes a large part of its survival to grape juice. Not wines or jellies, but simple grape juice. And the story behind this is intriguing.[Read full article]
