Cinematically Speaking - 6/27/12

All indications are that Brave will be able to hold on to the #1 spot next week too, but that Ted and Magic Mike will be duking it out for #2. Both of those movies are tracking in the $20's. Madea's Witness Protection might get to $20 million as well. People Like Us is tracking way low.

July's going to be an interesting month. The Amazing Spider-Man won't do near the business The Avengers did, but Sony can expect better dividends than Green Lantern. We have seen competition cannibalize some titles lately, but after Spidey, Ice Age 4 is relatively unopposed, then next week The Dark Knight Rises is relatively unopposed, and the week after that, you have The Watch (which I had higher hopes for box-office-wise until I saw the trailer and that it's rated R) going against Step Up 4.

Rumor has it Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner will both star in the fifth Bourne movie.  I approve.  The Bourne Legacy, which stars Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Albert Finney, Joan Allen and not Damon, opens August 10.
