Weekend Predictions -- The Help Leads the Way, while other catch up.

Editors Note: Weekend predictions is a new article branch that wouldn't always be available, or shown online. Sometimes they will be available other times no. Don't expect continuous weekly weekend predictions.

None of the four newcomers hitting theaters this weekend will be able to dethrone The Help. With a a 93% approval rating from more than 16,000 Flixster users, The Help is poised to gross over $100 million. As of 4 p.m. PT, is reporting that The Help has 31% of daily sales. Expect it to gross over $21 million.

Lionsgate's Conan the Barbarian looks like the strongest newcomer. Fans of the Expendables, which made a massive hit last August, would be pleased by Conan the Barbarian but critics think other wise. Conan the Barbarian is outpacing The Expendables on Facebook, but it is behind on Twitter. Fandango is reporting that Conan the Barbarian has yet to crack the top five sellers list. Chances are online sales will pick up on Thursday as more Conan fans plan for the weekend.
Conan the Barbarian should manage $16-17 million from 3,105 location

Without any interesting news from concerning Spy Kids 4, look for All the Time in the World to grab $15.5 million from around 3,000 locations.

Fright Night will try to win some audience after the disparaged and besmirched reputation from Vampire Movies- Twilight saga. Males wouldn't be interested any more, but may catch some disturbia fans due to the similarities.There's no sign of Fright Night on the top ten daily sellers list on Fandango.
Fright Night aims at $14.8 million from around 2,900 locations.

Newcomer One day hasn't entered much spot light, starting with critics castigating its lack of  emotion, depth, or insight of its bestselling source material to little sales on Fandago. But there may still be hope as 82% on rotten tomatoes wish to see it. Expect it to gross $6.2 million.
