I had predicted Horton Hears a Who would hold onto the number one spot for another week, but that honor went to the blackjack drama 21, and as much bad word of mouth spoof movies get Superhero Movie still managed to take third. Here are the weekend totals:

21: $24.1 million
2. Horton Hears a Who:$17.7 million
3. Superhero Movie:$9.5 million
5. Drillbit Taylor:$5.7 million

This weekend will see three new major releases representing the romantic comedy, family, and horror genres.

What's It All About:
George Clooney stars in and directs this romantic comedy set against the backdrop of the rise of professional football in the 1920s.
Why It Might Do Well:
Well, it's directed by Clooney, and despite the fact that every time his name comes up I feel obliged to make a crack about Batman and Robin (those wounds have yet to fully heal), his last directorial effort was the excellent Good Night and Good Luck. That film had a $7 million budget and pulled in $54.6 million worldwide.
Why It Might Not Do Well: This one should do well enough, but based on the number of theaters, I don't see this one hitting number one.
Number of Theaters:
$19 million
