Movies opening this coming weekend (May 30):
ANGELINA JOLIE's "Maleficient" looks to be the clear winner this weekend at the box office. Industry observers expect it to clear around $60 million, since it's opening in nearly four-thousand theatres with lots of 3D screenings.
Second place should go to "X-Men: Days of Future Past," with SETH MacFARLANE'sA Million Ways to Die in the West” in third place.
Reviews for both Angelina's and Seth's new movies are hit-and-miss, so we'll have see what actually makes the cut. Angelina needs her film to be a hit --it cost a reported $180 million to make. Seth also needs his movie to be a hit --it's his first starring role.
