Two new movies hit theaters this weekend, one of them a mushroom trip... ahem, a fantasy movie.

Alice in Wonderland
Why it might be a hit: Tim Burton and Alice in Wonderland, it seems like a perfect match. Also, with the success of Avatar in 3D, we are looking for something new. Oh yeah, Johnny Depp is also in this movie, which might help a bit. This movie has all the studio exec's seeing dollar signs.
Why it might tank: Tim Burton's last few films haven't been all that special.

Brooklyn's Finest
Why it might be a hit: Vying for a completely different target audience from Alice in Wonderland.
Why it might tank: Marketing for Alice in Wonderland completely overshadows any noise this film can make.

My Predictions:
Alice in Wonderland: $85 million
Shutter Island: $14 million
Cop Out: $9 million
The Crazies: $8 million
Avatar: $8 million
