Looking at the Weekend: Jun. 22-24, 2012

Pixar's box office prowess is potent. There's very little the likes of Abraham Lincoln can do to stop it from taking the box office crown.

Consensus

Below is a list of what we have come to a general consensus on. The number in parens represents the percentage of our contributors who agree with the statement.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter: Does anyone really want to see this?
Brave: It's Pixar, so it's bound to have appeal.
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World: It looks like an entertaining film.
To Rome With Love: You have to be a major Woody Allen fan to want to see this.

Normally, I have an interest in genre films like this, but everything the trailers have presented this far has been far from inspirational, merely gimmicky.

Thoughts

Sounds like a terrible idea with a miscast actor who sounds more like a modern politician delivering a resprise of the Gettysburg Address than the 16th President himself.

Thoughts

Not my cup of tea, and not Oscar's either.

Pixar has only once led me astray, so there is little chance I'll miss one of their films.

Thoughts

Good voice cast but the premise isn't intirguing enough for me to brave a theatre full of screaming kids. I'll wait for the DVD.

Thoughts

Pixar had an off-year last year with Cars 2, but Brave may return them to their place as one of Oscar's favorite studios.

Being excited for a Steve Carell movie is bizarre to me, but there it is. The movie looks like a great deal of fun and Carell isn't playing the buffoon, which may be why.

Thoughts

The trailer looks like fun, but a comedy about the end of the world? At least it's original.

Thoughts

Looks fun, but fun doesn't get you Oscar nominations.

Midnight in Paris may have been a good film, but this doesn't look to be on the same level of quality.

Thoughts

Something for only the most diehard Woody Allen fan.

Thoughts

Woody Allen won Oscar #4 last year, so those good graces could bring his name back into the conversation this year.
