After a few successful releases last weekend brought the box office back from one of its lowest points this decade, a variety of releases in different genres this weekend should keep the momentum going. The widest release is romantic comedy "My Best Friend's Girl," starring Kate Hudson and Dane Cook and it should be able to outdraw thriller "Lakeview Terrace," which will have some competition with "Righteous Kill" entering its second weekend.
In September of 2007, Lionsgate distributed "Good Luck Chuck," an R-rated romantic comedy starring Dane Cook that brought in $13.65 million its opening weekend. "My Best Friend's Girl" is also an R-rated comedy starring Dane Cook that is being distributed by Lionsgate. With an estimated 2,604 theater opening compared to the 2,612 first weekend of "Chuck," even the release size is practically the same.
