Long Range Forecast: 'Good Deeds,' 'Wanderlust,' 'Gone' and 'Act of Valor'

Featured Stories - on December 31, 2011 by Phil Contrino

gooddeedsforecast.pngWe've added Good Deeds, Wanderlust, Gone and Act of Valor to the Long Range Forecast this week. All four films are set to open on February 24.

Tyler Perry has a very loyal fanbase, but his most successful films tend to be the ones that feature his beloved Madea character. Good Deeds does not, and expectations are slightly cautious as a result.

Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston re-team for Wanderlust, a new comedy from David Wain (Role Models). Wanderlust will try to reverse the trend of films that grapple with job loss bombing at the box office by presenting a comedic take.

Amanda Seyfried will try to carry a film on her own with Gone, a thriller that should do well among females but will have a tough time crossing over to males.

Act of Valor is exactly the kind of action flick that can turn into a surprise hit early in the year. Keep an eye on this one.

Check out our predictions in the table below.
