Long Range Forecast: 'The Lucky One,' 'Think Like A Man,' 'Lockout' and 'Chimpanzee'

Featured Stories - on February 25, 2012 by Phil Contrino

luckyoneforecast.pngWe've added The Lucky One, Think Like A Man, Lockout and Chimpanzee to our Long Range Forecast. All four films are set to open on April 20.

The Lucky One looks like the strongest newcomer. While star Zac Efron is surely an asset, the film will gain even more thanks to the fact that it comes from a novel by Nicholas Sparks. Sparks is the novelist behind such hits as The Notebook and Dear John. The level of trust Sparks has earned puts him in a rare class when it comes to authors, and The Lucky One should have no problem becoming an easy date-night option.
