Box Office Preview: Awake

by at . Comments

Which new movie do we think will fare the best this weekend? Take a look below:

What's It All About: Hayden Christensen (pictured here with Terrence Howard) plays a victim of anesthetic awareness, a phenomenon in which a patient remains conscious but paralyzed under anesthesia. While in this state, he hears his surgeons plotting to murder him and pretend his death was the result of complications. Jessica Alba stars as Christensen's wife.
Why It Might Do Well: Being this week's only new wide release can only bode well.
Why It Might Not Do Well: Enchanted still has legs enough to pull off a second week in the topspot, so look for Awake to place second.
Number of Theaters: 2,000
