Opening This Weeekend: Step Brothers, The X-Files Movie, Brideshead Revisited

by at . Comments

Do any of the movies opening this weekend have the power to take down The Dark Knight? We doubt it, as viewers have responded positively in many polls asking if they'd see the latest Batman film a second time.

Still, here's a closer look at the three flicks daring to open around the same time as the Caped Crusader...

Step Brothers
Stars: Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly
Quick synopsis: Two immature adults become step brothers. Hilarity ensues.
Prediction: Solid reviews and the mere presence of Ferrell ought to be enough for a top three finish at the box office.

The X-Files: I Want to Believe

Quick synopsis: Following in the mysterious footsteps of the TV series, film follows two agents in search of aliens. And the truth.
Prediction: It's been six years since the last film. X-Files fans may no longer be lining the streets, but we still see a second place finish for the movie.
