Action films have tried and failed to surpass The Dark Knight at the box office over the last few weeks.
This weekend, more light-hearted fare will attempt to dethrone The Joker and company. Let's take a closer look at the main two films opening nationwide...
Stars: Seth Rogen, James Franco
Quick synopsis: Two pot heads witness a murder and go on the run.
Prediction: A solid second place finisher, but an R-rated comedy won't have the drawing power to take over the top spot.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2
Stars: Blake Lively, America Ferrera, Alexis Bledel, Amber Tamblyn
Quick synopsis: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants return for more young female bonding.
Prediction: A niche movie, but one with a strong cast. Will finish third at the box office.
