Baseball, Fish And Violence

It’s been a long time coming, but finally this weekend there are some good movie choices in the area of new to the begin screen debuts! Topping the list, if you’re looking for the family-friendly arena, there’s the based on true story Dolphin Tale. If you’re really in the mood for based on true story movies but not of the fishy variety, you might like the story of the Oakland A’s in Moneyball.  Moving to the violent variety of new movies we find two. Abduction and Killer Elite both debut this weekend too.

In the end, what will take the number one spot for the weekend box office? I believe it will be a toss up between Moneyball and Dolphin Tale.
