Box Office Preview: Can Tim & Johnny Get Out From Under The Avengers' Shadow

Coming Soon:
The second weekend of May is sometimes thought of as having a weird jinx, because there have been a number of movies released this weekend that haven't done very well and/or outright bombed, many times because they were overshadowed by the second weekend of the much higher profile summer opener movie. A lot of times this has made opening a new movie in the top spot tough, and that's certainly going to be a problem for the week's solitary movie which has to face the second weekend of Marvel's The Avengers, the biggest opening movie of all time (by roughly $40 million). (Culture, Dark Shadows, The Avengers)

I think Dark Shadows will do alright because it's Depp and he still has his followers. I know I'll be seeing it next week. However...I believer the Avengers will still be topping the boxoffice.
