Speed Racer

Warner Brothers

Speed Racer hits theaters this weekend, and despite some of the most amazing visual effects in the history of the movies, it'll be tough for the latest TV show-turned-movie to find a huge audience.

One problem: The younger kids that the film's geared toward aren't too familiar the stars (Emile Hirsch, Christina Ricci, John Goodman) or the '60s anime series. Beyond that, Racer has to deal with Iron Man's second weekend. Even if Robert Downey Jr.'s red-hot hero flick falls off 50 percent (which would be huge), it'd still make $50 million.

So look for Speed to clock in at No. 2 this weekend with $41 million.
