Ghost Town

While Lakeview Terrace will probably be the big box office winner this weekend, the film to keep an eye on is Ghost Town, British comic Ricky Gervais' first leading Hollywood role. Lakeview will win, as it's opening on about 1,000 more screens, but thanks to a loyal following—from Extras, The Office, his popular podcast and recent stand-up tour—Gervais should defy expectations.

Look for good word of mouth to propel Ghost Town to a strong $12 million opening. Think I'm wrong? Then prove it by dropping your numbers in the comments!
