Footloose vs The Thing

Two 1980's remakes battle (I know The Thing is a prequel to the 1984 movie), and a star studded comedy battle some Real Steel this weekend.

Footloose
Hit Factor: Lots of marketing... Looks like a Step Up sequel, prequel or the like, and that franchise has surprisingly done pretty well.
Flop Factor: I grew up with the original Footloose and don't really want to see a remake.



The Thing
Hit Factor: A different kind of Horror Thriller movie.
Flop Factor: For it not being a remake (but a prequel), it looks exactly like a remake.



The Big Year
Hit Factor: Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson in one movie.
Flop Factor: Seems very under marketed for a film with these big stars.



My Predictions:

Movie
Footloose
Real Steel
The Thing
The Big Year
The Ides of March
Weekend Gross (millions)
$18
$16
$12
$8
$6
