The Expendables 2 vs The Bourne Legacy

The Expendables 2 and a host of other films hit theaters this mid-August weekend. Will The Bourne Legacy fall to this group of commandos?

The Expendables 2
Hit Factor: 80's action nostalgia, gets upped with Jean Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris, and more Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis this time around.
Flop Factor: The Expendables wasn't exactly that great, even for a ridiculous action film.  This franchise should pin itself as cheesy and over-the-top, but still entertaining as the Fast Five.


ParaNorman
Hit Factor: From the producers of Coraline, though not the creator.
Flop Factor: Will this hit with the kids or will this be like that movie 9?


Sparkle
Hit Factor: A safe feel good movie
Flop Factor: Looks more of a film I'd wait for the DVD version.


The Odd Life of Timothy Green
Hit Factory: A weird family film.
Flop Factor: Getting over the concept, the rest looks pretty much run of the mill.
