Tower Heist

Last week, the box office prediction battle was won by Boxoffice.com. While imperfect, their predictions came closest to the actual numbers. Let's see how they'll do with this week's box office.

The new comers, this week, are the comedies Tower Heist and A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas. By virtue of it PG-13 rating, Tower Heist has the edge over Harold & Kumar's raunchy R-rated antics. Among last week's holdovers are Puss in Boots and In Time. Check below to see what the predictions are.
