Theo James and Shailene Woodley in "Insurgent"
Hear how Binh and I did with our predictions for “Insurgent,” “The Gunman,” and “Do You Believe.” Binh was more upbeat on the latter two films, while I was more for the former. Binh tells us why he doesn’t think Shailene Woodley is a star yet, even after I reminded him that she has opened three films around the $50M range. I explained why “Chappie,” which has disappointed at the box office in the U.S., might still turn a profit when it’s all said and done. Ditto with “Penguins of Madagascar.”

Small person with a big heart gets a magical thing that helps them escape a normal life. If it’s just a rescue of a deserving underdog from an ordinary life and delivery to an extraordinary one, then The Little Mermaid is Cinderella, and Pretty Woman is Cinderella, and — to be honest? — Captain America is Cinderella. Lots of our current stories are.
