Long Range Forecast: 'Hop,' 'Source Code' and 'Insidious'

Featured Stories - on February 05, 2011 by Phil Contrino

hopforecast.pngThis week, we've added four new releases to our Long Range Forecast. Hop, Source Code and Insidious are all set to open on April 1.

With Hop, Universal will try to mirror the success they had last summer thanks to Despicable Me. The animated flick will be a no-brainer for family audiences and it should hold up well during the spring.

Source Code will represent a crucial test for Jake Gyllenhaal as a leading man. He wasn't able to deliver serious results with Prince of Persia or Love and Other Drugs. If he misses with Source Code, then his star power could begin to fade considerably.

Insidious will appeal to the same horror junkies that devoured the Saw franchise. Patrick Wilson comes with some clout among the "fanboy" crowd thanks to his performance in Watchmen, so Insidious could turn into a minor sleeper hit.

Check out our predictions for these films as well as others in the table below.
