With the limited access to computers I’ll be having over this week and next this will be an abbreviated version of the Box office battle.

This week, four films hit theaters. Will any break out?

“Turbo” features the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Snoop Dogg and more. And it’s premise about a racing slug has the possibility of attracting the same kind of crowd that Pixar’s “Cars” brought in. But, it’s being released after “Monsters University” and “Despicable Me 2” and with the much more anticipated (ugh) “The Smurfs 2” still to come, one has to wonder if this will be the odd animated film left out. Still, it still should do better than say “Rise of the Guardians” but probably not by much.

Opening weekend: $30-35 million

James Wan is back with “The Conjuring”. The director of “Saw” and “Insidious” has Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga starring in this film, which is gaining a ton of buzz about how scary it is. It’s not opening in as many theaters as the other films, but this one could make a strong play for first place.

Opening weekend: $28-33 million

“RED 2” stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee, Brian Cox and Neal McDonough. But the star power won’t help this film. The first film opened to $21 million on its way to $90 million domestically and nearly $200 million worldwide. I doubt it matches those numbers domestically as many view it as an unnecessary sequel to an OK first film, though it should open around the same level.

Opening weekend: $20-25 million

Finally we have “R.I.P.D.” The presence of Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds won’t help this film escape its “Men in Black” knockoff feel and, frankly, it looks like this summer’s “Jonah Hex”. Never a good thing.

Opening weekend: $10-15 million

“RED 2” is still a couple months away, but Lionsgate isn’t waiting. The studio has hired Jon and Erich Hoeber to write “RED 3”. Mind you, the first film wasn’t that big of a hit and this one I have a feeling will bomb. But Lionsgate wants to be ready just in case. “RED 2” stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anthony Hopkins and more.

Here it is: The first trailer for Marvel Studio’s “Thor: Dark World”!

The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Bridesmaids star in Thor?

Yeah. This is kinda surprising, but could also be quite amusing. “Thor: Dark World” sees Chris Hemsworth return as Thor. Now “Bridesmaids” star Chris O’Dowd says he’s in “Thor”. Yeah. He filmed a cameo for the film. Not sure how he’d fit in, but hopefully it’s humorous. The film also stars Natalie Portman, Katt Dennings, Christopher Eccleston and Anthony Hopkins.

Since playing the Comedian in Zack Snyder’s underrated “Watchmen”, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has struggled. There was the underrated “The Losers” followed by bad films like “The Possession” and “Red Dawn”. Now he is set to get back on track by joining the film “Solace”. The film also stars Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell.

From FirstShowing.net: Hopkins will be starring as a former doctor with psychic abilities who’s recruited by a veteran FBI agent (Morgan) to track down a serial killer (Farrell). The trouble arises when the specialist realizes that the killer also has psychic abilities, meaning the two men can detect the other’s next move.

This has some potential. Hopefully it won’t quite be like “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”.

Colin Farrell has joined Anthony Hopkins in the upcoming thriller “Solace”. The film, directed by Afonso Poyart centers around a doctor who is enlisted by the police to help catch a serial killer. Peter Morgan did rewrites on the script.

After “Seven Psychopaths” and the fun “Total Recall” remake, I’m pretty high on Farrell right now.
