There will be no “Star Wars” news or panel of any kind from Comic-Con. Disney did confirm, however, that “Star Wars Episode VII” will have a “presence” at D23, which happens Aug. 9-11. People are expecting casting announcements, including the much rumored return of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher as Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. No concrete details have been released but the J.J. Abrams directed film will begin production in early 2014 so news has to come soon.

$38.1 million might not seem that high. But for actor Tom Cruise, “Obliviion” opened to that number and it’s a significant one. That’s Cruise’s highest opening for any movie since “Mission Impossible III” way back in 2006. There’s a little asterisk here because “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” would have been higher, but the studio showed it in IMax a week earlier than its wide release date, but this is still big. The film, which also stars Morgan Freeman, is also a solid opening for director Joseph Kosinski (“Tron: Legacy”). Of course, it didn’t have any new competition, which allowed “42”, with Harrison Ford, to earn $18 million. The Jackie Robinson biopic now has earned $54.1 million.

Here’s what we know about Disney’s plans for “Star Wars”. “Star Wars Episode VII” is going to be directed by J.J. Abrams and come out in 2015. Original cast members Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill are rumored to be coming back. Thankfully George Lucas won’t be too involved. Now comes some new news. Episode VII will hit theaters in the summer of 2015. After that, expect a Star Wars film EVERY summer, with films alternating between the new trilogy and the stand alone films. This seems a bit excessive to me, but I guess Disney’s trying to really shove their new found property down our throats. A while back there was a rumor that Zack Snyder may direct one of them. That has been shot down, but I’d still like to see him get a crack at it.

Critics may not have been in love with the film, but the Jackie Robinson biopic “42” performed well. The film opened at No. 1 earning $27.7 million, by far the highest opening for a baseball movie. And it received an A+ score from audiences, meaning it could have great legs. The film stars Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford, Nicole Beharie, Christopher Meloni, Andre Holland, Lucas Black, Hamish Linklater, Ryan Merriman and T.R. Knight,

“Scary Movie V” opened in second place with less than half the opening weekend of “Scary Movie 4”. Despite featuring Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan, the film opened to $15 million, even lower than Marlon Wayans “A Haunted House”.

A week after “Evil Dead” comes the return of the horror spoof comedy that started it all, “Scary Movie V”. And just in time for baseball season comes “42”. Which will come out on top?

Back in 2000, “Scary Movie” surprised a lot of people grossing more than $150 million. Fast forward to 2013 and spoof movies…frankly are worse in quality and, for studios, worse in box office receipts. Marlon Wayans (Formerly from the Scary Movie franchise) saw “A Haunted House” open to $18 million and finish with $40 million. “Scary Movie 5” has seen franchise vets like Anna Faris move on but Simon Rex is back and Ashley Tisdale is joining him. Plus there’s those appearances from Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan. Still, it’s tough to see this faring any better.

Opening weekend: $15-20 million

I’m surprised its being released now, but “42”, the story of Jackie Robinson hits theaters as well. It has Oscar bait written all over it, though reviews haven’t been that enthusiastic. “Moneyball”, which starred Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, was very successful, opening to $19 million on its way to more than $75 million. But that was in the height of Oscar season. I’m not sure people will flock to see this one. Harrison Ford has been heavily prominent in marketing, but let’s face it, other than the universally hated “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, what’s the last hit he’s had?

Opening weekend: $10-15 million
