And Fox lately (at least since 2003) has had a family film do well in December (Cheaper By The Dozen, Fat Albert, Cheaper By The Dozen 2, Night At The Museum, Alvin and The Chipmunks). Lately, the trailer has been appearing with some major Thanksgiving releases and should appeal to couples and families (similar to this summer's Wall-E but not as big).

True. But look at BHC. No stars, lots of dogs, almost $100 million in the dead of October.

I don't think Hotel For Dogs will be a hit of any kind, but I do think it'll cut into Marley's legs come January.

I still have no idea how big Marley will be, I think it's already getting lost in the shuffle. Bedtime Stories will steal it's kid/family audience, and there's a lot of other choices for couples (Yes Man/Despereaux/Bedtime on the comedic side and Seven Pounds/Benjamin Button/Spirit/DTESS on the more action-serious side)

Actually, Beverly Hills Chihuahua had Drew Barrymore. Though it wasn't mentioned in the ads, she voiced the lead character.

Exactly, in the dead of October. Now there is too much competition.

Oh I didn't know Marley and Me was Fox. Its hitting the $100 million mark. I will not get tricked up by this three years in a row.

And Nickelodeon movies usually make $70-90 million. Their only movie since 2003 to make under that range was Yours, Mine, and Ours.

P.S.: I hope that Bedtime Stories will surpass even the 200 mark and maybe The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Doubt and Revolutionary Road, maybe even The Wrestler, will do even better. They just were nom'ed at Golden Globe... The American public will decide... I hope that the movie-goers will choose these instead of The Day the Earth Stood Still...
