A bit late this month due to Adam and Anthony’s respective vacations and/or adventures to California, but the August movie preview is here. The fellas take a look at the most intriguing cinematic offerings of the month. Can Neil Blomkamp turn Elysium into a critical and commercial hit, like he did with District 9, with a big studio and a $100 million budget behind behind him? (Lordy we hope so.) Is the fellas’ unbridled excitement for Simon Pegg’s latest venture warranted? (Yes. Yes it is.) What the hell is happening with centaurs and Percy Jackson? (No effing clue.) And is it strange how excited Adam is for The Spectacular Now? (Again, yes. A thousand times yes.)

But this month there is an added twist: for all most major movies, the fellas will throw out their admittedly rough predictions for opening weekend box office numbers. (Early results are not too great.) Make sure to check back throughout the month for updated numbers. (All numbers in millions of dollars.)
