‘Miss Congeniality 2,’ ‘Guess Who’ to duel at box office

Easter weekend brings two new comedies to theaters, Warner Bros.’ Sandra Bullock sequel “Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous,” which opens today in 3,183 theaters, and Sony’s family comedy “Guess Who,” unspooling in 3,147 venues on Friday. Fox Searchlight, meanwhile, is expanding Woody Allen’s “Melinda and Melinda” to 92 screens after its release last week on a solo screen in New York City. With high interest among female audiences, “Congeniality 2” may end up hurting the second week of the “Ring” sequel, which on opening weekend attracted an audience that was around two-thirds female. A 50% drop in “Ring’s” second week would give it around $17 million this weekend. Meanwhile, laffer “Guess Who,” loosely based on the classic “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” and starring Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mac, is finding its strongest appeal among Kutcher’s young fans, who helped push “Just Married” to a $17.5 million opening in 2003.
