3 hours ago

With the Summer movie season around the corner, the final weekend of April has three fairly modest movies reaching theaters.

Meanwhile, Brick Mansions and The Quiet Ones probably won't reach $10 million.At 3,204 locations, comedy The Other Woman should see solid attendance from female audiences.

One exception to that is The Fault in Our Stars, which is a romantic drama based off the popular John Green novel.
