There are three wide releases opening next weekend, one of which is estimated to open in 3,000 theaters. That film is What's Your Number?, which may or may not be the number one film next weekend. What I can tell you is that it is the target film in this week's box office prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for What's Your Number?.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a copy of Ferris Bueller's Day Off on Blu-ray.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win a copy of Four Weddings and a Funeral on Blu-ray.

Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

It's a terrible week for new DVD and Blu-ray releases with no first run releases of note. There's not even an abundance of limited releases, TV on DVD releases, or catalogue releases to pick up the slack. The best-selling release according to Amazon.com is 13 Assassins on Blu-ray and it is also arguably the best. It's really the only competitor for Pick of the Week.
