DiCaprio spy weekend box office victory

Director Ridley Scott’s Warner Bros. release should fetch up to $20 million during the three days beginning Friday. Also new in theaters is “The Express,” which will score in the mid-teen-millions. The Dennis Quaid football drama will vie for second place with last weekend’s champ, “Beverly Hills Chihuahua.”

One big unknown: How the downbeat news on the economy will affect moviegoers’ film choices. Neither “Body” nor “Express” is escapist fare on the order of Disney’s “Chihuahua,” which opened to $29 million last weekend.

Produced for less than $70 million, “Body of Lies” stars DiCaprio as a CIA agent in the Middle East, and Crowe as his slippery boss back in the States. Despite the star power, the film must try to distance itself from such unsuccessful releases as “Rendition,” “Redacted,” and “In the Valley of Elah.”

Prerelease tracking indicates that must-see interest is almost as strong among females as among males, with the title likely to skew just a bit toward older audiences.

Warners is supporting “Body” with an aggressive media campaign amid promising early reviews, prompting the studio’sdistribution president Dan Fellman to confide he’s “looking forward to a victory at the boxoffice this weekend.” miss thickness, mother seduces son, free mother son stories, deceased mother poems, watch csi season 9 episodes 1,2,3,4,5,6,7
