Contagion Likely To Infect Box Office

Director Steve Soderbergh's Contagion is likely to knock out The Help at the box office this weekend. The disaster flick, starring Matt Damon and Gwyneth Paltrow, tops a list of our films that are opening this weekend, including the mixed-martial-arts drama Warrior, the low-budget ($10 million) Bucky Larson Born to Be a Star , and the horror film Creature. While Contagion may wind up with $25-30 million, according to box-office pundits, the other three films will be lucky to earn a third of that amount. Contagion and Warrior have each received mostly positive reviews. Bucky Larson was not screened for critics; Creature was ignored by some critics, panned by others.
