Green Zone Expected To Be Short On Green

Green Zone reteams director Paul Greengrass and actor Matt Damon who together churned out the last two Bourne hits, but box-office forecasters are predicting that the movie is not likely to produce anything like the blockbuster earnings of their previous collaborations. The Los Angeles Times 's "Projector" column today (Friday) predicted that the movie "is on track to be the latest film about the Iraq war to disappoint at the box office." In all four new films are due to crowd the marquees this weekend, including Remember Me , starring Robert Pattinson, the heartthrob star of the Twilight movies, but none of them is expected even to come close to doing the kind of business that Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is expected to do. Today's Hollywood Reporter said that Alice is likely to fall about 50 percent from last weekend, when it took in $116 million. Green Zone , by contrast, is expected to open with about $20-30 million, according to some forecasters; $15-16 million, according to others.
