Superbad, The Superhero?
Five films are opening wide this weekend but none is expected to unseat Superbad from the top of the box office. The Judd Apatow comedy is expected to gross about $18-22 million, according to analyst, while the Jet Li/Jason Stratham action movie War is likely to come in a close second with $16-20 million. The Nanny Diaries, starring Scarlett Johansson, is expected to vie for third place with Mr. Bean's Holiday, starring Rowan Atkinson. Each is expected to debut with about $7-10 million. Analysts say that the relatively low-budget Resurrecting the Champ, starring Josh Hartnett and Samuel L. Jackson, will not take in more than $5 million.
