Weekend Box Office #48
A couple of interesting films coming out wide this weekend, and one dumb-looking one.
3:10 TO YUMA (2652 theaters). I know a couple of guys who have seen this already, one more than once, and they both rave about it. It probably won't open huge, but it should hold well. Call it $18.7 million opening weekend.
SHOOT 'EM UP (2108 theaters). Nice descriptive title, good cast. Probably split the audience a bit with Yuma, but it should do around $13.5 million for the weekend.
THE BROTHERS SOLOMON (700 screens). The reviews aren't good, and it's hard to believe Will Arnett has enough diehard fans to make this a hit. $1.7 million.
