Opening at #2 was Julia RobertsEat Pray Love, which pulled in $8.5 million for the Ryan Murphy-directed tale.

Michael Cera-starrer Scott Pilgrim vs. The World barely pulled in $4.5 million its opening day.

I’d rather see five of Stallone’s movies in a row than 10 minutes of Eat Pray and Look at me ‘movie’…an opinion

# 2

Angelina alone made better opening weekend $36,011,243 then all these old men so-called action stars $35,000,000

# 3

sav, we won’t know the full weekend total until tomorrow. And this is a battle between EPL and The Expendables. Stop throwing Angelina in someone else’s battle. We all know Salt is A HIT!!

# 4

@sav: actually this movie hasn’t been promoted like salt either! the final will be the profit! anyway this is a real action movie! YES!

# 5

@Shar: @Shar: actually salt isn’t exactly a hit – average at the box office hopefully this weekend will reach 100 million in the us – salt was never the number 1 movie! even opening with no other major movie and the next weekend a comedy.

# 6

@yes:

You don’t have to be number 1 at the box office to be considered a hit. I

# 7

I figured Eat Pray Love wouldn’t be huge. It can still be a hit it’s just that in order for a chick flick to be huge you need a hot guy and a likable girl. Not sure this movie had either.

# 8

@yes: A movie does not have to open at #1 to be a hit idiot, and while it will make over $100 million by Sunday, i was counting the overseas gross (which hasn’t opened in most European countries yet ) along with the domestic gross. But this weekend is about The Expendables, EPL and Scott Pilgram, not Salt.

# 9

@Shar:
It is difficult to compare two movies that are completely different. EPL and The Expendables have only one thing in common and that is the same opening weekend. You can not expect EPL to win at Box office. It is not that kind of a movie.

@yes:
Go back to JA thread, please.

@Shar: uneducated? name calling like a child. Still Salt isn’t a HIT movie – at #9 now with Despicable Me beating it on a Friday night! How long has Despicable Me been out? That is a hit movie! Inception is a hit movie! Karate Kid is a hit movie! – per box office – bottom line PROFIT! Not saying Salt isn’t a good movie – but it isn’t a box office hit!

@sav: lol! bitter! you can say whatever but can’t take it back! typical loon.

Ugh, I was hoping this movie wouldn’t do well. Now we’re gonna get The Expendables 2, 3, and 4.

@ally: then don’t go see it!

HEY, HEY, PEOPLE.. ANGELINA PITT IS IN A LEAGUE OF HER OWN. LEAVE HER OUT OF THIS CONTEST. LETS SEE HOW EPL AND THE EXPENDABLES–DO THIS WEEKEND. WAIT UNTIL MONDAY MORNING PEOPLE. AS FOR ANGIE. 100 MILLION DOMESTICALLY IS FANTASTIC. I THINK SHE IS AVERAGING 33 MILLION PER WEEK. SHE DID IT ALL ON HER OWN., EVEN THOUGH INCEPTION WAS IN THE RUNNING. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

P.S.—I SURE HOPE THAT ANGIE AND LEO MAKE A MOVIE TOGEHTER, IN THE FUTURE. WOULDN’T THAT BE GREAT?.
BOTH OF THEM ARE SO GORGEOUS. I DON’T THINK BRAD WOULD MIND, OR MAYBE HE WOULD. I WOULDN’T BLAME HIM IF HE DID. BOTTOM LINE THE 3 OF THEM ARE GORGEOUS.

@LAURIE: sorry not pitt! jolie!

@LAURIE: 3 weeks and still hasn’t made a profit – not a hit movie

yep
You are nutty. Worry about the Turkey Baster movie will ya. With all the PR manipulation, making Aniston the poster child for whiny girl and O’Reily mate, it should come in a million dollars for the weekend.

Well ….DUH of course the Expendibles would beat out that ****** ass movie.

As it should. Don’t get me wrong, I like Julia plenty but I read the book and well I definitely do not want to waste my money watching the movie…lol. Besides Stone Cold Steve Austin >>> The Rest.

I have to say I’m rooting for this movie. Given the movies out I would probably prefer something like The Other Guys (and DEFINITELY NOT Eat Pray Love or Salt -HURRRRRRLLLLLL).
In the 80s I watched and (usually) enjoyed these movies. They were probably responsible for some of the best quality time I spent with my then husband (and I think the only thing he really ended up with in the divorce were those videos)
Hey…Where are Chuck and Jean Claude?
Say what you will about those 80s Missing in Action, Rambo, etc movies, but those big (and sometimes sexy lugs…yes I loved Dolph even though he killed Apollo Creed) always had a heart of gold. The 80s were called the “me” decade, but we just talked big (just spend a little time revisiting John Hughes films) .
It seems that NOW everyone and everything in movies is so superficial and TRULY “me” oriented. ..perfect car, house, hair…and WOW…EVERYONE can dance!

WOW– ANGELINA # 16 AND YEP# 17—–IN WHAT BIZZARRO WORLD DO YOU GUYS LIVE? 100 MILLION DOLLARS IN 3 WEEKS, IS A HIT HERE AND ANYWHERE’S IN THE WORLD. WELL, GUYS, NEXT WEEK WE ARE GOING TO SEE THE POWER OF YOU IDOL. DIDIN’T TBH MAKE 8 MILLION THE FIRST WEEK, AND THAT’S BECAUSE GERALD BUTLER WAS IN IT?. TBH NEVER REACHED THE 100 MILLION. RIGHT? THERE IS NO DOG IN— THE SWITCH, RIGHT? HAHAHAH. GUYS, STOP TALKING OUT OF YOU A*S, OK.

AS FOR CALLING ANGELINA —ANGELINA PITT THAT’S MY PREROGATIVE . BRAD AND ANGIE PITT HAVE A LOVE HUSBAND AND WIFE MERGER — NOT A BUSINESS MERGER,— LIKE HE HAD WITH DEADEND CHIN. —- . BRAD’S OWN WORDS. HAHA —–REMEMBER? GIVE IT UP GUYS IT HAS BEEN OVER 6 YEARS AND OUT OF THEIR LOVE FOR EACH OTHER THEY HAVE 6 BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN AND COUNTING. —-AND THE PITYFUL CHIN–HAS NOTHING, NADA, ZERO, AND NOW GRASPING STRAWS AT ANYTHING FOR PUBLICITY. . BILL O’REILLY ? GIVE ME A FUC*ING BREAK… SHE IS DELUSIONAL TO THE MAX.
HER PR MACHINE IS NOT WORKING, HAS NEVER WORDED, ALL THOSE MILLIONS FOR NOTHING. WHO IS GOING TO FINGER HER NEXT WEEK? BATEMAN IS MARRIED, RIGHT? HAHAHAHAHA–POOR LONELY SOUL.

@LAURIE: why are you talking about aniston? you brought up jolie – as usual for loons. i responded about the movie salt ONLY because you put salt into the mix. please, life doesn’t CENTER around these actors. i like oldie actors! your hate is going to destroy you one day. it is ok! these people don’t think about us during their down time. enjoy life! or maybe you are getting paid and that is why you just can’t let each person enjoy their success. happy for these guys!

@yeah: there goes the name calling you can tell it is a loon! lol! hope these movie does great!

Lord, still arguing about that? :\
