Default Battle: Los Angeles Opening Weekend

Ho much everyone think Battle: Los Angeles is going to open to this weekend? I'm thinking 40 to 45 mil. I read the review on Comingsoon.net, it seems the movie has the script problems people talked about on here.

this is a hard one for me to guess. seems like people that are most excited about it are people online. i've seen a bunch of twitter and facebook status and comments more along the lines of "another alien invasion movie...really?"

i'll probably check it out, but it's not like i have my calendar marked or anything.

Trailers with basically no dialogue featured usually turn out to be really good films.

I'm seeing it. It will be my first trip to theatre since GREEN HORNET (I watch a lot of DVD/Netflix).

I'm not really worried about the script for this film. I just want to see some awesome action scenes.

But, I think it will perform strongly as, IMHO, the first big blockbluster of the year and should exceed $50m. The hype is here in Australia for the release next week.

I'm excited.

Yea I can see $50 mill opening weekend....ain't no other competition. If it sucks then the following week will have about a 60% decrease. I'll probably see it for the hell of it...

For Ebert's review linked above --

This made me LOL:

They seem to be animal/machine hybrids with automatic weapons growing from their arms, which must make it hard to change the baby.
