Meatballs And Popcorn For Moviegoers

Subscribe Aaron Eckhart

Meatballs will reign (rain?) at the box office this weekend, box-office forecasters are predicting. The animated Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs , based on a popular children's book, is likely to rein in around $25-30 million, according to tracking surveys, which are taking into account the fact that it will benefit from premium pricing at 1,828 3D theaters, a new record for a 3D release. The figure amounts to nearly 60 percent of the 3,118 theaters showing the film. Analysts disagree on which film will be the runner-up, with most predicting that Fox's horror flick Jennifer's Body , starring Megan Fox and written by Diablo Cody, will edge out Warner Bros.' thriller The Informant!, starring Matt Damon and directed by Steven Soderbergh. Each film is expected to take in around $10-15 million. A fourth film, Love Happens , with Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart, is expected to earn $8-12 million -- but that should satisfy Universal, inasmuch as the film reportedly only cost $18 million to produce.
