Summer Slinks Out At Box Office

Subscribe to Disney alerts

It will seem like a typical August weekend at the box office when four films with little chance of drawing big crowds arrive to compete with the likes of Snakes on a Plane and Talladega Nights. Of the four, Disney's Mark Wahlberg football flick Invincible is being given the best chance for success, while New Line will be countering Snakes with How to Eat Fried Worms. Universal throws the Outkast musical Idlewild into the mix, while Warner Bros. has Beerfest on tap. Analysts are predicting that Invincible may earn just over $10 million, while the other three will probably end up with less than $10 million. The weekend will also see the expansion of Fox Searchlight's Little Miss Sunshine expanding to 1,430 screens. Last weekend, playing on fewer than half that number, the film drew the highest per-screen average of any film in general release and came in at No. 10.
