Bet On Boffo B.O. For Big Battlin’ ‘Bots

{mosimage} How big do Hollywood insiders expect astf to be? Big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindboggingly big they think it will be. According to always in-the-know Nikki Finke of the Deadline Hollywood Daily blog, studio sources are postulating the flick could top the opening takes of the blockbuster sequels to Spider-Man and Pirates of the Caribbean, to the tune of as much as $175 million for the 5-day weekend. Paramount is likely to try to lower those expectations slightly (they don't want to disappoint if the picture doesn't quite reach those numbers), but Finke believes it will still end up north of $160 million.

Either way, no one expects too many empty seats in movie theatres that last week of June. For the full story, check out Deadline Hollywood Daily.
