Box Office Review: Expendables Not Expendable!
The Expendables has legs, albeit creaky and wobbly ones. The Sly Stallone actioner hauled in $16.5M ($64.8M) to hold off shitty newcomer Vampires Suck ($12.2M | $18.5M). In close succession after that it was the silly Eat Pray Love ($12M | $47.1M), the mediocre Lottery Ticket ($11.1M), the okay The Other Guys ($10.1M | $88.1M) and the nude-tastic Piranha 3D ($10M).
After that was the unwanted sequel, Nanny McPhee Returns ($8.3M), the latest Jen Aniston disaster, The Switch ($8.1M), the stellar Inception ($7.6M | $261.8M) and the very funny and hopelessly screwed Scott Pilgrim Saves the World ($5M | $20.7M). In limited release, the searing The Tillman Story ($13,100 per theater) and A Film Unfinished ($9,375 per) both did well.
