Despicable MeDespicable Me: (Los Angeles Times) — Universal Pictures first attempt at computer animation and the supply of 20th Century Fox to revive “predators” are both addressed the good openings, but “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” again should emerge the winner of this order week at the box office.

The animation “Negligible Me” is set to open at about $ 35 million in ticket sales in the U.S. and Canada, according to people who have seen pre-release audience vote, while “Predators” will probably start with about $ 25 million. Both are good but not sensational debut given the costs of the films.

“Eclipse”, meanwhile, has been following a little behind “last November’s The Twilight Saga: New Moon” in the weekday grosses. Ticket sales on Tuesday and Wednesday were $ 10,600,000 and $ 8.8 million, respectively, compared with $ 11,300,000 and $ 14,200,000 in the same days of the week after New Moon “debuted. On Wednesday “New Moon” was the day before Thanksgiving – giving an advantage comparable – but the distributor Summit Entertainment had hoped “Eclipse” would surpass the previous “Twilight” the movie during the week because he is playing in the summer when many young fans go to school and could go to a matinee. That does not seem to be happening so far.

“Eclipse” has grossed $ 195,700,000 in its first eight days, compared with $ 205,800,000 for “New Moon” in the same period.

People who closely follow the expected box office results that “Eclipse” is gross about $ 40 million this weekend, similar to what “New Moon” did in its second weekend in theaters. Moreover, the new film opens in 23 foreign markets this weekend, including France, Britain and South Korea.

“Negligible Me” looks like it will work well in comparison with other recent animated films are not sequels and not from established studios like DreamWorks Animation and Pixar. “The Princess and the Frog” for Disney Animation Studios, which has been a drop in box office, opened at $ 24 million in December, while Sony Pictures Animation meatballs Rain “opened to $ 30 million in September.

“Negligible Me” is the first film of Entertainment Lighting, a company founded by former Fox executive Chris Meledandri to produce family films for Universal. Encouraged by a study in France as an employment contract, “negligible” costs about $ 70 million, less than half the cost of Pixar and DreamWorks Animation films.

Like “cloudy”, “despicable Me” is published in 3-D, which will increase its box office potential. 1551 Universal Predatorsbooked cinemas with 3-D screens for the film. That’s about 800 less than recent films like “Shrek Forever After” which opened without any other 3-D images on the market, but “despicable Me” comes amid a traffic jam in 3-D in theaters, with “The Last Airbender” and “Toy Story 3″ is playing.

It has been 20 years since “Predator 2″, although human-hunting foreigners also appeared in “Alien vs Predator” movies in 2004 and 2007. Fox revival of the series was produced by Robert Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios and the study of costs and funding partner Dune Entertainment about $ 40 million.

Polls indicate that the new film will be based primarily a male crowd evenly mixed among younger men who are new to “predators” and the old who remember the 1987 original starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
