In another battle of comic-book characters, Cowboys and Aliens will do battle with Captain America at the box office this weekend, and most forecasters are saying that the battle is likely to be close. They’re giving the edge to the newcomer, saying that it should bring in around $40-45 million, while Captain America: The First Avenger is likely to generate about $35-40 million in ticket sales. Third place should go to The Smurfs with about $25-30 million, while the third week of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will likely end up with around $20-25 million. A third newcomer, the romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love., is not expected to do more than around $15 million in business. However, it reportedly only cost around $40 million to produce.
