LUCY TO TAKE ON HERCULES AT BOX OFFICE

July 25, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

It’ll be Lucy vs Hercules at the box office this weekend and when the battle is over, Lucy will emerge the winner. That’s the prediction of most box-office analysts. They’re crediting an intriguing trailer for the movie (what if people were able to use more than the 10 percent of the brain that — according to legend, — they now do?) for lifting interest in the R-rated Luc Besson movie, which stars Scarlett Johansson. On the other hand, there has already been one Hercules movie this year, Renny Harlin’s The Legend of Hercules, and it flopped. The new film, from Paramount, stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and has a bigger budget but word is that the film received a lousy reception from audiences at preview screenings. It was not shown in advance to film critics. Both films are expected to end up with around $20-25 million.
