It’s Salt vs Inception at the Box Office This Weekend
Written under: Entertainment
After taking the number 1 spot at the box office with $62.8 million on its first weekend, “Inception” will have a new competition this coming weekend with the Angelina Jolie movie, “Salt”.
Critics and surveys are looking at a possible $40 million for the female spy thriller film but if you base it on previous Jolie hits such as “Wanted” and “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”, it could very well be more than that.
“Salt” was originally written with a male lead until the producers decided that a female heroine would bring more character to the story.
The new Angelina Jolie shows her as a CIA intrigue who is accused of being a Russian double agent. “Salt” is directed by Phillip Noyce and stars Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor along with Jolie.
