Cold-blooded linebackers will knock down "Warm Bodies" at the box office this weekend, as the Super Bowl is expected to be a much bigger draw than the new zombie movie.
Super Bowl weekend is traditionally one of the slowest of the year at the multiplex, as families stay home to watch the football event Sunday instead of heading to the theater. Still, "Warm Bodies" may get off to a good start despite the competition, as the creepy romantic comedy is aimed at teenage girls -- a demographic not usually that interested in the Super Bowl.
The movie, which features young up-and-comers Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer, is expected to debut with about $17 million, according to those who have seen pre-release audience surveys. The only other movie hitting theaters nationwide this weekend, the Sylvester Stallone action flick "Bullet to the Head," will likely start off with a weak sum of roughly $7 million.
