Looks like Summer audiences are craving action! The Sylvester Stallone-directed The Expendables brought its heavy artillery to the box office and came away with first place in its opening weekend with $35 million. It faced off against fellow new release Eat Pray Love, which used the power of Julia Roberts's smile to get to second place with a $23.7 million intake.
Last week's champ The Other Guys came in at third place with $17 million, trailed by Inception at $11.4 million. The other newbie at theaters, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, barely made the top 5, earning just $10.5 million.
