Old Action Heroes Never Die

The ExpendablesWith a combination of nostalgia and mind-blowing action,  “The Expendables” easily topped the weekend boxoffice with an estimated $35 million. The actioner outpaced an impressive $23.7 million bow by Sony’s female-targeted Julia Roberts starrer “Eat Pray Love” in second place, while Universal’s geek-seeking “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” debuted with a dismal $10.5 million in fifth place.
