expendables2 "The Expendables" #1 at weekend box office

Sylvester Stallone has proven that he’s not quite expendable yet at the box office.

Stallone and his pumped-up pals lifted the 1980s-style action romp “The Expendables” to a No. 1 debut with $35 million. The movie features such action stars as Jet Li and Jason Statham – along with cameos from Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger – in a tale of mercenaries aiming to overthrow a dictator.

While the macho “Expendables” lured male audiences, Julia Roberts delivered a crowd-pleaser for women with “Eat Pray Love,” which opened at No. 2 with $23.7 million. Adapted from Elizabeth Gilbert’s best-selling memoir, the movie stars Roberts as a woman traveling the world in search of enlightenment after her divorce.
