Box office preview: Can 'Noah' build an opening of biblical proportions?

After months of hand wringing and controversy, Darren Aronofsky’s CGI-happy Noah finally hits theaters this weekend.

Boasting an all-star cast, a patina of prestige and a wide release, there’s no doubt that the epic will open in first place. But coming on the heels of last weekend’s surprise success story God’s Not Dead, the Christian film that opened in fourth place at $9.2 million from just 780 screens, the question of the weekend is whether faith-based audiences will turn out to see just what Aronofsky has done with the story.

This weekend also provides a lot of interesting fodder to analyze, including Divergent‘s ability to hold its own after a robust, fan-driven opening weekend, whether or not The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s limited-release triumphs will translate into a mainstream hit, and how successful Pantelion’s grassroots Cesar Chavez marketing will be when it comes to getting audiences in the theaters.

'Sabotage': Joe Manganiello talks new trailer (and not being recognized in a strip club scene) -- EXCLUSIVE

In Sabotage, the gritty new movie from End of Watch writer/director David Ayer hitting theaters March 28, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Prisoners‘ Terrence Howard, True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello, and The Killing‘s Mireille Enos star as members of a badass DEA task force who find themselves on a Mexican cartel’s hit list after $10 million goes missing in a bust. Check out our exclusive debut of the new trailer below.

Manganiello sees a certain horror movie structure to the film in that the team members are being hunted down one by one. And if you also watch the red band trailer, you’ll see there’s just as much blood. “David Ayer likes it dark, he likes it nasty,” Manganiello says. “[But] the violence in the movie is taken from what’s actually going in that world. The things that are done to people are gruesome and scary.”

Ayer encourages actors to bring something to the plate on set, and after spending about four months alongside real-life DEA agents as research, Manganiello literally had a notebook full of material. Hence him improvising a quip — “Clean-up, aisle three” — heard in the trailer. “That line is in response to a SWAT officer showing up on the scene and finding that we’ve now made a mess in his jurisdiction,” he says. “So I have this whole notebook full of sayings that these cops that I worked alongside and observed would say to each other, and a lot of them were dealing with the fact that when local cops and federal agents show up and there’s a shootout, the federal agents are allowed to leave the mess. They can get into a huge gunfight and just jump in their cars and take off, and then the locals are left to clean up.” READ FULL STORY
