LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The image of the superhero expensive, "Green Lantern" is to win the race at the weekend box office, while Jim Carrey, "Mr. Popper's Penguins" will receive a cool reception.

The official name of Warner Bros. 'Green Lantern' should be between 50 million and $ 60 million to win in the first three days of release in North America. Box office observers believe that will come on top of that range, if not more, and start a new franchise, despite the negative reviews.

20th Century Fox, however, anticipating a disappointing start to the range of $ 10000000-15000000 dollars, "Mr. Popper's Penguins".

The study said that its financial risk is limited since "March of the Penguins" to produce a relatively modest cost of $ 55 million. In many parts of the movie, the real penguins were used, rather than rely on special effects.

Warner has more to lose financially, to produce "Green Lantern" cost of $ 200 million. The initial budget was $ 150 million, but the special effects and 3D conversion increases prices. The film, starring Ryan Reynolds as the DC Comics character, is the best track of men over 25 years.

"Green Lantern" is doing well overseas, where it is in 15 markets this weekend was in operation, and a strong national races. The good news is that 3D is growing internationally.

Director: Martin Campbell, "Green Lantern" and Blake Lively as the love interest and also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins and Angela Bassett.

"Penguins," directed by Mark Waters, is a divorced father who buys the birds than doubled his home in Manhattan - and life. The film also stars Carla Gugino, Madeline Carroll, Angela Lansbury and Philip Baker Hall. "Penguins", based on a children's book in 1938, could be a test call for Carrey.

A studio executive said he expects that "March of the Penguins" in order to do well internationally, where he was a slow unfolding of this week, and began to DVD.

"Penguins" was originally set to open in August, but Fox moved the release date of the weekend through Father's Day, by including in its holiday marketing campaign ("Take pops" to see penguins Popper).

Among the specialties Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" is expanded to a total of 1,038 rooms this weekend (from 944 last weekend), like many of his long career of Allen. The crowd favorite has earned more than $ 16 million to date.
