‘Curse’ aims for box office blessing

Five new wide releases crowd into multiplexes this weekend. Among them are DreamWorks’ “Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit,” which will bow ultrawide at 3,645 theaters, and 20th Century Fox’s Cameron Diaz movie “In Her Shoes,” which debuts at 2,808. Also opening, Universal unspools Morgan Creek’s Al Pacino-Matthew McConaughey gambling drama “Two for the Money” at 2,388, Lions Gate releases the restaurant comedy “Waiting…” in 1,652, and Sony launches Screen Gems’ “The Gospel” at 969. Industry estimates expect a tight race between “Wallace & Gromit” and “In Her Shoes,” with both movies finishing in the low- to mid-teens. Execs give “Were-Rabbit” a slight edge to exceed that range because of its ultrasaturated release pattern and the fact that kidpics are notoriously difficult to track.
