Love don’t mean a thing to mutants

Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn won’t be able to break the mutants’ hold on the box office this

weekend. With “X-Men: the Last Stand” a lock on first place even if it falls as much as 60%, Universal

is just hoping “The Break-Up” won’t be too far behind. Thanks in part to public attention on the stars’

personal relationship, pic is on track to have a strong bow for a romantic comedy. The wildcard is

males. Pic is tracking very well with women, but interest is a little higher than normal among men, most

likely due to presence of Vaughn. Fox, meanwhile, is bracing for “X-Men” to take a sizable drop from its

$103 million three-day opening. In limited release, Paramount Classics is expanding Al Gore global-

warming docu “An Inconvenient Truth” to 77 theaters in the top 10 markets after a boffo bow at four

plays in L.A. and Gotham last frame.
