Will the ship hit the fans?

Warner Bros. hopes to avert that sinking feeling this weekend as its pricey “Poseidon” remake bows.

Studio audience tracking on the Wolfgang Petersen pic has been weak, leading to industry expectations that the film will have trouble opening past $20 million and will likely cede the weekend crown to “Mission: Impossible III.” Warners will launch “Poseidon” at 3,555 theaters this weekend, while the other new wide releases include 20th Century Fox and Regency’s Lindsay Lohan vehicle “Just My Luck,” which opens at 2,541 locations. Session’s other new wide release is soccer saga “Goal! The Dream Begins,” which Walt Disney will release at a relatively modest 1,007 locations.
