‘Moneyball’ connects at Friday B.O.

Sony pic leads the field, with 'Dolphin' in the swim

Sony’s “Moneyball” is looking to take the weekend box office’s top spot, with observers pegging the Brad Pitt-toplined pic’s grosses in the high teens to low-$20 million range.

Warner Brothers’ “Dolphin Tale” will likely follow in the high teens while “Lion King” is expected to hold over well from last week and earn in the mid teens to just south of $20 million.

Lionsgate’s “Abduction” is shaping up to earn in the low to mid teens based on afternoon figures, but with young auds on the East Coast just starting to head to the multiplexes, that number may pop come nightfall.

Open Road’s “Killer Elite” is likely to follow, with earnings estimates between $11 million and $12 million.
