The Lorax Tramples John Carter




According to early estimates, The Lorax will top the box office for the second straight weekend, beating the big budget sci-fi action flick John Carter.

The animated Dr. Seuss adaptation, featuring the voices of Zac Efron, Taylor Swift and Danny DeVito, is on pace for $40 million.

Meanwhile, John Carter, starring Taylor Kitsch as a 19th century soldier turned Martian hero, is expected to open to $26 million or so.

Third place should belong to Project X, with the high school party movie projected to earn $11 million.

Act of Valor ($7.5 million) will likely finish #4, with Eddie Murphy’s A Thousand Words ($6 million) and horror film Silent House ($6 million) debuting to weak numbers.

The rest of the Top 10 should include holdovers Safe House, Journey 2, The Vow and This Means War.

Each of those four movies is tracking toward between $4 million and $5 million.
