Of the forthcoming 8.24 openers, Philip G. Atwell‘s War (Lionsgate), the Jet Li-Jason Statham martial-arts thriller, and Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman‘s The Nanny Diaries (Weinstein Co.) are tracking the best. War has better awareness and definite interest, and will probably be the #1 newbie. And the 9.7 duke-out between 3:10 to Yuma and Shoot ‘Em Up is still neck and neck, with the latter enjoying a very slight edge.
