'Zero Dark Thirty' Won't Be 'Hurt Locker' at the Box Office

Kathryn Bigelow's Osama bin Laden manhunt thriller "Zero Dark Thirty" hits theaters Wednesday, and when it comes to the box office, this isn't going to be "Hurt Locker."

That was Bigelow's last film, a gritty Iraq war drama that upset "Avatar" for Oscar's Best Picture in 2009 but took in just $17 million domestically. "Zero Dark Thirty" could well top $100 million, say industry analysts -- and if the awards season breaks the right way for the Oscar Best Picture front-runner, it could go higher than that.
