'Pain & Gain' Poised to Bench-Press Box Office

"Pain & Gain," director Michael Bay's action movie about bad-boy bodybuilders, is the favorite to hoist the domestic box office crown when it debuts this weekend.

Stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will flex about $20 million worth of multiplex muscle over the three days, analysts say. That should be enough to beat out last weekend's No. 1 film, the Tom Cruise sci-fi epic "Oblivion," which looks on pace to finish second in the high-teen millions.
