Maybe movie stars aren't so expendable. At a time when pricey talent is thought to yield diminishing returns for film studios, Lionsgate's star-studded "The Expendables" easily topped the weekend boxoffice with an estimated $35 million in domestic coin. The testosterone-spiked actioner outpaced an impressive $23.7 million bow by Sony's female-targeted Julia Roberts starrer "Eat Pray Love" in second place, while Universal's geek-seeking "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" debuted with a dismal $10.5 million in fifth place.

Senh: Hurray for the guys. "The Expendables" won the box office battle this weekend. It's a fun action movie for the guys. Looks like Stallone will be cranking out more action movies. Maybe for "Expendables 2," they'll finally get Steven Seagal and Jean Claude van Damme. "Eat Pray Love" did pretty well too. Looks like Julia Roberts is back. "Scott Pilgrim vs. World" did decent considering it's more of a niche film.
