Actor/director Ben Affleck's Warner Bros crime thriller is overperforming at the North American box office tonight. Based on Friday's $8.5M grosses, it will easily finish No. 1 this opening weekend when it was only predicted to come in 2nd. The "R"-rated movie's estimated $25+M looks like it will nearly equal the $28.6M of the same studio's October 6, 2006, Boston crime thriller The Departed directed by Martin Scorsese.

Senh: Ben Affleck is actually pretty talented. With this and "Gone Baby Gone," he proves that not only is he a decent actor, but, more importantly, he's also a great director. What a great bounce back from Gigli and Bennifer.
