Scott Pilgrim may have beaten "The World" to get the girl of his dreams, but his box office debut was a nightmare thanks to the celluloid mercenaries from "The Expendables."
Sylvester Stallone's ensemble action movie, featuring five-time UFC Champion Randy Couture, was the number one movie at the box office this weekend, fending off Michael Cera and the "Pilgrim" graphic novel adaptation as well as a putrid chick-flick from Julia Roberts.
"The Expendables" grossed an estimated $35 million in its weekend debut.
As far as cinema bragging rights, it looks like Couture was a "Natural," outdrawing fellow UFC fighter Quinton Jackson as "B.A. Baracus" in June's "A-Team" movie.
"Rampage" had a plan that came together -- though probably not as well as he and the rest of the A-Team cast would have liked, as the soldiers gave up a fortune to Jackie Chan and his pint-sized co-star Jaden Smith in "The Karate Kid" remake.
"A-Team" opened in second place to a disappointing $26 million back on June 11.
