Analysts are forecasting that the Denzel Washington starrer Remember the Titans will rescue the box office from the doldrums it has experienced during the month of September.
They predict the film will earn around $13 million in its debut, not a titanic figure but one that would certainly be substantially higher than any other movie released during September. (No film earned $10 million or more in its opening weekend this month.)
The wholesome, feel-good film is also expected to blunt some of the daggers being thrown at the movie industry by many politicians. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer told USA Today, "Politicians are forgetting the movies like Remember the Titans that inspire people."
