Disney's biographical sports saga "Invincible" has lead the weekend's US box office. Mark Wahlberg stars as a Philadelphia Eagles fan who never played college ball. He has just lost his wife and his teaching job. He decides one day to show up for an open tryout for his favorite American football team, only to see his wildest dreams come true.
No date has been set as yet for a realease in Malta, although films with American football-related themes rarely do well in the local box office.
From among the top ten in the US Box Office, none are presently showing in local cinemas. "Snakes On A Plane" will be released later on this month. "World Trade Centre" will be released in October.
