The new medical thriller of the Warner Brothers is ready to take the top spot at the North American box-office. Steven Soderbergh directed film ‘Contagion’ is expected to bring an end to the three-weekend reign that ‘The Help’ has enjoyed atop the box office charts.

However, the DreamWorks and Disney project ‘The Help’ has shown remarkable staying power though, and it is expected to hand around. Apart from this, the female-centric movie looks as if it will command the second slot. The Lionsgate male-oriented Warrior opens in the third place with its own hopes of turning into an equally long-running phenomenon.

The cast of the ‘Contagion’ includes Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cottilard, Jude Law, Laurence Fishburne and Kate Winslet. The story was written by Scott Z. Burns and has been linked to a thinking man’s Irwin Allen-type disaster movie. The movie is set to be release in 3,222 theatres that also includes 257 Imax theatres.

The movie was produced by Warner Brothers for under $60 million. The movie is expected to gross north of $20 million for the first weekend. Besides, ‘The Help’ has been in the top spot for three consecutive years and is set in the South during the Civil Rights era which has taken nearly $128 million at the domestic box office.
