Box Office Weekend Dedicated to Samuel L. Jackson

No matter how you slice it, Samuel L. Jackson will dominate the box office this weekend.

Jackson stars in both the big budget "Iron Man 2" and the art-house feature "Mother and Child."

"Somehow someway, it's looks like I'm going to be number one this weekend," Jackson said. "One of these films is going to kick some ass."

Of course, Jackson has the 800-pound marketing budget behind him as Nick Fury in "Iron Man 2." He even gets to wear a cool eye patch and boss around Robert Downey Jr.

"Mother and Child," where he plays a lawyer having an affair with Naomi Watts, is the definite underdog.

Jackson is realistic about who will win the battle, but he still has hopes that the smaller-budget movie "will find it's audience."
