Are Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio not big enough to open ‘Body of Lies’?

My colleague John Horn is finishing a story for our Thursday paper that makes a bold prediction — it's possible that "Body of Lies" may lose the opening weekend box-office race to a week-old movie about a talking dog. Yikes! When it comes to star power, it's hard to imagine a movie having more fuel injection than "Body of Lies," which has two of Hollywood's top A-listers, Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio, along with top director Ridley Scott. So why is the heavily promoted Warners political thriller tracking so poorly?
