It looks like James Mangold’s (Walk The Line, Logan) racing drama Ford v Ferrari is looking for higher than expected weekend opening according to some early domestic box office tracking.

According to BoxOfficePro, the flick starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon is currently in the range of $25-35 million which would place it in a good riding for potential opening in the top spot for that weekend.

Then again, it’s going head-to-head with Sony’s attempt to reboot Charlie’s Angels, which has the exact same tracking range. That film will be helmed by first-time feature director Elizabeth Banks with a cast that includes In Banks’ bold vision, Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, and Banks herself.

The two films will be in direct competition for the #1 spot that weekend, although, Charlie’s Angels is seemingly targeting a younger demographic than Ford v Ferrari, which could give it a slight edge depending on what the reviews look like for Angels.

Ford v Ferrari has its own edge. The flick was screened earlier this month at the Toronto International Film Festival to mostly positive reviews and is currently sitting at 89% at RottenTomatoes.

Both studio flicks are set to be released on November 15th.

Academy Award-winners Matt Damon and Christian Bale star in FORD v FERRARI, based on the remarkable true story of the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale), who together battled corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company and take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.

In Banks’ bold vision, In Banks’ bold vision, Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska are working for the mysterious Charles Townsend, whose security and investigative agency has expanded internationally. With the world’s smartest, bravest, and most highly trained women all over the globe, there are now teams of Angels guided by multiple Bosleys taking on the toughest jobs everywhere. The screenplay is by Elizabeth Banks from a story by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn. are working for the mysterious Charles Townsend, whose security and investigative agency has expanded internationally.
