Baseball Score Double-Features

At a press screening last night at a Salt Lake City multiplex, I passed by a pair of theaters in succession with the following titles: "Transformers 2", "Year One." Leaving aside for a moment the fact that the new Transformers movie doesn't technically have a number in the title, the coincidence just made me think of movie double-features that would read like baseball scores: Not just a number for a title (like 10, Seven), so that each title sounds like a team and its score. And I tried to do it without resorting to sequels.

The first pairings:

Fantastic Four, Less Than Zero

Ocean's Eleven, The Magnificent Seven (wind blowing out at Wrigley that day)

Return of the Secaucus Seven, And Baby Makes Three

Chapter Two, The Brave One (pitcher's duel)

Entertain us with some of your own, and maybe we'll throw some free stuff at the best suggestions.
