Disney's Race to Witch Mountain flew out of the gate going 100 miles per hour. The kid-friendly thriller raced into the number one spot this weekend, taken in an estimated $25 million. This was $3 million more than the opening grosses for Dwayne Johnson's 2007 comedy The Game Plan, which proved to be a substantial hit for both Disney and The Rock. That film went on to collect more than $90 million at the box office. Race to Witch Mountain will most likely do the same.
Dropping to number two in its second week of release is the comic book adaptation Watchmen. The action drama pulled in another $18 million, which places its cumulative grosses at $86 million. Opening in third place was Wes Craven's remake of The Last House on the Left. A crowd pleaser, this horrifying new take on an old classic pulled in $14.6 million. This week's only other major release Miss March kerplunked itself all the way down in the number ten spot. It opened this weekend to a rather lackluster $2.3 million take.Read More
Watchmen came on strong Thursday at midnight, with its initial theatrical debut pulling in over $4 million, but those figures didn't hold throughout the weekend. Considered a tough sell by some, Zack Snyder's highly anticipated graphic novel adaptation secured $55.6 million over the weekend, making it the number one film. But it fell below industry expectations. It proved to be a popular film with fans of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' original book, but those not in the know were slightly baffled by this superhero outing. You can look for it to drop quite a bit next week, as the film certainly didn't live up to its hype in the eyes of the general film going public.
Dropping to number two in its third week of release is Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail. The comedic drama pulled in another $8.8 million, which makes its cumulative take $76 million. This is a career best for Perry, and he has already signed on to do two more films for Lionsgate. Though, it is still up in the air as to when Madea herself will return to the big screen. Also experiencing a career high this year is Liam Neeson, whose Taken remains in the number three position. A true crowd pleaser, the Luc Beeson produced action thriller took in another $7.4 million, placing its stateside cumulative profits at $118 million. Worldwide, the film has already grossed $190 million. Taken is looking to be one of the biggest surprise hits of the year.Read More
The Jonas Brothers were no match for Madea this weekend. Tyler Perry's latest dramedy Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail managed to stay in the top spot for a second weekend in a row. It pulled in another $16.5 million for a cumulative take of $64 million. That makes it the highest grossing film of Perry's career so far. Disney's Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience came in second place with $12.7 million. That's only half of what Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds made when it was released around this same time last year. Maybe interest in Disney's teen trio is waning? We'll have to wait and see how Hannah Montana: The Movie fares when it is released later this year.
This week's only other major release didn't fare quite as well as Madea and the Jonas Brothers. Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li dropped in at number at 8, managing to muster up a meager $4.6 million. 20th Century Fox's attempt to restart a big screen version of Capcom's popular video game faltered, and I doubt we will be seeing these characters on the big screen again any time soon. Wayne Kramer's latest thriller Crossing Over, which stars Harrison Ford, opened on nine screens for a cumulative take of $75,600. Though, the film with the highest per screen average was Warner Brothers' IMAX documentary Under the Sea 3D, which took in $563,000 on 51 screens. In theaters for three weeks now, the film has made $2.4 million.Read More
Tyler Perry is back to his old tricks. In a move that has surprised no one, his latest theatrical dramedy Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail pulled in $41.1 million over the weekend, becoming the number one film at the box office. While the movie currently ranks as the twentieth highest grossing fat suit movie of all time, it is Perry's biggest opening weekend thus far, proving once and for all that the man owns February. With an opening weekend this high, you can look for even more films from Perry's signature brand sometime in the very near future.
This week's only other new release, Sony Screen Gem's Fired Up, didn't fair quite so well. The poorly marketed teen comedy about a couple of jocks who join their high school cheerleading team, took an immediate nosedive at the box office and wound up in ninth place with just $6 million. Expect it to be out of sight and mind by next week.Read More
