Movie News

“Alice in Wonderland” ruled the box office for the third week in the row. The Tim Burton film grossed $34.2M and brought its total to an outstanding $265.4M, a final gross of $350M is in the cards. The number one spot represents for Disney their first three week run on the top since “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”. Fox released the middle school book adaptation of “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” to a very impressive $22.1M. Since the film has a slim budget of $15M, you can expect the other books to me made into films very quickly. It is even more impressive that “Wimpy” played to the same audience as “Wonderland” and was still able to capture such a great opening weekend.

“The Bounty Hunter” was released this weekend to a solid $20.7M. With a low budget of $40M, the film should see success through the coming weeks. The film is Aniston’s sixth best opening and Butler’s fourth best opening. “Repo Men” completely failed to reach an audience this weekend, grossing a mere $6.13M. The futuristic sci-fi picture made for only $32M, will have a hard time reaching success, until it heads to DVD. “Green Zone” tanked in second week dropping a massive 57.3%, Damon must rethink retiring from Bourne series because with this film and his last film “The Informant”, his career seems lost without finding his memory playing Bourne. The $100M film could end up with $40M final gross.

“She Out of my League” dropped a reasonable 40.6% in week two, grossing $5.8M. Although not a huge hit, the $20M film will finish at about $30M. It will really find its audience on DVD. “Shutter Island” is still kicking in week five, grossing $4.7M bringing its total to $115.8M. “Avatar” lost some steam since it was announced to be on DVD in about a month, grossing $4M in week fourteen. Its total, before its proposed summer re-release, should linger around $750M. “Our Family Wedding” dropped to ninth place, grossing $3.7M in week two, its total stands at $13.6M. “Remember Me” crumbled to tenth place dropping almost 60%, grossing $3.3M. The film will most likely gross around $20M total, not too great for the 16M budget film.

Next week, the hysterical comedy “Hot Tub Time Machine” and the 3D Dreamworks animated “How to Train Your Dragon” are released.

Look for Box Office Report every Monday night.
