Deadwood trailer – GET IN MY EYES AND EARS! buff.ly/2L0zQxX
Dancing and aliens couldn’t knock down the boxing robots.
Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman, kept its top spot at the box office, although just barely. Falling a respectable 40.3% to earn $16.3 million bringing its domestic box office total to $51.7 million.
Coming in second was the remake of Footloose with $16.1 million. There is a chance that once the final tallies come out later today that #1 and #2 could switch places, but it was definitely a close call.
The Thing shape shifted its way into a disappointing third place with a meager $8.7 million. Things aren’t looking too good for this remake … what a shock.
Wrapping up the top five was Dolphin Tale which slipped a further 30.2% to bring in $6.3 million.
This week’s other semi-high profile opening for The Big Year starring Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson debuted in eighth place with an abysmal $3.3 million. With a so-so advertising campaign that completely ignored the bird watching premise of the story, this isn’t a huge surprise, but still ranks as one of the worst openings for all three actors.
Next weekend has Johnny English Reborn, The Mighty Macs, Paranormal Activity 3 and The Three Musketeers. The only one with any real hope of doing well, in my opinion is the third entry in the Paranormal Activity series, and even that I have low hopes for.
I Don’t Know How She Does It? $32,000 this weekend bringing its domestic total to $9.569 million off a $24 million budget. This just gets uglier with each passing weekend.
