Despite three new, pretty well reviewed films at the box office, it was a pretty quiet weekend for moviegoers.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â LIMITLESS, the Bradley Cooper/Robert De Niro vehicle about having the world at your fingertips, took the number one spot with only $19 Million (yeah, that’s pretty small in comparison to many others).Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The other two new releases, THE LINCOLN LAWYER and PAUL opened all the way down in fourth and fifth place with $13.4 Million and $13.2 Million respectively.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â All three films were rated Fresh on RottenTomatoes, with LIMITLESS at 65%, LINCOLN LAWYER at 81% and PAUL at 71%.
As for the two spots between the new openers, it is yet another kids movie that seems to be holding strong, with RANGO taking second again, adding another $15.3 Million in its third week.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â (At this rate, it should pass $100 Million by next weekend.)Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Last week’s number one movie, BATTLE: LOS ANGELES, dropped down to third with $14.6 Million, bringing it’s total just past $60 Million.
Other news for the Top Ten: MARS NEEDS MOMS is officially (if it wasn’t already) a complete disaster, only taking in a total of $15 Million so far…one tenth of it’s price tag!!Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â And in it’s 17th week of release, THE KING’S SPEECH was finally moved out of the top ten with a total of $133 Million.
Next week, we have the release of two new movies.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The first is the sequel to last year’s DIARY OF A WIMPY KID, aptly titled DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: RODRICK RULES. (We’ll see if that’ll be another lingering kids flick.)Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The second is Zack Snyder’s (the new director of SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL, mind you) SUCKER PUNCH, which seems to be the only thing people could talk about with new movies lately.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The question is…how much will SUCKER PUNCH make when it takes the number one spot…?
