Shrek 4 Tops Box Office AgainAuthor: Jon Martin | Sunday, June 6th, 2010 |
Earning $25.3 million, Shrek: Forever After was the top-grossing film for the second weekend in a row. There were high hopes for Get Him to The Greek, it managed to earn a decent but lower-than-expected $17 million. In third, Ashton Kutcher’s critical flop, The Killers with $16 million in box office receipts.
Prince of Persia is not doing as well planned, investors and some analysts had predicted the franchise would be as lucrative as Pirates of the Caribbean. Not so, at least not in America, it will probably have legs internationally though, these sort of films tend to. Sex and the City 2 may be in 5th but it will continue to make cash as it’s the only film of it’s kind out right now. With the Killers being a flop critically and soon commercially, Sex and the City is the only movie out there strictly for women (and teh gays). I think as long as SATC2 is the only film targeting that demographic, it’ll quietly make money all summer.
Marmaduke? I’m not even going to discuss that right now. -_- Fuck Marmaduke and Fuck Owen Wilson. He can get good roles if he tries but the guy clearly doesn’t give a fuck or has a horrible agent.
It bums me out Slice didn’t do that well, but it wasn’t marketed well enough in my opinion. Maybe it will pick up from good word of mouth? According to rotten tomatoes, Splice is better than most of the films in the top 10.
Lastly, Babies continues to terrify movie-goers with it’s brutal portayal of babies just bein’ babies. For a film with no dialogue and very little marketing, 6 million seems like a pretty good box office take. Then again, I can’t find the budget anywhere.. but regardless, this film will do extremely well in the international box office, will make tons of money through home entertainment channels (Pay-Per-View, Netflix, Xboxlive/PSN).
