Weekend B.O. July 26-28 (‘Fruitvale’ Cracks The Top Ten)

Weekend B.O. July 26-28 (‘Fruitvale’ Cracks The Top Ten)

That loud sigh of relief you hear is from Fox executives relaxing after finding out that The
Wolverine
didn’t turn out to be another summer film box office bust, making
an estimated $55 million. Though
some predictions had the film opening with $70
million, 
no doubt Fox is happy with what they got.

(Personally I can’t get used to a movie character with those
ridiculous mutton chops sideburns unless he’s a Civil War general)

Last week’s No.1
film, The Conjuring, is holding string
at No.2 this weekend, heading for an eventual final tally of around the $130 million range.

But the more notable news is that Fruitvale Station cracked the top ten B.O.
list this weekend, coming in at No.10.

The film, which opened in just over 1,000 theaters this weekend, grossed
$4,657,000, with a total, so far, of
just over $6 million.

And finally it’s interesting to note that Grown Ups 2 has now grossed more domestically than the much hyped Pacific Rim. Maybe
next time Guillermo del Toro
will have Adam Sandler in his next
film:

1) The Wolverine Fox $55,000,000 
2) The Conjuring WB $22,130,000 Total: $83,867,000 
3) Despicable Me 2 Uni. $16,024,000  Total: $306,413,000 
4) Turbo Fox $13,325,000 Total: $55,768,000 
5) Grown Ups 2 Sony $11,500,000 Total: $101,664,000 
6) Red 2 LG/S $9,400,000 Total: $35,074,000 
7) Pacific Rim WB $7,540,000 Total: $84,026,000
8) The Heat Fox $6,850,000 Total: $141,245,000 
9) R.I.P.D. Uni. $5,857,000 Total: $24,352,000

$6,339,000 at the box office within the first few weeks of a $900,000 budget film opening is incredible. Congrats to Fruitvale!

Congrats to Fruitvale Station! Finally saw it yesterday. Fabulous movie! Can we also acknowledge that The Heat has quietly made $141M. Was very surprised to read that on your list. Enough with skepticism about movies featuring black folks and women!

Top-dollar projects are losing this year.

Congrats to Fruitvale! Amazing numbers on a limited amount of screens. Hopefully, the movie will continue to expand.
