Well, this weekend is looking kinda bleak. Looks like Hunger Games may have a shot at 400 million over the next couple of weeks afterall. :p

Personally, I think Bruno kind of hurt the Sacha Baron Cohen brand because it alienated a good portion of his fans.

I was expecting the "What to Expect While You're Expecting" to be the chick flick comedy of the summer (since we seem to have one almost every year but that fell flat. I guess it's too early for a title like that anyway. Normally it comes around mid june to early july...

Is it wrong for me to be glad Battleship is doing as poorly as I originally hoped it would? I was expecting it to do well because i keep hearing people talk about wanting to see it...and well, I guess I just know people with bad taste in movies. :D

The chick flick comedy of the summer is Think Like a Man.

Yes...because an April release warrants the title of chick flick comedy of the summer.

Actually, I would like to take back that statement...you may very well be correct. I can see why Yahoo opted to say "Snow White and the Huntsman" was going to be the chick flick for the Summer....Maybe something will come out that ends up expanding outward.  It's so weird to see a year without a summer blockbuster for females...



The Avengers - $55m (a little below my prediction)
Battleship- Sunk at $25m
The Dictator - $17m
The Hunger Games - $3 m down 33% - still doing well.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - $3.25 m - up 21% with no added theaters.

I was checking the biggest weekends (1st - 12th) and Avengers, Avatar have most of them early on but then out of nowhere Titanic got a big boost and takes the top spot for a lot of weekends. What was going on back then?

It is too bad because I liked battleship just a little less than avengers. Maybe because I am American. Hopefully word of mouth can keep the drops from being too bad.

It only opened in 2,674 theatres. It kept increasing in theater count until  it's 16th weekend. That + good WOM caused some never-before-seen legs.

A monster that Battleship will never be
