Did It Bomb? Weekend of 5/16/08

Well, folks… Another weekend has sailed on by! How did these films perform at the Box Office? How close did my predictions come? It’s now time for all of you to find out!

Welcome to this week’s installment of DIB?!

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian: The next novel in the Narnia series truly gets the royal treatment, as the Pevensies return to their beloved land to see that much as changed. Damaged terrain, possible full-scale war, and a prince that desperately needs to be in charge!
Will It Bomb? The films currently occupying the second and third spots are absolutely going down! As for our #1, I don’t think this will quite touch it.
Did It Bomb? Well, it climbed up the charts, all right! See you later, Speed! Arrivederci, Vegas! Bye-Bye, Iron Man? All three of these films dipped in the charts! This went all the way to the #1 spot, with a $56.6 million take!
Outcome: Mezza-Mezza. ½ out of 2.

Reprise (Limited Release): In this Norwegian film, two buddies rev up their friendly rivalry when they submit the manuscripts they’ve been working on for quite a while. As you can expect, one does well, the other, not so much. Struggles in life, career, and romance will certainly throw them for a loop!
Will It Bomb? The film festivals are really digging it, so with this limited jaunt, it could be in the cards for it to earn some bank.
Did It Bomb? With just 3 showings in NY and LA, this garnished over $45,400! Excellent! I think this should fare even better when it is expanded to additional markets!
Outcome: Score! 1 ½ out of 2.

***Official Box Office tallies and positions according to Variety (, The Hollywood Reporter ( and The Internet Movie Database (

OK, people. I am slowly, slowly getting there. I haven’t arrived yet, but I am as determined as ever! Where will I be later on this week? Why, here, of course! All the juicy details on the newest crop of flicks are coming at you in a few days! Get ready for WIB?!
