  Transformers 2 Dominates Box Office
Posted by: Mike on Jun 29th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

It’s no secret that everyone anticipated Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen to be enormous.  I even went and saw it, though I certainly didn’t like it.

The movie raked in just over $200 million it its first five days in theaters.  While that may seem like a lot of money, it isn’t the most money ever taken in during the first five days in theaters.  That record is still held by The Dark Knight.  It was close, but Batman won by just a few million dollars.

With that said, $200million is still good for the number two spot on the list of best five day openings in history, and it demolished The Proposal, which made just $18 million.

Did you see Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen?  What did you think?  Sound off in the comments.




  HSM 3; The Biggest Movie In The Country?
Posted by: Mike on Oct 27th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

I know, I know, there’s tons of teenagers in this country.  But really, High School Musical 3 is the biggest movie in the country over its past opening weekend?  $40 million dollars worth of teenagers and adults paid to see this movie.

I really am astounded.

I’m surprised Saw V managed to pull in just over $30 million, even with all the movie goers going to HSM.  I’m actually surprised that many people paid to see it.  It’s the first Saw in 5 years that Christine hasn’t begged me to go see opening night.  That’s probably because the franchise is beyond ridiculous now.

Forty million.  That’s 4 million people paying $10 each to see it. I… just… wow.  Simply wow.




  Iron Man Not Stopped By GTA IV

As I predicted earlier this week, Iron Man‘s opening weekend wasn’t affected by the recent release of Grand Theft Auto IV, despite what some “experts” said.

The superhero film starring Robert Downey, Jr. grossed $104 million and was the second-biggest opening ever by a non-sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Clearly, boys like superhero movies more than, or just as much as, they like violent video games. God bless America.
