We all expected this so it’s not a surprise, Thor landed in the top spot with a solid $66 million bucks. That’s pretty good for a movie where most people probably have no knowledge of the comic. Still I feel the studio was looking for bigger numbers, the film has chances to have some legs though. Last weeks king Fast Five drove to second with over thirty million dollars. A huge drop off from last weeks take, but that was really expected.
The rest of the list is pretty basic, new films Jumping the Broom and Something Borrowed did alright I guess. Both landing in third and forth respectively. Rio and Water for Elephants are also sticking around adding to their take. Family friendly films like Prom and Hoodwinked two sits at the bottom. I’m confused by the film Soul Surfer, it looked horrible, I avoided it like the plague itself, yet it sticks around in the top ten. Not making big bucks but for sure having some legs.
