Weekend Box Office: Nov. 18-20th

No real surprise here that Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 was top dog this weekend. Still it wasn’t the biggest opening for the franchise(that prize went to New Moon which opened with $142 million) but it did make $139.5 million bucks. What is odd is most of that was made friday($70 million), I guess fans just attacked theaters that day. Will see how this film does as the holidays approach and we’re just assaulted with movies. Happy Feet 2 wasn’t that happy as it landed in second place with $22 million. You factor in the 3D charge it simply means people were not really into a second round of dancing penguins. Or maybe these people were all seeing Breaking Dawn, which is disturbing.

Immortals dropped like a rock which was suspected, most big action films do. Still for a movie I thought would get thrown under a bus it’s done pretty well. For some reason people are still seeing Jack and Jill as it rounded up another $12 million to it’s total. Sadly J. Edgar isn’t really picking up steam and could see itself falling right out of the top ten. The Descendants only being in 29 theaters broke the top ten, that is a very good sign for that film.

1. Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 $139.5 million

Weekend Box Office: Nov. 11-13th

What? Immortals won the weekend? Okay, this one surprised me, I thought this film was going to be under the radar, guess I was wrong. People wanted some R-rated God like action this weekend. I’m sure the 3D charged helped but Immortals sliced and stabbed its way to the top with $32 million. Glad to see a big time action film like this doing well. The brain melting comedy(can you call it that?) Jack and Jill landed in second with $26 million, while Puss in Boots was right behind it. Boots has broken the $100 million dollar mark and has proved it has some legs, even if they are small cat legs.

Tower Heist dropped to fourth but still made a strong $13 million, maybe the film has been getting some good word of mouth. Sadly J. Edgar could only muster up $11 million, but it was on a lot less screens than the other top films. It’s possible as award season churns the film will grow some legs. Paranormal Activity 3 broke the $100 million dollar mark, which basically makes it clear a fourth film is coming. The next couple of weeks should be interested to see which films have the legs and which drop out as more films fill the screens as the holidays approach.

Here is the list…

1. Immortals $32 million

2. Jack and Jill $26 million

3. Puss in Boots $25.5 million

4. Tower Heist $13.2 million

5. J. Edgar $11.6 million

6. A very Harold and Kumar Christmas $5.9 million

7. In Time $4.1 million

8. Paranormal Activity 3 $3.6 million

9. Footloose $2.7 million

10. Real Steel $2.1 million
