Well, Little Fockers came in at number one but with only $34M at the ticket office, it has a long way to go before it is in the black. Coming in at number two is the remake of the classic western, True Grit. With $36M since the opening on Wednesday, it looks like it should have no trouble putting up solid numbers for a couple of weeks.
The Disney sequel, Tron Legacy drew a few more people this weekend keeping it near the top at number three. It will be cracking the $100M mark sometime this week. Another very popular family movie, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is holding on to its place in the list with another $10M weekend.
Yogi Bear looks to be on its way out as another dismal weekend keeps it from gaining any headway on the list. The critically acclaimed boxing movie, The Fighter is taking in an impressive average of nearly $3,400 per theatre. While that makes it the number five movie for per theatre average, it isn’t in enough theatres to break the top five on this list.
The big surprise for me is the Jack Black comedy adventure, Gulliver’s Travels. With all of the commercials and media exposure, I would have thought this movie would draw a few more movie goers but releasing on a family holiday proved to be a bit of a miscalculation.
The last movie on the list, The Tourist, is also last on the per theatre average list and after only three weeks is has just broken the $40M mark. that does not bode well for this on screen duo.
Next week there are no movies being released into wide distribution so there won’t be too much to talk about on Tuesday but there will be a look back at 2010 and a look ahead at 2011.
