Weekend box office 09/17/2010-09/19/2010

  The Town

 

 

  $ 23,800,000

 

 

  Warner Bros.

 

 

 I really want to see this film. Somehow this one reminds me of “Point Break“. Maybe it’s just the costumes of bank robbers? Anyway this is a hit for Ben Afflect, who made a smart move of directing his own movie and casting himself in the lead. Blake Lively from “Gossip Girl” is also interesting, as well as great Jon Hamm from “Mad Men“.

 Easy A

 

 

  18,200,000

Emma Stone starrer. New teen movie queen is born.

  Devil

 

 

  12,584,000

Read my review below. Lowest box office for a movie associated with Mr M. Night S.

  Resident Evil: Afterlife

 

 

  10,100,000

 

 

  43,991,000

 

 

  Sony

So far running below other  3 movies in the series  in attendance, but huge overseas.

 

 

 5

 

 

  Alpha and Omega

 

 

  9,200,000

 

 

  Lionsgate

Lionsgate is not know for great cartoon movies. A flop. Was mostly attended by moms and their daughters. Will be on DVD soon.

  Takers

 

 

  3,000,000

 

 

  52,346,000

Doing OK. I have no interest in seeing the movie with this cast. Yawn…

  The American

 

 

  2,756,000

 

 

 32,856,000

 

 

  Focus

Great movie. Another semi-flop for George Clooney. Too bad. This one will probably do OK overseas. Someone called this film “a foreign movie with George Clooney”. Wish this film was a bigger box office success here.

  Inception

 

 

  2,015,000

 

 

  Warner Bros.

Huge hit. No more comments.

  The Other Guys

 

 

  2,000,000

 

 

  115,431,000

 

 

  Sony

Mark Wahlberg in a comedy. Smart choice after many disappointments at the box office, including “Max Payne“, which incidentally was a great sci-fi movie.

  Eat Pray Love

 

 

  1,700,000

 

 

  77,686,000

 

 

  Sony

Saw this one with my wife. Preachy semi-fun travelogue. Julia Robert did not look too good, but a semi-hit for her resume.

  Machete

 

 

  1,700,000

 

 

  24,336,000

 

 

  Fox

You will forget this film was ever made in about 2 weeks. Will do OK on DVD.
