The jokey green suit didn’t soar. Green Lantern premiered in the Number One spot at the box office this weekend with $53.1 Million. This was below most people’s projected estimates for the film. I was one of the reason the film didn’t do better. I decided to skip its theatrical run, as I did Thor, and Redbox it. Super 8 was Second with $21.2 Million. Mr. Popper’s Penguins premiered in Third Place with $18.2 Million. X-Men: First Class was Fourth with $11.5 Million for $119.9 Million so far. The Hangover Part II was Fifth with $9.6 Million for $232.6 Million so far. Kung Fu Panda 2, Bridesmaids, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Midnight in Paris, and Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer rounded out the top ten respectively.
