Who knew? I did, that’s Who. Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears a Who is the Number One film in the nation for the second week in a row. It dropped 44.2% of its audience from last weekend. As I predicted, the Tyler Perry family drama Meet the Browns premiered very high, Number Two over the weekend in fact, with a little over $20 Million. The Asian remake Shutter premiered with $10.7 Million in the Number Three spot. Fourth place went to the third major premiere of weekend, Drillbit Taylor, which brought in $10.2 Million. 10,000 BC, Never Back Down, College Road Trip, The Bank Job, Vantage Point and Under the Same Moon, the last major premiere of the weekend, rounded out the top ten respectively with $2.6 Million. Doomsday dropped 55.8% of its audience from last week for the eleventh spot with $2.18 Million. Boy, I didn’t see that coming. The Other Boleyn Girl rounded out the top twelve with $2 Million. And then there was Juno. In its sixteen week of release, the film added another $765 Thousand to its coffers for a total of $141 Million.

    No surprise there, Horton is making some nice bank. Tyler Perry continues his winning streak, im sure his movie cost less than that to make. Drillbit not doing better surprised me, thought they’d get that Superbad money. Shutter fooled people into thinking theyre seeing Grudge 3 or Ring 3. Sad thing is that with summer right around the bend tons of movies are getting thrown out there every weekend so you either make money your opening weekend or you’re assed out.

  • Superhero Summer is coming up. All of these ordinary films would get lost in the shuffle if they dared to come out then. Look what happened to Cinderella Man and A Mighty Heart. They were lost in the shuffle.

    Thing is, with the supposed “quality” films coming out after September and the summer being full of the blockbusters every other film that doesnt seem to have a niche will be dumped out now and in August.

  • And don’t forget the dumping ground that is January.
