Box Office / Weekend of July 18 – 20

The Bat takes the weekend Box Office by a land slide and sets a few records along the way. The Dark Knight took the top spot this weekend (no sh*t) with $155.3 Million dollars. It also set the one day record on Friday, July 18, 2008 with $67.85 Million, betting Spiderman 3, the previous record holder ($40.4 Million on June 30, 2004) and set the best midnight record with $18 Million. In one weekend, The Dark Knight has almost made back its production budget of $180 Million. Mamma Mia! was Number Two this weekend with $27.6 Million. Third was Hancock with $14 Million for a total of $191.5 Million. Journey to the Center of the Earth was Number Four, bringing in $11.9 Million. Fifth was Hellboy II: The Golden Army with $10 Million. Wall-E, Space Chimps, Wanted, Get Smart and Kung-Fu Panda rounded out the top ten respectively.

  • Spidey 3 wasn’t that bad. They just shouldn’t have put Venom in the film or had Mary Jane in peril AGAIN.

  • The dancing part I liked plus Howard is hot. Linking Sandman with Ben was weak but they did it in an inventive way. The symbiote, however, was completely handled wrong and Howard was completely underused. For all of my thoughts on Spiderman 3, here is my Spiderman 3 Review.
