The good people at boxofficemojo.com keep us up to date on our box office numbers. I was surprised at how well The Hangover did in its opening weekend, but I was shocked to learn after the final numbers were totaled that it beat out Up for the top spot.
The top five look like this…
5. Star Trek – 8.3 million
4. Night at the Museum: Battle at the Smithsonian – 14.6 million
3. Land of the Lost – 18.8 million
2. Up – 44.1 million
1. The Hangover – 45 million
Oh, and where are you Drag Me to Hell? Ah, yes, number 7, with 7 million. And what about you Terminator Salvation? Oh, there you are at number 6, with 8.2 million. Sorry little guys.
Okay, I am joking. I know Rami’s followers loved “Hell.” It will be watched for years and live a long life on DVD. I have much respect for Rami. Terminator, however, is another story. Memo to Bale: If you aren’t awesome in Public Enemies, I am done with you, at least for a while.
Oh, and how did my weekend box office predictions stack up with reality? Well, you’ll have to check that out HERE!
