Weekend Box Office #43
So this weekend it's all about THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM, which is getting great reviews. Otherwise, the new releases are all fairly forgettable.
THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM (3660 theaters). Supposedly it's a quick-paced thrill ride, even if it turns out to not be about all that much. Sounds good to me; look for it to do about $64 million this weekend.
UNDERDOG (3013 theaters). This really looks dreadful from the commercials, and they didn't screen it for critics. Little kids will probably drag a parent to see it, but it's hard to imagine anyone over the age of 10 getting too excited at the prospect. It'll make about $9.3 million.
HOT ROD (2607 theaters). Apparently it's minor-league dumb fun. If the theater is air conditioned, it might be worth it. $9.0 million.
BRATZ (1509 theaters). Currently has 8% good reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. I suppose there a tween girl audience out there for this, but I don't think it's a big one. $4.0 million.
EL CANTANTE (542 theaters). You'd think Jennifer Lopez would have learned her lesson about doing movies with her significant other, but maybe she gets lonely on the set. $1.8 million.
What are you all going to see this weekend? I'm going to try and catch Simpsons and Bourne.
