Weekend Box Office #44
A somewhat-underwhelming weekend at the box office, aside maybe for Stardust. It might be time to catch up on some older releases that you have missed.
RUSH HOUR 3 (3778 theaters). The first two movies were solid enough that this will likely have a good opening weekend; people like to laugh. But the reviews have been pretty poor, and look for it to drop big on weekend two. Prediction: $51.1 million in its first 3 days.
STARDUST (2540 theaters). I don't know why, but the commercials seem a little cheesy to me, and Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer seem like they are overacting. Still, it's getting generally-good reviews, so it might work. $17.8 million.
DADDY DAY CARE (2332 theaters). This is currently at an abysmal 2% on Rotten Tomatoes -- that's 1 good review out of 47. It opened on Monday in 9th place, which is awful considering it was the only movie opening that day. Remember when Cuba Gooding Jr. had a respectable career? $5.3 million.
SKINWALKERS (737 theaters). They didn't screen it for critics, and haven't been advertising it much. $1.7 million.
