Weekend Box Office #68
There has been some freaky weather out in the LA area this week. I was walking down the street in Studio City yesterday when it started hailing.
Last night there were tornado warnings for the Malibu area.
There's also going to be some action at movie theaters this weekend:
RAMBO (2751 theaters). Though recent (downbeat) war movies haven't been doing that well, there's probably an audience to see someone kicking ass in a foreign land. Even if they are using a walker. It should do about $20.2 million, and battle CLOVERFIELD for the top spot.
MEET THE SPARTANS (2605 theaters). This looks really, really stupid, but sometimes that's what people are looking for. $10.7 million.
UNTRACEABLE (2368 theaters). I've only seen the trailer, but I think I already know who the bad guy is. Still, films like this often do well. $9.8 million.
HOW SHE MOVE (1531 theaters). This was an Sundance last year, and is supposed to be solid of its type. $8.9 million.
THERE WILL BE BLOOD more than doubles its screen count to 885, while NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN and ATONEMENT continue to expand, and MICHAEL CLAYTON reopens on over 1000 screens.
