Weekend Box Office #70
A couple of wide releases this weekend, which will likely finish 1-2, despite the fact that both got pretty bad reviews in today's LA Times.
FOOL'S GOLD (3125 theaters). Apparently it's a pale version of "Romancing the Stone", but the romance-adventure stuff will pull in guys and girls. $20.7 million.
WELCOME HOME ROSCOE JENKINS (2385 theaters). Unenthusiastic critical response so far, but since when has that mattered for a Martin Larence movie? $19.6 million.
VINCE VAUGHN'S WILD WEST COMEDY SHOW (962 theaters). This is supposed to be a solid documentary/stand-up film, but with four unknown comics, it's hard to imagine it doing all that much. $2.9 million.
Opening in only 28 screens is IN BRUGES, which is supposed to be amusing.
