Weekend Box Office #77
Some interesting movies opening this weekend:
SUPERHERO MOVIE (2960 theaters). Craig Mazin over at Artful Writer wrote and directed this, which means it's likely to be more consistent and funnier than "Epic Movie", "Date Movie" and that ilk. Should do pretty well. $19.3 million.
21 (2648 theaters). I read the book, which was good; the movie is supposed to be okay. $14.6 million.
STOP-LOSS (1291 theaters). It's getting good reviews (it's directed by Kimberly Pierce, who did BOYS DON'T CRY), and they are advertising the hell out of it. Still, the subject matter is tough. $6.5 million.
RUN FAT BOY RUN (1133 theaters). It's getting okay reviews, despite being a British comedy directed by David Schwimmer (?!?). But I'm not sure there are enough big Simon Pegg fans out there. $3.9 million.
