Weekend Box Office #127
In the midst of a long tiring move. Moved my mother-in-law into the house, and now we're doing the big furniture move tomorrow.
Meanwhile I have too much stuff. Too many DVDs, too many books, too many scripts, too much writing, too many CDs, too many tapes, too many records.
I still haven't seen anything that opened in 2009 yet. But here is this weekend's action:
MONSTERS VS. ALIENS (4104 theaters). Early word is that it's okay, but no Pixar film. The 3-D will help, the high screen count will help. Prediction: $48.9 million for the weekend.
THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT (2732 theaters). Creepy commercials will bring people in. $17.3 million for the weekend.
12 ROUNDS (2331 theaters). The commercials are vague, while the LA Times didn't have an ad (or a review) today. $6.8 million.
Last weekend, KNOWING did a solid $24.6 million. I LOVE YOU, MAN did $17.8 million. DUPLICITY stiffed a bit with only $14.0 million.
