Weekend Box Office #129
Finally went to the movies last weekend, and saw I LOVE YOU MAN (good) and KNOWING (ultimately didn't quite work).
This weekend's offerings aren't all that tempting:
HANNAH MONTANA (3118 theaters). Her concert movie made a lot of money, but it's going to take a lot of little girls to make this one hit big. Look for it to do about $17.1 million for the weekend.
OBSERVE AND REPORT (2727 theaters). Word on this one is that it's a lot darker than they are selling it as; it could be this generations THE CABLE GUY (which isn't a good thing). Though Seth Rogen has his fans, the hard-R rating (for profanity and non-Seth penis) might knock down the crowds. Call it $15.9 million, and look for it to drop like a stone on its second weekend.
DRAGONBALL Z (2181 theaters). Apparently fans are miffed at all the changes from the manga, including the absense of the main characters' big spiky hair. Oy. $7.4 million.
Last weekend, FAST & FURIOUS made a brain-frying $71 million. ADVENTURELAND only did $5.7 million.
