Weekend Box Office #137
Yuck, it's raining. It's not supposed to rain in Los Angeles in June.
Opening this weekend:
LAND OF THE LOST (3521 theaters). It's a good time for a movie that looks like dumb fun, and it it should grab the family audience. I'm going to take a wild guess and say $46.5 million for the weekend, though I could be way off.
THE HANGOVER (3269 theaters). I gave the makers of this some notes along the way, and though I'd like to take credit for making it the funny movie it apparently is, it's likely I really had little to do with that. Still, see it, so they can keep paying me to read other things. Prediction: $18.7 million for the weekend, but it should hold well.
MY LIFE IN RUINS (1164 theaters). I haven't seen any commercials for this film, which stars Nia Vardelos from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". I'm not sure she has enough of a real following to make this a big hit through. $3.6 million for the weekend.
Last weekend, UP made $68.1 million, and DRAG ME TO HELL made $15.8 million.
STAR TREK became the first movie this year to crash over the $200 million mark, though it likely won't make it to $300 million.
