Weekend Box Office #144
An underwhelming weekend, at least for wide-release movies:
G-FORCE (3697 theaters). This looks like it is skewing very young, and I'm not sure how much adult appeal there is to it at all. Call it $24.5 million for the weekend, though it could do a lot more or less.
THE UGLY TRUTH (2882 theaters). Reviews don't seem to be very solid, while the film doesn't seem to have much of a hook, and the leads aren't really draws in a vacuum. Call it $9.5 million.
ORPHAN (2750 theaters). I heard what the twist is, and it made me roll my eyes (no spoilers for those who might actually drag their butts out to see it). It'll probably do well enough. $15.5 million.
Last weekend, HARRY POTTER 6 did $77.8 million, for $158 million in its first 5 days. Not bad, but not huge huge huge.
