Weekend Box Office #187
The movie selections continue to be rather uninspiring. This weekend in wide release:
PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME (3646 theaters). The reviews have been okay, but there's just not much real hook here that is going to have people rushing out to see it. Still, it will benefit from the holiday weekend, and the lack of much else. Figure $41.5 for the 4-day weekend.
SEX AND THE CITY 2 (3445 theaters). Oy. I like a lot of women's movies, but you couldn't drag me to see this. Still, it'll do about $45.5 million over the 4 days.
Last weekend, SHREK 4 did $70.8 million, while MAGRUBER completely tanked, doing only $4 million.
