Seth Gordon’s comedy ‘Identity Thief’ takes over the number one spot with $36.6 million dollars. No one expected this movie to do so well, it reached an unexpected number; it certainly has enough heart mixed in to give audiences a satisfactory product. These are great news for Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy.
Last week’s number one ‘Warm Bodies’ dropped to number two with $$11.5 million dollars. This is director Jonathan Levine best outcome yet; the zombie craze and original script have given him great results.
‘Side Effects’ which had a very well known cast fought hard but ended up at number three with $10 million dollars. The movie had appeal given the actors and the interesting story, but despite that it doesn’t seem to have had all the elements.
The Top 10 in the Box Office are:
1. Identity Thief – $36.6 mil
2. Warm Bodies – $11.5 mil
3. Side Effects – $10 mil
