‘Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax’ continues in 1st place

'Dr. Seuss' The Lorax' continues in 1st place

The animated film ‘Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax’ continues to hold on to the number one spot in the box office with $39 million dollars. The story of the adorable orange chubby creature keeps on doing far better than the rest.

Surprisingly the sci-fi adventure ‘John Carter’, only accumulated $30.6 million dollars. It could be because of the fact that it didn’t get good reviews because many believe that the money invested in it ($250 million dollars) didn’t deliver what it should have.

The craziest party of the year, ‘Project X’ fell to third place collecting $11.5 million dollars, which gives the top leading films a good mix in the box office. The horror film that premiered this weekend, ‘Silent House’ with $7 million, follows it.

 

 

The Top 10 Movies in the Box Office are:

1.Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax – $39 mil

2. John Carter – $30.6 mil

3. Project X – $11.5 mil

4. Silent House – $7 mil

5. Act of Valor – $7 mil

6. A Thousand Words – $6.3 mil

7. Safe House -$5 mil

8. The Vow – $4 mil

9. This Means War – $3.7 mil

10 Journey 2: The Mysterious Island – $ 3.7 mil

'Megamind' is #1 at the box office!

After a disappointing few weekends, the US box office enjoyed a healthy bump in the last three days as three new movies opened wide to successful returns. Topping the charts was DreamWorks’ latest 3D ‘toon, Megamind, with the superhero comedy earning $47.6 million, putting it ahead of Todd Phillips’ new comedy Due Date. The Robert Downey Jr/Zach Galifianakis road trip pic nabbed a strong $33.5 million, winning second place.

Tyler Perry’s latest, For Colored Girls, was third with a solid $20.1 million. Rounding out the top five were Red, which is holding strong, and dropped just one place to fourth with $8.8 million, despite having been out for a month now, and Saw 3D, which toppled from the top to land in fifth, adding $8.2 million for a running total of $38.8 million.

But though Jigsaw and co are still ahead of Paranormal Activity 2 in terms of chart placing, the scary sequel is easily outperforming the torture title, adding $7.2 million to a current total of $77.2 million after three weeks. They’re both put to shame by Jackass 3D in seventh, which made $5 million this weekend and is well over $110 million.

Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter slipped to eighth with $4.1 million and Secretariat dropped to ninth with $4 million. Finally, in 10th, we find The Social Network, which will likely leave the top 10 next week and made $3.6 million.

1. Megamind, $47,7 millon

2. Due Date, $33,5 millons

3. For Colored Girls, $20,1 millons

4. Red, $8,9 millons

5. Saw 3D, $8,2 millons

6. Paranormal Activity 2, $7,3 millons

7. Jackass 3D, $5,1 millons

8. Hereafter, $4,02 millons

9. Secretariat, $4 millons

10. The Social Network, $3,6 millons

‘Avatar’ is #1 at the box office, again

'Avatar' is #1 at the box office, again

The estimated $278 million in weekend box-office revenue broke the previous record of roughly $253 million set in July 2008, the weekend “The Dark Knight” was released.

A diverse group of films drew throngs to the multiplexes: James Cameron’s “Avatar” pushed strongly into its second week while “Sherlock Holmes,” “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel” and “It’s Complicated” all opened.

“Avatar,” the 3-D epic, topped them all, earning $75 million for 20th Century Fox, according to studio estimates Sunday. Remarkably, that was only a 3 percent drop from its opening weekend total of $77.4 million. (Blockbusters typically drop 30-50 percent in the second weekend.) In its 10 days of release, “Avatar” has made $212 million domestically — and could be on its way to a worldwide gross of over $1 billion.

“This thing is going to be playing and playing, I can tell you that,” said Bert Livingston, 20th Century Fox distribution executive. “There’s a lot of business out there. Everybody’s got good movies out.”

In second was “Sherlock Holmes,” Guy Ritchie’s reboot of the franchise with Robert Downey Jr. starring as Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective. The Warner Bros. film opened with a weekend total of $65.4 million, including a record Christmas Day debut of $24.9 million.

It was a start that seemed sure to pave the way for sequels. Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros., called the result “sensational.”

“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,” which opened Wednesday, took in $50.2 million on the weekend and $77.1 million in its five days of release. The film, also from Fox, earned an impressive $18.8 on Wednesday alone. The strong start suggested that “Squeakquel” was likely to surpass its 2007 original, which made $217 million.

Also opening was Nancy Meyer’s “It’s Complicated,” the romantic comedy from starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. With an audience 72 percent female, the Universal film took in $22.1 million, a solid debut.

The buffo Christmas weekend results spelled good things for all the films in release in the coming week — one of the most lucrative of the year.

“We all know what next week means to the industry. This is a huge,” said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal. “Christmas is past us. No more shopping, no more returning. College kids are home. … I’m so optimistic about what the next weekend holds for us.”

Said Livingston: “Starting this Monday, every day is a Saturday.”

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Final figures will be released Monday.

1. “Avatar,” $75 million.

2. “Sherlock Holmes,” $65.4 million.

3. “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,” $50.2 million.

4. “It’s Complicated,” $22.1 million.

5. “Up in the Air,” $11.8 million.

6. “The Blind Side,” $11.7 million.

7. “The Princess and the Frog,” $8.7 million.

8. “Nine,” $5.5 million.

9. “Did You Hear About the Morgans?” $5 million.

10. “Invictus,” $4.4 million.
