Weekend Receipts: Immortals Sends Jack and Jill Downhill to # 2 Slot
Even though it didn’t quite slay Jack and Jill within the box office — an even more resounding spanking might’ve restored my belief in humanity, however, many, lots of people still showed up in this area for your Adam Sandler twinsies comedy — Tarsem’s fantasy actioner Immortals exceeded anticipation visiting some surprising $32 million # 1 opening, the most effective ever debut for studio Relativity Media. Also: Puss in Boots and Tower Heist ongoing to slide lower the ranks, with J. Edgar developing a decent go of items to accomplish the most effective 5. Participate in for that Weekend Receipts! 1. Immortals Gross: $32,000,000 (new) Screens: 3,112 (PSA $10,283) Days: 1 Bloggers had Tarsem’s bloody spin on Greek mythology known as to obtain behind the twin star energy of Adam Sandler playing opposite themselves, but surprise! Immortals shot to Number One at first, due to a mostly youthful crowd together with a marketing campaign that invoked the title of 300, Zack Snyder’s stylized period ab-fest. The auspicious opening is a superb sign for future Superman Henry Cavill, who makes his action debut since the sword-swinging, sandal-wearing Theseus. 2. Jack and Jill Gross: $26,000,000 (new) Screens: 3,438 (PSA $7,563) Days: 1 It could arrived a smidge beneath the $Thirty Dollars million opening range conventional an Adam Sandler movie, but $26 million cost of ticket customers still examined a clip and ads and abysmal reviews for Jack and Jill and thought, “Gee, why not?” (Furthermore the fact it got a b -- rating within the under-18 segment in the asked audience.) I be sad for humanity. Now when was Adam Sandler just prone to completely quit making Re-Do, already? 3. Puss in Boots Gross: $25,500,000 ($108,809,000) Screens: 3,903 (PSA $6,533) Days: 3 (Change: -22.9%) The Shrek spin-off broke $100 million domestic now, showing some endurance within the third week of release. Guess meaning Puss in Boots 2 announcement arrives every single day, right? 4. Tower Heist Gross: $13,200,000 ($43,900,000) Screens: 3,370 (PSA $3,917) Days: 2 (Change: -45.1%) Give Tower Heist another day or two plus it’ll fade out of your collective memory, such as this fever dream many of us had where Brett Ratner was pointing the Oscars. '! As if. 5. J. Edgar Gross: $11,470,000 (new) Screens: 1,910 (PSA $6,005) Days: 1 Clint Eastwood’s would-be Oscar heavyweight shrank in stature now due to mixed compares the great Academy awards giant of the year it ain’t. Even combined, the prestige sheen in the biopic and star energy of Leonardo diCaprio (in some guy makeup! Making eyes at Armie Hammer! Speaking getting an interesting accent!) couldn’t even buoy J. Edgar to fit the opening levels of Hereafter, which only agreed to become a film about Matt Damon seeing dead people. Follow Jen Yamato on Twitter. Follow Movieline on Twitter.
