Weekend Box Office

I'm not makin' this stuff up - see the numbers here.

Hard as it is to believe, the number one movie this weekend was a remake of Clash Of The Titans. In 3D of course, but come on man! An eye-popping $61 million, for a nonsense frame around eye candy, just like the original. I haven't seen it; if they include the robot owl then all is forgiven.

#2 goes to the ever-amazing Tyler Perry and his Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too, a sequel to Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married. Though not working in 3D, Tyler Perry managed to pull down $29 million. That's $35 million in Tyler Perry dollars, which are the currency in Tylerville.

Miley Cyrus (who is not Hannah Montana) comes in at #4 with The Last Song, discussed elsewhere on this blog. The less said now about it the better, except to say that the $16 million it made probably was overspill from the movie that sold out the other auditorium.

Meanwhile at #100, a gay-themed drama called Breakfast With Scot generates $114. This has a release date of 2007, and I suspect there is only one print in the world, which the director is driving from theatre to theatre in his sub-compact Honda. Don't give up, man!
