Weekend Box Office

Pssst! You like numbers, mister?

The Gods will not be mocked! After a promising Friday, Date Night comes in at #2 behind Clash Of the Titans 3D. The Carel/Fey comedy made $25 million vs Titan's $27 million (without rounding there's only about $1.5 mil difference) so it looks to me like the plastic polaroid glasses win again.

[varietyspeak]Inspirational weepie[/varietyspeak] Letters to God cracks the top ten with $1.1 million. Better see it! God is watching us, from a distance.

Speaking of a distance, the bottom o' the chart is inhabited by The Trouble With Turkel, out now for three weeks with $350 this week to show for its effort. I've seen worse. Figures, not movies. Frankly I got nothin' about this one, though any movie that stars a guy named Shark Firestone is at least worth sneaking into.

1 comment:

  1. Interestingly, from what I've read "Date Night" sold more tickets, but "CotT" edged it out because of the 3D ticket premium.

    And yes, Shark Firestone may be the coolest name since Gayle Storm or Shadoe Stevens.
