Weekend Box Office

This is my town, these are my numbers, and I'm directing this scene.

It's late April and we're between blockbusters... now is the time, before summer ramps up, for the studios to release their 2nd tier profitable-but-not-huge product. Hence at #1, Lionsgate's Kick-Ass. The weirdo action-comedy based on a graphic novel made only $19 million, and it'll drop rapidly until it develops a small cult following from screenings on Showtime.

At #4, Death At A Funeral. It might have made Tracey Morgan marketable but it appears to have not, dragging in $16 mil. Again, possible cult status.

At #24 Percy Jackson and the Olympians made $229K; but more importantly features my friend Maria Olsen in a bit part. Go Maria!
