With $52 million, Green Lantern flew into the top spot at the weekend box office, which is what we expected (and predicted) back on Friday. It wasn’t hard to see this coming, though, considering the summer’s other major superhero films (Thor and X-Men: First Class) both opened up at number one, though Green Lantern did earn less than its two predecessors.
The mutants are back, and as predicted (by me and 88% of you),X-Men: First Class came in at the top of the weekend box office with $56 million. Sound off in our poll and let us know what you thought of the movie. We also have some movie-related questions for you.
The Memorial Day Weekend used to mark the official start of the summer movie season (that is before Spider-Man debuted in early May and broke box office records), and based on the numbers it would appear M-Day is looking to take back those honors. The Hangover 2 premiered to mondo box office returns while Kung Fu Panda 2 clocked in at only $47.8 million. What did you think about both these movies?
The fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie steamrolled over the competition this weekend at the box office, putting up $90 million on the domestic front and $256 million worldwide, equaling an impressive $346 million total haul in just five days. Yes, we know critics were iffy about it, but what did you think?
Another weekend in the books, and Thor’s hammer maintained enough tenacity to top the box office yet again with a healthy $34 million, bringing its domestic gross to $119 million. But the big story this weekend didn’t revolve around Thor – instead, it was all about the ladies. Or, well, Bridesmaids to be more precise.
While it didn’t quite hit the $70 million mark that early estimates thought it might, Thor still managed to hammer out a $66 million opening weekend to claim the top spot at the box office. The Chris Hemsworth action adventure may have been hurt by Mother’s Day weekend festivities as the movie was marketed more toward...
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
