Yep. predictable on Hop. I am 100 percent surprised on Insidious, and Source Code did awesome.
Too bad Hop is #1 and NOT Source Code (Duncan Jones is a genius).

I hope Source Code can crack $80 million.

Good for Source Code and fantastic for Insidious. At a budget of only $1.5 million, Insidious is an incredible success.

A superb hold for Insidious -- as noted, horror films tend to drop 50-60% in their second weekend, and Wan's latest fell by only 26%. Not good for Highness.

Indeed, that's a terrific number for Insidious. And yeah, not good for Your Highness, though not surprising at all. It's not a very good movie and it was a tough sell. Thankfully, pretty much everyone involved has something coming out in the near future that should help them rebound quickly.

I'm pretty shocked Hanna put up 12 million, 3 million more than Your Highness...I assumed the average movie goer would have chosen the comedy over the hit girl assassin. But as for me I definitely still wanna see both of them...

When Rio arrives everyone will forget about that bunny movie. Remakes still make box office gold and now thanks to Arthur i guess they'll remake Tootsie after all. PG-13 horror still alive and well amd Insidious is no exception. I guess if the Saw movies were PG-13 rated it would triple the amount of money Avatar gained at the box office. Good to see Hanna at the top 3. Too bad for Your Highness. I guess moviegoers are sick of those Judd Apatow-like comedy films.

Yikes. Box-office is officially in the dumps. This was the weekend that was supposed to indicate otherwise, but these numbers are weak. I foresee a lot of disappointing numbers for big releases this summer.

All you gotta do these days is released movies for kids or Sandler movies for the 20-40 years that still want to act like teens. Or release over dramatic movies with black casts to appeal to the black audience.


They do those things, they'll make more money.

That is possible, but maybe these bad numbers mean that people can't see movies much now, but in the summer they will.

Plus let's wait and see if the new fast and the furious underperforms and if it does then we can run around with our heads cut off.

Thinking about it... This film just doesn't have an audience. It's too late to be really connected to the other 3 films (11 years?) and too soon to draw in the older audience via nostalgia. Craven went through the same thing with "A New Nightmare".

Yeah right! Expect Fast Six soon before Charlie Sheen yells "i'm winning!"

Another animated movie doing well and it ain't a Disney or Pixar production? I smell bad karma for Cars 2.

Looks like the battle between PG-13 and R rated horror movies still clashes at the big screen. Good to see Hanna at the top 5.

Its high now..I just paid $4.15 a gallon yesterday.

On a side political note..I find it ironic that the media hasnt been screaming for Obama to do something cuz when Bush was in and gas hit over $3 a gallon, they were demanding he do something about it.

Not taking either prez side, cuz I dont care for either guy but the irony cant be lost on people who choose to pay attention

Scream 4 may have been a "whimper" box office wise, take these into consideration.

-it was rated R (decent opening though for a genre movie)
-11 years after Scream 3 (which wasn't so hot)
-wasn't in 3D
-little marketing
-Dimension isn't such a big studio since they are now with The Weinstein Co.
-major competition

I was disappointed at first with the box office performance, but I look at these factors and feel better.

And I'd also throw in that kids' movies can actually really clean up at the box-office (especially lately it seems).

This might be it for the "Scream" series, and honestly it might be better that way.

Scream 4 may not have met expectations BUT it's still doing well. In fact, the movie is practically already making a profit that is because the movie has made an additional 18 mil in international box office and the movie only cost 40 mil. to make.

Hollywood take note. This is why having a modest budget helps. Scream 4 underperforms at the box office, and it's STILL doing well.

I thought S 4 would have performed better but it still did good. Maybe not as good as the studio was hoping but it will still be profitable.

I can easily see them cranking out one or two more but with an even smaller budget. With the two PA films, Last Exorcism and now Insidious making huge returns on such small investments, the future of horror is low budget. Quarantine and The Crazies performed well also on budgets of 15 and 20 mil respectively

You don't need 80 mil to make an excellent horror film or to make a profit. This isn't a new concept but sometimes Hwood needs a reminder.

Don't get me wrong, i still want my mid budget Resident Evil films. The latest one cost 60 mil but made 300 mil plus worldwide, so even that was a very lucrative venture.

I would say that is an anomaly, most horror films will have modest or miniscule budgets now.

And you know what, the budget was no reflection on the quality, i was impressed by all the aforementioned films ( minus Insidious, i have yet to see that one ) listed in the second paragraph.

Nice to know that.

I thought $40 million for a budget for a slasher was extreme (Rob Zombie's Halloween 1-2 cost $15 million) but I'm glad the international and domestic are making it up.

Next will be the home market.
