WEEKEND BOX-OFFICE

SPIDER-MAN / 2 = THE HULK?

Despite smashing the record for the biggest June release ever, previously held by AUSTIN POWERS: THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME with a $54 million opening weekend, THE HULK made approximately half of what the biggest Marvel comic book hero SPIDER-MAN grossed in its first three days, $114.8, as well as the most recent Marvel heroes X-MEN 2, with $85.8, as the green monster and its director Ang Lee grossed $62.6 million to finish at the #1 spot ahead of last week's first place winner: FINDING NEMO. It was the fifth biggest opening of the year, behind THE MATRIX RELOADED ($93.3), BRUCE ALMIGHTY ($86.4), X-MEN 2 ($85.6) and FINDING NEMO ($70.6).

Despite the studio brass claiming that this opening weekend was "not" a disappointment, you have to wonder with all the money being spent on the film's marketing and the entire picture budgeted at $150 million. At the same time, FINDING NEMO kept powering forward with yet another $20.5 million added to its coffers, taking its total over the $200 million mark, while a surprising THE ITALIAN JOB moved from its seventh place last week to fifth spot this week, closing in on $70 million overall. ALEX & EMMA didn't surprise anyone with a weak opening in 7th with only $6.2 million, while we should all thank movie-goers around North America for avoiding FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY like the plague, as it opened in 11th place with only $2.9 million in total grosses (which is about $2,899,999 more than what it should have made, in my dinky opinion).
