WEEKEND BOX-OFFICE

DEPP CRUSHES COMPETITION

I guess PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN beating THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN wasn't as big of a surprise as anyone would have thought, but what's the deal with the sudden sequel backlash? Other than THE MATRIX RELOADED and X2, barely any of the highly touted summer follow-ups seem poised to beat their predecessors' box-office grosses. What's up with that?

THE MATRIX: $171M
THE MATRIX RELOADED: $272M*

X-MEN: $157M
X-MEN 2: $211M*

FAST AND THE FURIOUS: $ 145M
2 FAST 2 FURIOUS: $121*

LEGALLY BLONDE: $ 95M
LEGALLY BLONDE 2: $63*

TERMINATOR 2: $205M
TERMINATOR 3: $ 111M*

CHARLIE'S ANGELS: $125
CHARLIE'S ANGELS 2: $82*

* still in theaters

Could it be that audiences are just sick of seeing the same shit re-done in a different package? Hmmmmm, now there's a thought, Hollywood. In that same vein, you might also want to consider the solid opening of PIRATES, a film that might finally put the ol' "pirate movie curse" in the backburner, as well as the massive grosses for two original non-sequel flicks: BRUCE ALMIGHTY ($ 231M*) and FINDING NEMO ($ 291M*). Either way, something seems to be up with this summer's major bout of sequelities and the coming weekends won't be any different with BAD BOYS 2 and TOMB RAIDER 2 waiting in the wings.
