Weekend Box-Office: February 11-13, 2011

02.13.2011

Baby, baby, baby, ooooh....


How is the dude in the background NOT staring at her ass?!?

The first month of 2011 was a disaster in terms of box-office figures, but thanks to Adam Sandler and a cute short Canadian kid with a goofy haircut, things have picked up tremendously during the 2nd week of February as both JUST GO WITH IT and JUSTIN BIEBER: NEVER SAY NEVER, scored openings of over $30M respectively! As of today, Sandler's film is a little ahead, but remember that the Sunday numbers are just "estimates", so things might change once the "actual figures" are announced on Monday.

Either way, both films are already considered successful, especially the Bieber film which apparently only cost $13M to put together. Does that mean we can expect a "sequel" soon? God help us all. If you're someone who gives 2 craps about Bieber and his rabid fanbase, check out the craziness that occurs when the Biebs "surprises" a roomful of fans prepping to watch his movie. Yipes. Sandler, on the other hand, just keeps on trucking despite extremely negative reviews on this film and his last film, GROWN-UPS (that film ended up making $162M -- the 2nd highest gross of his career, right behind BIG DADDY's $163M). I dig Sandler and most of his films, but he's starting to release crap at this point, so I wish he would slow down a little and get back to creating original comedies, not just 90-minute time-fillers (i.e. mortgage payments for his friends).

The other 2 films that were released this past week also did very well, especially GNOMEO & JULIET, an animated film that made close to $26M and became the highest grossing animated February release of all-time! THE EAGLE also managed a decent opening in 4th place with close to $9M. Also, I'm not sure how this bodes for the Oscars coming up on February 27th, but THE KING'S SPEECH is now in its 12th week of release, and is still hanging around in the top 10. In fact, It's still making decent returns with $7M added to its coffers this past weekend, bringing its total closer to the $100M mark (it currently sits at $93M). People love watching rich royals with stutters, I guess. I tease.

The 4 films to get booted from the top 10 this weekend include THE RITE ($29M), THE MECHANIC ($25M), BLACK SWAN ($99M) and THE DILEMMA ($48M). The latter film can be considered the most disappointing with all those "names" in the cast, Ron Howard as the director and its $70M price tag. I'm looking forward to seeing Vince Vaughn in a good movie again one day.

Next week sees the release of 3 new movies including Liam Neeson's seeming return to the world of TAKEN, in a film called UNKNOWN, which looks a lot like the former film (which grossed a massive $145M in January of 2009). Let's just say, he's "hunting down" people again here. Good shit! The last film from the unpredictable director DJ Caruso is some kind of teen sci-fi movie called I AM NUMBER FOUR. Caruso is hit-and-miss as he has created some cool flicks like DISTURBIA and THE SALTON SEA, but also pieces of shit like TAKING LIVES, TWO FOR THE MONEY and EAGLE EYE. Not sure how this one will turn out, but on the surface, it ain't looking promising. And finally, Martin Lawrence is back, people! The film is called BIG MOMMA'S: LIKE FATHER LIKE SON. 'Nuff said. So which film do you think will be #1 next weekend? VOTE NOW!!

I'll be really happy to see Black Swan cross $100 million. Aranofsky & co. deserve the success for such an excellent movie.

I'm really surprised by Gnomeo and Juliet

Because second rate animated movies don't really open this big. I honestly thought it would've been another Alpha and Omega, but hey, it's not like there's a lot of kids movies out.

2011 has been a joke so far, and not a good one!

Wake me up when March gets here. Then we'll finally have our first taste of quality movies with stuff like Battle:L.A., Rango, Paul and Sucker Punch. So far though 2011 has been the worst year in a long time for movies worth seeing in a theater.

This news would be easier to take if there were more pictures of Brooklyn Decker, then again pictures of her would make any terrible news bearable. My job should've gave me a 10 pg pictorial of her before they fired me.

the highest grossing animated February release of all-time!

It's not like there's a long tradition of releasing animated movies in February is there?
Although I do have the feeling there is one released every two weeks, there used to be a time there were only two animated features released in a whole year.

yes, you're right...
And they weren't in 3D, so the price ticket was lower. In this case, it's easy to break records... Still, Gnomeo & Juliet isn't bad at all.

These first few months of releases have been really meh. March can't get here soon enough, I'm anxious to see Adjustment Bureau and Battle:LA. Also, was I alone in thinking eagle eye was actually pretty good?

I was very pleasantly surprised by Just Go With It. The trailer for it was rather uninspiring and generic, but the movie turned out to be pretty good.

Not surprising to see Just Go With It at number one.

I Am Number Four actually looks pretty good. Just reminds me of a watered down version of Smallville.

And Big Momma's House 3? The first one was funny and the best, but Martin Lawrence should just stick to doing Bad Boys movies.

Well I AM NUMBER FOUR is quite watchable, for a "fantasy action franchise for teenagers" wannabe. It's entertaining, kind of like JUMPER... But better.
