Despite mixed reviews for Pain & Gain, Director Michael Bay‘s latest Crime-Action-Comedy starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Mark Wahlberg, it still finds flexes its muscles on-top of the Box Office with $20 million from 2,950 theatres. Made for $26 million, the Film easily is set to pay its bill for Paramount Pictures, earning 47% on the Tomatometer at Rotten Tomatoes and a C+ CinemaScore from Audiences.
Last week’s Champ, Oblivion slips to number two this weekend with $17.4 million from 3,792 theatres for Universal Pictures, by all means still going strong and far ahead of another former number one Film in 42, finding itself in third spot for Warner Bros. with $10.7 million in its third week of release.
Opening universally panned (6% on the Tomatometer), Rom-ComThe Big Wedding debuts in fourth for Lionsgate Films/eOne Films with $7.5 million. Made for $35 million, this one is a bit of a disappointment considering its stellar Cast which includes Robert DeNiro, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Susan Sarandon, Ben Barnes, Robin Williams, Katherine Heigl and Topher Grace. Audiences gave it a C+ CinemaScore, just one of two Films to debut in the Top Ten this weekend.
Olympus Has Fallen is extremely resilient in its sixth week at number eight with $2.8 million, now earning $92.9 million in its domestic run. The Place Beyond the Pines continues to be a bit of a Slow-Burner at number nine with just $2.6 million for eOne Films/Focus Features, a bit baffling considering its heavily-fronted Cast with Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling and also undeniably strong reviews.
Jurassic Park rounds-out the Top Ten with $2.3 million for Universal Pictures, earning $42.4 million in its second run at the theatres in 3-D.
Boys rule the Box Office this Easter Weekend with G.I. Joe: Retaliation debuting big with a stellar $40.8 million across North America, from 3,719 theatres. Critics panned the $135-million Blockbuster from Paramount Pictures, but Audiences reacted well with an A- CinemaScore. This latest Installment in the Franchise stars Bruce Willis, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Channing Tatum and Adrianne Palicki.
In second this weekend is last week’s Champ The Croods from 20th Century Fox with $26.6 million in its second week of release. The Animated Feature takes advantage of the lack of Family-oriented Flicks out this weekend. To-date it has grossed an impressive $88.8 million in North America.
Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor debuts in third this weekend from 2,047 theatres – yet another successful release from the Actor/Writer/Director/Producer and overall Magnate. Earning $22.5 million, the Drama-Thriller stars Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Lance Gross, Kim Kardashian, Brandy Norwood and Vanessa Williams; it does not star Perry in male nor female form. Critics didn’t love the Film, earning 17% at Rotten Tomatoes.
Olympus Has Fallen slips to fourth in its second week of release with $14.1 million after a solid debut last week in second spot, just ahead of former Champ Oz the Great and Powerful from Disney with $11.7 million in fifth.
The Host unfortunately didn’t translate to big numbers despite it being an Adaptation of beloved Twilight Author Stephanie Meyer‘s Novel of the same name. Reviews were outright vicious, tallying-in at 12% on Rotten Tomatoes. It debuts in sixth with $11 million for Open Road Films/eOne Films.
Well-reviewed Spring Breakers by Director/Writer Harmony Korine lands in ninth with its expansion to 1,379 theatres with $2.5 million. To date it has earned $10 million and despite strong limited release numbers, this didn’t translate as strongly with its expansion.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone in its third week of release, rounds out the Top Ten with $1.2 million.
Debuting atop the Box Office this weekend is The Croods from Dreamworks/20th Century Fox, earning $44 million from 4,046 theatres in North America. Earning positive reviews from Critics, tallying 64% on the Tomatometer at Rotten Tomatoes and even strong reviews from audiences with an A CinemaScore, the Animated Feature starring Ryan Reynolds, Nicolas Cage and Emma Stone was made for $135 million, still yet to be released overseas.
In second and certainly not disgraced is Antoine Fuqua‘s Olympus Has Fallen opening with $30.8 million for FilmDistrict/VVS Films, from 3,098 theatres. Overall, reviews have been mixed with it earning 55% over at Rotten Tomatoes, but audiences responded v. well, giving an A- CinemaScore. After multiple Box Office Misfires of late, Gerard Butler re-asserts his standing as a bankable Leading Man. The Film however was made for $70 million, which by Indie standards is astronomically high, but with positive buzz, this should translate into a bit of staying power in coming weeks and possibly its second run on Home Video.
Oz The Great and Powerful continues to be a major force, slipping to third but still garnering $20.8 million in its third week and should shortly surpass the $200 million mark domestically.
Meanwhile The Call, last weekend’s Runner-Up, earns $9.1 million in its second week of release, just ahead of Tina Fey and Paul Rudd-headlining Rom-ComAdmission in fifth with $6.6 million for Focus Features/eOne Films.
Amazingly, Spring Breakers in Limited Release finds itself in sixth with $5 million from only 1,104 theatres and next weekend will see a release in select Canadian cities including Toronto. Reviews are solid for the Harmony Korine Flick starring James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson.
Former Champion Identity Thief still is hanging tough for Universal Pictures with $2.6 million from 2,166 theatres, while Snitch rounds-out the Top Ten with $1.9 million. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who stars in the latter, also will be making his presence felt with G.I. Joe: Retaliation, out next week.
