Box-Office Wrap-Up: May 5 – May 7

ON

Color me confused this weekend. Mi3 opened less than Mi2, even though it’s a better film. It opened way less than my projection which was clearly made while I was strung out on Meth. Ah well, we’ve always got next week together my fine feathered friends.

1. Mission: Impossible 3 $48.0m (My rank:#1, $24.9 Off)
The Tom Cruise backlash must have been far worse than I’d imagined. Hey TC, evidently the crazy stuff don’t play in the middle states. Life lesson, eh? Maybe take a break champ, stop talking for a bit.

2. RV $11.1m (My rank:#3, $2.3m Off)

There can’t be this many lobotomy patients or prisoners on weekend furloughs with tracking bracelets that don’t allow them out to a theater showing real movies. Either way I only feel shame.

3. An American Haunting $6.3m (My rank:#7, $1.0m Off)

I still know nothing about this one. I plan on keeping it that way. Willful ignorance is preferable to the alternative.

4. Stick It $5.5m (My rank:#5, $1.0M Off)

This one has staying power like I can only dream of.

5. United 93 $5.2m (My rank:#4, $2.1m Off)

Soon you will be going away my little challenge piece, back to that big forgetful movie place in to the sky. Crap, that was an unfortunate use of metaphors and I absolutely promise it was not on purpose. Even I’m not that sick.

6. Ice Age: The Meltdown $4.0m (My rank:#6, $1.6m Off)

How does everyone feel about the one about the Cars coming out? I feel like Pixar has been sliding into an abyss due to the mouse house.

7. Silent Hill $3.9m (My rank:#9, $.5m Off)

Who woulda thought a silent flick about nature would do this well? It shows to go ya, you can’t tell how a movie will do (unless you are me).

8. Scary Movie 4 $3.7m (My rank: Not Ranked)

We can only pray there will be no fifth one. Can we send in money to bribe them? Like a televangelist type of deal?

9. Akeelah and the Bee $3.4m (My rank: Not Ranked)

Spelling movies don’t play my fine internet friends. Follow the rules and go to the back of the line.

10. Hoot $3.4m (My rank:#2, $5.7m Off)

Absolutely DESTROYED by the general public. I salute you guys, I wouldn’t have seen this for love or money. Give me movies about bats (as opposed to owls) or give me death. Don’t tread on me. I’m not the ocean over here. Join Mypsace. Be my pal. Click the link at the bottom and live that dream. Ride or die, holla back.

Here is the MySpace info. Do it, you know you want to dirty human.
