Sorry for the gap in posts, folks, but the last few weeks of movies has really been a big pile of suck, and talking about how much money they made didn't really interest me too much. (Whoo-hoo! Run-on sentences!)
This past weekend was really fascinating, though.
Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star was the number 1 film in the country this past weekend...
...with a whopping SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS.
7 mil? This officially makes Dickie Roberts the first film to both bomb and conquer the box office simultaneously.
(You know, to be honest, I didn't even know Dickie Roberts had opened this weekend. Seriously. the ads are on non-stop, but they were clearly unsuccessful.)
The only other new movie, The Order, opened in a disappointing 6th place with $4.3 million.
Salvation, however, is on the horizon. Next week sees the opening of a triple threat of movies that officially open the Fall quality movie season:
Matchstick Men, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, and (in certain cities) Lost in Translation.
Movies can be good, kids. Don't be afraid to go see one.
COME BACK QUEEN BEE!!!
