Posted on: June 14th, 2009 BOX OFFICE BEAT: The Two Week Hangover
Welcome to Box Office Beat - you can check it out every Sunday night for the financial fallout from the weekend’s releases.
This weekend was an interesting one, with The Hangover staying in first place for a second week in a row. Disney/Pixar’s Up remains in second place, same as last week. The only entries of note are The Taking of Pelham 123 entering the box office charts in 3rd place and Eddie Murphy’s new steaming pile of kiddy turd, Imagine That, amazingly taking last weeks Terminator slot in sixth.
The highly anticipated and greatly touted sci-fi flick Moon also opened in limited release. Showing on only 8 screens it entered the chart in twentieth place.
Here’s the top 5 as it looks right now:
1. The Hangover – $33,415,000
2. Up – $30,515,000
3. The Taking of Pelham 123 – $25,000,000
4. Night at the Museum II – $9,600,000
5. Land of the Lost – $9, 153,000
That’s it for last week; this week sees Year One (Jack Black, Michael Cera) and The proposal (Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds) in release.
