Poor Barnabas Collins never stood a chance. Tim Burton’s ‘Dark Shadows‘ found itself clobbered to death over the weekend courtesy of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, who rode a perfect cocktail of hype and stellar word-of-mouth to an unprecedented second weekend. It’s no longer a question of whether or not ‘The Avengers‘ will be one of the biggest movies of all time, mainly because it already is one of the biggest movies of all time: after only nineteen days, it’s crossed the $1 billion mark. The question we should be pondering now is whether or not it will become the biggest movie of all time.
We knew it was going to make a lot of money. We knew there was a possibility that it would break box office records. What we didn’t know was that ‘The Avengers’ wasn’t just going to break the record for biggest box office opening of all time — it was going to smash it. Obliterate it. Pulverize it. Treat it like the Hulk treats puny human architecture. In three days, ‘The Avengers‘ took in over $200 million at the domestic box office.
‘The Hunger Games’ once again treated the competition like dots in a Pac-Man game, swallowing them all without a trace. It earned $61.1 million and took the top spot at the weekend box office for the second week in a row.
Liam Neeson’s movie about being hunted by a pack of rogue wolves, ‘The Grey,’ was apparently red meat to movie-goers. It brought in $20 million in its debut to take the top spot at the box office this weekend.
It’s Friday and guess what? It’s movie time! Headed home to cook some chili and watch some movies on Suddenlink on Demand. Can’t wait to kick off the shoes, turn on the heater, eat some food and watch a couple flick with the family.
