Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

BOX OFFICE REPORT: BATMAN CONTINUES TO FLY HIGH, STEP BROTHERS OPENS WELL AND X-FILES WANTED TO BELIEVE IT HAD AN AUDIENCE!

Warner Bros THE DARK KNIGHT continues to be an impressive force at the nations box-office as the acclaimed film had a 75 mill weekend, pulling in over 314 mill in its first 10 days of release. Pretty IMPRESSIVE!

Sony’s STEP BROTHERS looks to be a safe haven for those looking for laughs as the Will Ferrell comedy had a 30 mill weekend, bringing in 11.75 Friday in its first day in release.

Fox’s X-FILES: I Want to Believe appears to be dead on arrival as it opened to a disappointing 4 mill on Friday and only pulled in 10.2 mill for the entire weekend. Fox made a huge mistake by releasing the film just one week after the Batman juggernaut went into effect. This was much better suited for a backend of August date. It’s too bad, because I think it’s a pretty good movie. The movies budget was listed as 30 million. 

One other bit of box-office news of interest – It appears Universal’s movie musical Mamma Mia will have some legs as it’s consistently playing to the adult crowd and should eventually hit 100 mill at the U.S box-office when all is said and done. It pulled in another 17.8 mill over the weekend and did very consistent numbers throughout the week.  VIEW BOX OFFICE TOTALS
