Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s, Ender’s Game opened to the #1 Spot at the Box Office this weekend. The film managed to pull in $28mil and beat out other newcomers, Last Vegas and Free Birds. Not exactly spectacular numbers, but at least it pulled out the win.
|7.||12 Years a Slave||$4,600,000||$8.7|
|8.||Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2||$4,200,000||$106.1|
More surprising was that Thor: The Dark World opened in foreign markets and managed to bring in over $104mil. This bodes that it should not only break the originals $65mil, but it may also break $100mil. The film looks to be a major step over the original, given that it takes place mostly on Asgard.
