Looks like audiences “got a pump in” at the Box Office this weekend, as they made Michael Bay‘s, Pain & Gain, the Number #1 film to see! As this was Bay’s “vacation” flick from the Transformers franchise, is was on a much smaller budget; only $25mil. The film has brought in $20mil this weekend and won’t hit international theatres until August; thus making it a success in it’s first week.
Aside from that, the big news is that Iron Man 3 shattered the International Box Office with a $195mil debut weekend! That surpasses the $185mil that The Avengers opened up to last weekend. It will hit the US and Canada this upcoming Thursday, and I’m excited to see if it crosses $100mil on opening weekend. I’m sure Disney and Marvel are pulling a Scrooge McDuck and swimming in a vault of cash right now.
Below, is the rest of the horrible box office. Especially with newcomer, The Big Wedding, debuting at $7mil.
|1.||Pain & Gain||$20,000,000||$20|
|4.||The Big Wedding||$7,500,000||$7.5|
|6.||G.I. Joe: Retaliation||$3,620,000||$116.3|
|7.||Scary Movie 5||$3,457,000||$27.4|
|8.||Olympus Has Fallen||$2,768,000||$93|
|9.||The Place Beyond the Pines||$2,699,000||$16.2|
|10.||Jurassic Park 3D||$2,310,000||$43.6|
