2006.04.18 - BoxOffice News

Scary Movie 4 (2006) literally lit up the box office this weekend adn broke all sorts of records, like best Easter opening. With $40.2M, it definitely surpassed most predictions, but with average reviews at best, and the genre of the movie, it may actually prove hard to just reach $100M. By any means though, this has been a successful franchine, and this fourth and final chapter of this funny trilogy is already a success.

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (2006) continues to do well with $20M in its third weekend. The movie will break $150M any day now and will be on its way to try to break $200M.

Benchwarmers, The (2006) also did well for this type of movie and is apparently, get ready, the most successful Baseball-themed movie ever... Yeah, you heard right. With an additional $9.9M, the movie now sits at a little bit over $35M and should reach $50M by the time its run is over.

Wild, The (2006) however is already a bomb, and an expensive mistake for Disney. A virtual copy of last year's Madagascar (2005) (although you can't really blame plagiarism as the movie was already well under production when the other movie came out), the movie simply didn't catch the eye of many people. The entire production ran through many difficulties, with delays, budget overrun (ending costing over $80M for an intial budget of just $60M), and quite a demoralizing moment i am sure when Madagascar came out with the same storyline a full year ahead. Tough.
