2006.06.06 - BoxOffice News

What a surprising weekend. After all sorts of records broke last week with X 3, The Last Stand (2006), few had predicted it would fall so fast and so hard. Having made almost $103M in its opening weekend, the film fell over 67% and only managed $34M, finishing second for its sophomore weekend. That's a huge drop second only to Hulk, The (2003) 3 years ago. The movie did break $175M though, and if it doesn't fall further next week, should easily reach $250M by the time it's done.

Break Up, The (2006) beat all expectations and was the movie that finished first this weekend. It saw one of the best opening ever for a Romantic Comedy with $39.2M in spite of average reviews. The movie is pretty much assured to make $100M, but the real question is whether it could match last year's surprise $210M hit Wedding Crashers (2005) since that's what people will compare it with now from a box office potential point of view.

Over The Hedge (2006) probably had its last weekend in the spotlight before the Pixar juggernaut Cars (2006) comes out next week. With $20.6M in its third weekend, the movie did rather well and easily passed the $100M mark. The movie will finish close to $150M, which is not as high as studios had expected, but a hit nevertheless.

In other news, Da Vinci Code, The (2006) is slowly making its way to $200M, and Mission: Impossible 3 (2006) is struggling at around $125M. The movie is a disappointment, as it will not even make $150M, but its international tally has been good as it passed $300M this weekend, so there is a little bit of profit to show (the movie was expensive to make). Finally, United 93 (2006), the best movie of the year so far, just passed the $30M bar.
