Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ Amasses $178.4M OverseasSUNDAY AM, 7TH UPDATE: COMING…I’m still on vacation but can’t ignore four new low-cost movies opening in North American wide release and performing worse than expected at the box office.
This was one of 2012′s worst weekends with overall box office $110M, or a big -27% off from last year.
Full analysis in the morning.
Universal’s R-rated comedy The Five–Year Engagement (2,936 theaters) from Judd Apatow’s banner is tanking.
Good thing it was low-budget. It fell victim to both of last weekend’s winners and one newcomer.
Sony/Screen Gems’ holdover Think Like A Man (2,014 theaters) will end up #1 (and may be the first ‘urban comedy’ to finish on top two weeks in a row since director Tim Story’s Barbershop).
Warner Bros’ The Lucky One (3,175 theaters) should end up #2. But also below Sony’s #3 Pirates! Band Of Misfits (3,358 theaters) which could jimp into second place by end of Sunday because of its kiddie matinee bump.
Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games (3,572 theaters) hangs in for #5 today as it inches towards $375M domestic cume.
Lionsgate’s Safe (2,266 theaters) and Relativity’s acquisition of Intrepid Pictures’ The Raven (2,203 theaters) are struggling this weekend.
Audiences handed out the following CinemaScores: The Five-Year Engagement ‘B-’, Pirates! ‘B’, Safe ‘B+’, The Raven ‘B’.
