Jason Voorhees Tribute and Murderer from B.I.G. Sergio

HUGE Box Office for Fast and Furious


HUGE Box Office for Fast and Furious

Well, in one of my most anticipated movies of the year I assumed the Fast and Furious sequel would do well. Maybe $40 million. But, whoa. The reunion of Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, and Michelle Rodriguez proved to be the biggest non holiday opening in Universal's history for a 3 day week haul. The sequel pulled in a MONSTER $72 million dollars at the US box office and another $30.1 million internationally. Bringing its total to a crazy $102 million in its first weekend. And far as horror goes. Well, The Haunting in Connecticut pulled in another respectable $9.5 million for a nice total of $37 million. Which leads you to believe it will finish some where north of $55 million easily. Taken from Liam Neesom continues to $1.5 million raising its total to a big $139 million dollars. And if you haven't seen it. Well, shit its one of the best thrillers in a long time. The thriller/scifi venture The Knowing with Nick Cage held solid in 4th place with another $8 million and raising its total to a respectable $58 million. The Last House on the Left can be considered a success taking in a total of $30 million dollars now. Another opening was Alien Trespass. The scifi flick opened in just 40 theaters to a not so great $1,037 per screen for a $42,900. Ouch. That per screen total does not bode well for a wider release. When you consider Fast and Furious had a $20,000 per screen total.
