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

Horror At the Box Office

Ok, so we finally have an actual horror movie to report on at the box office. Drag Me To Hell had a strong opening weekend with $16.6 million. Very respectable for any horror film. Though, I have to admit I was guessing more in the neighborhood of $25 million. Its always tough opening against family friendly flicks. The animation flick "UP" pulled a massive $68 million. Terminator Salvation held decent with $16 million and raising its total to $90 million dollars. It will hit the $100 million mark but, was hurt by having to open against Night at the Museum 2 last week. Think T4 would've been better off opening couple weeks after Transformers 2. No word yet on foreign box office for T4 but, guessing it will haul in a ton just on foreign release. T2 and T3 grossed almost $300 million on foreign release alone. So it wouldn't surprise me to have T4 still flirt with the $400 million mark. Which is sad considering I think its the most gritty and serious of all the Terminator movies and definitely strongest from a acting standpoint. Most sites I've seen fans are giving it B grades so at least its getting some respect. Star Trek continues to hit with another $12 million raising its total to a worldwide $301 million. Wolverine took $3.9 million and now has $315 million worldwide. Angels and Demons broke the $100 million mark in the US and now has a staggering $206 million worldwide. Also on the side of being a sneaky blockbuster. The Knowing has now earned $150 million dollars worldwide. Bet you didn't know that.
