Pacific Rim Rocks Box Office!
Pacific Rim opened with a strong $38 million USA box office which was good but, only good for 3rd in the weekend box office tally. Despicable Me 2 ran neck and neck with Grown Ups 2 all weekend... They both traded places throughout the weekend.
Me 2 added another $44 million and now has a insane $229 million in USA box office. Throw in another $243 million overseas and that's $476 million for a budget of $76 million. Good chance we get a Me 3 at some point.
Grown Ups 2 despite absolutely horrible critical reviews grabbed $42.5 million. That made up more than half it's budget in the 1st week. Grown Ups 2 finished 2nd to Me 2. Pacific Rim was 3rd.
Rim may look like a borderline bomb except it opened internationally as well. The robot vs monster flick got another $53 million overseas. And finished with a huge $91 million dollar overall haul. Also, people on social media and word of mouth may prove strong for this flick. Every where I look somebody said it was good.
Lone Ranger pulled $11 million and now has $71 million in the USA. It has added a pretty impressive $48 million in overseas money for a $119 million total... Makes me wonder if it won't end up being like Waterworld. That pulled a very good overseas and dvd haul and last I check has made a good profit after being labeled one of the biggest bombs ever.
Man of Steel added $4.8 million. World wide the Superman reboot has made a massive $619 million.. World War Z has made massive money overseas. Totaling $247 million and another $177 million after a strong $9 million haul in the USA. That's $423 million world wide. A real box office smash.
