Box Office Results: Meatballs Dominates Again
Posted 09.27.09 by reelz
|Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
||Meatballs stays very strong in second week, easily beating the competition.
||Bruce Willis sci-fi pic in second place, but with an $80M budget this looks like a losing investment.
||Box office for this remake is as tepid as the reviews, maybe worse.
||Everyone still wondering why Matt Damon gained 30 pounds for this.
|I Can Do Bad All By Myself
||Latest Tyler Perry vehicle in top 5 for third week in a row.
Bomb of the Week: Pandorum looked like a poor-man's Alien and then performed like one. It wasn't screened for critics but word of its suckiness got out fast because it earned just $4.8M on a $40M budget.
On the other end of the spectrum, Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story earned $240K on just 4 screens, an unheard-of $60K/screen average.
