Box Office Wrap up 7/7/2013 top charting movies
This weekends Box Office wrap up features yet again another animated movie dominating the box office, and punking out another real live leading man in Johnny Depp (Brad feels your pain Johnny). It offered a mild surprise in Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain Which did amazingly well for a stand up comedy movie and exceeded all expectations.
Despicable Me 2 had one of the best debuts ever for an animated movie, For the three-day period, Despicable Me 2 earned Through its first five days, Despicable Me 2 earned $143.1 million., which is on par with Toy story 3 141 million, earning it top 5 status for animated movies. It’s also way higher than the 2010 original’s $56.4 million opening. No doubt their ad campaign focusing on the minions, that made the first movie so lovable generated alot of hype for this film.
The Lone Ranger took in $48.7 million in the box office its first five days. Which isn’t bad, but considering this is Disney and the films budget of 200 mil. It is certainly a disappointment. The lackluster reviews it has been receiving doesn’t bode well for the film.
Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain took in 17.4 million which makes it the fifth highest grossing stand up in box office history, this places him amongst some elite company, and with all the positive reviews we should start to see a major push on him.
