It cost a reported $195 million, and needed to make a lot of that back on its opening weekend. The high end of speculation about its potential — 3D prices and all — was about $30 million. Now it looks as it “Jack the Giant Slayer” won’t clear $24 million on its opening weekend. Disaster. It’ll be lucky to earn $45 million by the time it’s finished its run, with “Oz” opening and sucking all its audience away next weekend.
“21 and Over” isn’t reaching its target audience, and “The Last Exorcism Part II” isn’t packing them in, either. A VERY weak post-Oscar blues weekend at the box office.
