Oscar winner Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe and a taste of Brad Pitt proved to be a winning line-up at the box office, as the derivative adventure comedy “The Lost City” racked up an impressive $31 million opening weekend.
Paramount is doing its part to keep movies people want to go out and see in theaters, thanks to this and “Jackass: The Last Hurrah.”
“Infinite Storm,” a Naomi Watts true-life tale of survival in a blizzard, bombed. A good movie that only sold about $750k in tickets, according to Exhibitor Relations.
The much-hyped/much-loved horror film “X” ($2.2 million) and the anime “Jujutsu Kaisen 0.” ($4.5) both fell off cliffs on their second weekends.
“X” under-performed for a horror title. Too smart?
Anime is typically a one-weekend blockbuster, and this one rightfully has zero appeal to non-devotees. But that big open and a decent weekday numbers put “Kaisen” at $27.7, and it’ll clear $30 early next week. Crunchyroll, its North American distributor, is cracking open the sake right now.
“The Outfit” is making a fast exit, a solid thriller that only took in just over $560k this weekend.
Oh, and that little Warner Brothers blockbuster “The Batman?” It’s over $330 million in North America alone, thanks to another $20 million and change this weekend.
