Weekend B.O. March 1-3 (Fe Fi HO HUM Weekend)


Jack The Giant Killer was No. 1 in this weekend’s very

lackluster box office results. Even more

painful, since, before Jack came out, it was obvious that it was going to be a very

expensive loser which had already gotten some pretty tepid advance word of mouth.

With production costs of $200 million, the film’s opening

take, aside from being underwhelming, and even with future overseas box office, it’s

going to be pretty impossible for the film just to break even.

Aside from that, some are questioning why Warners would release the film, originally

scheduled as a summer release, just a week

before Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful, directed by Spider Man movies director

Sam Raimi, comes out, and which will, no doubt, be No. 1 next weekend.

Oh well, the why and wherefores of studios’ film

releasing strategies are never clever cut and are baffling most of the time.

Not to cry for Jack director Bryan Singer since he’s got

the next X- Men film about to start. And it couldn’t come sooner.

Meanwhile Django Unchained is now past $400 million in

total worldwide box office gross.
