Critical bomb is audience favorite: ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’

June 29 update: “If you build, they will come.” That’s a classic line from a near-classic movie about corn cobs and ball playing and father-son relationships. A little paraphrasing – if you build big bad bots, add lots of explosions and idiotized dialogue – would result in a perfect description of the current leader at the domestic (U.S. and Canada) box office: Michael Bay’s critically lambasted Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

As found at Box Office Mojo, over the course of five days – since its Wednesday opening – the Transformers sequel debuted with an impressive $200.1 million from 4,234 locations, of which $108.9 million on the June 26–28 proper. Its $62 million first-day gross is reportedly the highest ever for a Wednesday.

That once again proves that moviegoers want quality fare, no matter what know-nothing film critics have to say. Starring in this sure-to-become 2050s cult classic are Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, and Josh Duhamel.

As per various sources, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen had a $200 million production budget, not including marketing and distribution expenses. These could easily add another $100 million to the cost of Bay’s flick.

Sandra Bullock-Ryan Reynolds romcom no. 2 + disappointing ‘My Sister’s Keeper’

Directed by Peyton Reed, Yes Man stars Carrey as Carl, a bitter man who decides to change his life by saying Yes to anything and everything for a whole year.

Also in the Yes Man cast: Zooey Deschanel and Bradley Cooper.

At no. 6, Sony Pictures’ drama Seven Pounds took in $10 million for a cumulative gross of $60 million. Directed by Gabriele Muccino and starring Will Smith – who had previously collaborated on the highly successful The Pursuit of Happyness – the movie follows an IRS agent who embarks on a quest to drastically change the lives of seven strangers.

Weekend box office: ‘Marley & Me’ beats Adam Sandler

Following at no. 4 with $21.5 million was the Bryan Singer-Tom Cruise collaboration Valkyrie, which brought its cumulative gross to $30 million.

‘Yes Man’ stronger than expected while ‘The Spirit’ fails to rise

Still going surprisingly strong at no. 5 was Jim Carrey’s comedy Yes Man, reaching a total haul of $49.5 million following this weekend’s earnings of $16.4 million.

The only wide release not to reach the Top Five this weekend was Frank Miller’s The Spirit, which collected a disappointing $6.5 million at 2,509 locations. Based on the comic book series by Will Eisner, the film stars Gabriel Macht as a rookie cop battling crime in Central City.

Weekend box office: Audiences say No to Jim Carrey’s ‘Yes Man’

Dec. 21 update: Jim Carrey’s latest comedy, Yes Man, topped the North American box office this weekend, Dec. 19–21, with $18.1 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates. For a mainstream Jim Carrey comedy, Yes Man delivered an unusually low-key performance in the U.S. and Canada.

Equally disappointing was Seven Pounds, which, unlike Will Smith’s recent films, failed to score a big opening, scoring only $16 million at no. 2. Not doing any better, another new entry, The Tale of Despereaux, collected $10.5 million in third place.

Meanwhile, last weekend’s box office champion, the Keanu Reeves sci-fier The Day the Earth Stood Still, dropped to no. 4, earning $10.1 million and lifting its domestic total to $48.6 million.

The Day the Earth Stood Still 2008 Keanu Reeves. Panned sci-fi remake box officeThe Day the Earth Stood Still 2008 with Keanu Reeves. U.S. critics have mostly derided Scott Derrickson’s remake of the 1951 Robert Wise sci-fi classic, but North American audiences did – at least on the film’s first weekend out – embrace it. After grossing $31 million on its debut, The Day the Earth Stood Still 2008 might have eventually reached the $100 million mark domestically – except for the fact that on weekend no. 2 it was down nearly 70 percent. Barring a box office miracle, that particular domestic milestone now lies beyond reach. In the 1951 original, Michael Rennie had Reeves’ role – the alien who makes the mistake of attempting to warn humankind of its likely destruction.

Weekend box office: Destroyed by critics, ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ destroys competition

Dec. 14 update: 20th Century Fox’s The Day the Earth Stood Still remake destroyed its competition at the North American box office, with $31 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates.

Scott Derrickson’s critically panned remake of the 1951 sci-fi thriller directed by Robert Wise opened at 3,560 locations, landing at the no. 1 spot early Friday.

Last weekend’s box office champion, Four Christmases, dropped to second place, earning $13.2 million, for a domestic total of $87.9 million after a strong three-week run.

Four Christmases Reese Witherspoon Vince Vaughn: Actress back atop box office chartFour Christmases with Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn. Following a trio of post-Walk the Line box office disappointments – Rendition, Penelope, Just Like Heaven – Reese Witherspoon returns to the top of the North American box office chart with Four Christmases. In fact, when it comes to Witherspoon’s personal box office chart, Seth Gordon’s holiday comedy’s $31.06 million opening-weekend gross trails only that of Andy Tennant’s Sweet Home Alabama, which collected $35.64 million back in September 2002.

Weekend box office: ‘Four Christmases’ once again tops box office as trio of new releases bomb

Dec. 8 update: Four Christmases topped the U.S. and Canada box office for the second consecutive weekend, with $18.1 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates.

The holiday comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn easily dominated the competition, lifting its domestic total to $70.8 million.

This week’s new releases weren’t that lucky, with Lexi Alexander’s Punisher: War Zone, with Ray Stevenson, delivering the least dismal result at no. 8 with $4 million.

Cadillac Records, starring Adrien Brody and Jeffrey Wright, closely followed in ninth place with a paltry $3.5 million.

Weekend box office: Reese Witherspoon-Vince Vaughn comedy ‘Four Christmases’ tops as ‘Australia’ disappoints

Dec. 1: Seth Gordon’s holiday comedy Four Christmases topped the North American box office this Thanksgiving weekend with $31.6 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates.

Starring Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon as a couple paying a Christmas Day visit to all four of their divorced parents, the film reached $46.7 million after only five days in release.

Jumping to no. 2, Bolt collected another $26.5 million, while the Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson vampire romance Twilight brought in $26.3 million.

Dropping to fourth place was Marc Forster’s 007 adventure Quantum of Solace, which pulled in $19.5 million.

Debuting at a lowly no. 5 was Baz Luhrmann’s Australia, which earned $14.8 million from 2,642 locations. The epic adventure romance stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman.
