BOX OFFICE: JACK THE GIANT SLAYER Grosses $400K In Midnight Showings
With Bryan Singer's (X-Men) 3D fantasy epic expected to gross a soft $30M domestically this weekend, Jack The Giant Slayer has officially taken in $400,000 from midnight showings.
It was previously reported that Warner Bros.' Jack The Giant Slayer 3D would only gross $30 million in its box office debut this weekend, a low number for a film that the studio spent nearly $300M on. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Bryan Singer-directed fantasy epic (which stars Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor and Stanley Tucci) has grossed $400,000 from Thursday night/midnight showings. This is behind the $500,000 number that Disney's John Carter grossed last March, and that film only debuted with $30M. Jack needs to perform very well overseas, considering that a soft domestic run is very likely. Insiders at WB say that the midnight numbers are good, since kids weren't available to see it. The film was originally slated for a June 2012 release before being delayed "to make it more kid-friendly". Do you plan on checking out Jack The Giant Slayer this weekend?
