BOX OFFICE: Jeff Wadlow's KICK-ASS 2 Earns $1.3 Million At Late Thursday Screenings
Jeff Wadlow is now hard at work on X-Force, but following its UK opening on Wednesday, his big screen adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s Kick-Ass 2 was released in North America yesterday evening. Hit the jump for details on that and predictions for the weekend.
The Wrap is reporting that Jeff Waldow's Kick-Ass 2 grossed $1.3 million in late shows yesterday, a fairly solid start for the R-Rated movie which was shown on 2,055 screens compared to Jobs' 2,200 (the Steve Job biopic starring Ashton Kutcher grossed only $425,000). In April 2010, the Matthew Vaughn helmed Kick-Ass opened with $19 million, and analysts are currently predicting a similar $20 million debut for the sequel. However, it's unclear at this point whether it will manage to take the #1 spot over the weekend as it faces stiff competition from The Weinstein Company's Lee Daniels' The Butler. What do you guys plan on checking out this weekend? Sound off below!
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.
