BOX OFFICE: KICK-ASS 2 May Reach Only #3 At The North American Box Office This Weekend
Oprah Winfrey may have made all the difference at the North American box office this weekend as The Butler looks set to way overperform after taking the #1 spot yesterday. That means Kick-Ass 2 could drop as low as third place this weekend thanks to the success of We're the Millers. Read on for details!
Analysts have been predicting a close race between The Butler and Kick-Ass 2 all week, but in a surprise twist, the R-Rated adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s comic book series may finish its opening weekend in third place. With an estimated $24 million three day total and an 'A' CinemaScore, The Butler earned $8.3 million yesterday, whereas Kick-Ass 2 took only $5.8 million for a $15+ million weekend. That could ultimately mean that it finishes in third place as We're the Millers looks set to have another solid weekend despite taking a mauling from critics. With a B+ CinemaScore from moviegoers, Kick-Ass 2 has also not been met particularly well from those in the industry with a Rotten Tomatoes score of only 28%. Either way, this is not a good start for the sequel and could put the chances of the third instalment being adapted in jeopardy. However, like the first movie, good international numbers and DVD sales could make all the difference.
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.
