Weekend B.O. March 21-23 (Everything As Expected)

Shadow and Act By Sergio | Shadow and Act March 23, 2014 at 12:11PM

As expected, 'Divergent' was No.1 this weekend. But with terrible reviews and tough competition coming in the next few weeks, how will it hold up?

Divergent

Though it got universally awful reviews, Divergent, the latest attempt to cash in on the huge young adult book genre, such as Twilight and The Hunger Games, and with several more to come this year, was, as expected, No. 1 this weekend, with $56 million. That’s slightly below the $65 million that most box office analysts were predicting; but who’s complaining?

The question is, how will Divergent stand up next weekend against Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, which has been getting its share of controversy, and which has already been released in some foreign countries, such as Mexico, grossing some $4 million overseas to date. Then the week after that, Divergent will face Captain America: The Winter Solder, which is already getting rave reviews - even from those who are not fans of comic books movies.

Already there are predictions that Winter Solider could blast all the competition, with an $85 million opening weekend. We’ll have to wait and see how that pans out.

The Muppets Most Wanted, which had its work cut out for it, going up against Divergent, came in a disappointing second, with $16 million; and Mr. Peabody and Sherman coming in third with $11.7 million.

Tyler Perry's The Single Moms Club dropped over 60% from last weekend's fifth place, down to tenth this weekend. With just under $13 million so far, it's going to be a struggle for the film to hit $20 million.
