The Croods

No surprise, The Croods took the number one slot this week, which is good news for DreamWorks, which hasn’t had much box office success with their animated films lately, such as their disappointing Rise of the Guardians.

Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen did much better than expected, with $30 million. How this will affect the other “Die Hard in the White House” movie, White House Down, with Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum, which comes out in three months, we will have to wait and see.

However the new comedy release, Admission, with Paul Rudd and Tina Fey, tanked. And, can I say that Fey is, to me, one of the most over-rated entertainers ever. ”She’s incredible! She’s smart! She’s a woman! And she wears glasses!” Like what’s the big deal with her? I can’t be the only one who feels the same way. 

O.K. her Sarah Palin impersonation is funny, but what else am I missing here? I guess the b.o. result for her film shows that not everyone is so in love with her.

Halle Berry's The Call took a dip, but held on to fourth place, and, at this stage, looks like it's headed for a solid $45-50 million box office total, which is a solid return on the film's very modest $13 million production budget.

1) The Croods Fox $44,700,000
2) Olympus Has Fallen FD $30,500,000
3) Oz The Great and Powerful BV $22,031,000 Total: $177,559,000 
4) The Call TriS $8,700,000 Total: $30,904,000
5) Admission Focus $6,446,000
6) Spring Breakers A24 $5,000,000 Total: $5,407,000 
7) The Incredible Burt Wonderstone WB $4,275,000   Total: $17,365,000
8) Jack the Giant Slayer WB (NL) $2,965,000 Total: $59,052,000
9) Identity Thief Uni. $2,545,000 Total: $127,727,000
10) Snitch LG/S $1,930,000 Total: $40,343,000
11) Silver Linings Playbook Wein. $1,620,000 Total: $127,199,000
12) Safe Haven Rela. $1,152,000 Total: $68,932,000
