Though it dropped more than was hoped this weekend, Jumping The Broom is still doing well, and on track to be one of the most profitable films this year, when its production cost is compared to its eventual final box office take. Though Insidious , which is No.12 this weekend, will still hold that title, making over $50 million so far, on just under $1 million in production cost.

Though it dropped more than was hoped this weekend, Jumping The Broom is still doing well, and on track to be one of the most profitable films this year, when its production cost is compared to its eventual final box office take. Though Insidious , which is No.12 this weekend, will still hold that title, making over $50 million so far, on just under $1 million in production cost.

The very funny Bridesmaids co-starring Maya Rudolph (how many of you know that she's the daughter of Minnie Ripperton?), came in No.2, with the potential to be the real sleeper of the summer film season; and other films such as Fast Five and Thor are holding on strong.
