Weekend Box Office: ”The Croods” Opens at #1

#1: The Croods

DreamWork’s animated flick about a family of cavemen (and women) made an impressive $44.7 million dollars this weekend. “The Croods” topped Dreamwork’s previous film, “Rise of the Guardians”, which made $23.8 million in it’s opening weekend, but didn’t quite reach “Madagascar 3″ which made $60.3 million. This was just one of the many highly anticipated animated features due out in 2013. Others include “Monsters University”, “Despicable Me 2″, and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2″.





#2: Olympus Has FallenOlympus Has Fallen Poster

Millenium Films’ Die Hard-esque action film, “Olympus Has Fallen“, impressed at the box office, bringing in $30.5 million dollars. This is about $7 million more than “A Good Day to Die Hard” earned in it’s opening weekend. “Olympus” also earned more than “The Last Stand”, “Parker”, “Bullet to the Head”, and “Snitch” combined. This is only the third time that a movie starring Gerard Butler has made more than $30 million dollars in it’s opening weekend. The other two movies were “How to Train Your Dragon” and “300″.

Sam Raimi’s prequel to the 1939 classic managed to rake in another $22 million dollars in it’s third week of release, for a total of $117,559,000. While it may not earn as much as Sam Raimi’s 2002 adaptation of “Spider-Man”, it is certainly an impressive number. James Franco, who plays the title character of Oz, had a good weekend with “Oz” earning $22 million, and “Spring Breakers”, which made $5,000,000.
