Listen up- movie studio execs- families can’t afford babysitters these days & that’s why ‘Toy Story 3’ & ‘Grown Ups’ are big winners this weekend!
Here we are again. Another weekend at the summer box office and another victory for a children’s film as Toy Story 3 remained atop the leader board, bringing in a very healthy $58.9 million according to our sister site Deadline Hollywood. Coming in second with $41 million was the Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock flick Grown Ups, a film where someone pees in a pool and the water turns blue we all learned from the ads shown everywhere for the past few weeks. And they say they don’t make intelligent films anymore!
Meanwhile, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz‘s Knight and Day ended up not being the box office bomb many thought it might be with a low, but over expectations, $20.5 million. Now that it’s released however we will miss Tom’s senseless viral videos, one-on-one time with the dudes from Twilight, and lighting up the stage with Puerto Rican dancers.
Rounding out the top 5 were 80s remakes The Karate Kid with $15.4 million and A-Team with $6.1 million.
It will be interesting to see how these films fare next weekend at the box office. Are there any new releases?
