Immortals took the weekend, opening with an impressive $33.2 million dollars. Immortals is Relativity Media’s highest opener yet since becoming a distributor. Even though it’s a success for the studio it’s still kind of a disappointment for the genre. 300 opened with $70.9 million and Clash of the Titans opened with $61.1 million.
Coming in at number two was Adam Sandler‘s downright awful Jack and Jill. I cannot believe people actually paid good money to see this thing. At least it opened lower than Just Go With It, but come on guys, we don’t need to be supporting pure garbage!
Dipping down to number three is Puss in Boots. The animated film brought in $24.7 million this past weekend, bringing its domestic total to $108 million.
Tower Heist hung on to the number four spot despite the recent news with Eddie Murphy and Brett Ratner not being involved with the Oscars.
Clint Eastwood‘s latest sleeper, J. Edgar opened up kind of weak at number five with $11.2 million. That’s off from his previous effort Hereafter, which opened with $12 million last October.
The rest of the top ten films took their normal drops. A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas fell 55 percent, which makes it a stronger hold than the previous entry.
Who’s ready for Twilight to shake things up this week?
