Weekend Box Office: It's Megamind That Matters

View Chris Kavan's Profile

It appears that audiences have been having an animated withdraw, as Megamind was the top draw this weekend.

With an estimated $47.7, Megamind had a strong debut, though predictions had it pegged somewhere in the $55 - $60 million range, so it also may have been a slight letdown. Despite the smaller opening, Megamind was on par with an earlier hit, How to Train Your Dragon and if it can hold on should finish quite nicely.

In a strong second-place showing was the R-rated Due Date with Robert Downey, Jr. and Zack Galifinakis with $33.5 million. Despite getting a critical drubbing, the film still had great numbers and is Downey, Jr.'s biggest opening after the Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes films.

In third was Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls at $20.1 million and has some of the best audience reactions despite getting mixed reviews from critics. It remains to be seen if this translates to any hope of Oscar gold in the future.

Dropping only 17.4% from last week, the action ensemble Red held up well to take fourth place with $8.8 million and is just under $72 million total and could end up near the $90 - $100 million mark when all is said and done. On the other end of the spectrum, horror film Saw 3D fell a whopping 63.8% to land in fifth with $8.2 million and now stands at $38.8 million.

Two films that saw strong openings in limited release were 127 Hours and Fair Game averaging $66,000 and $15,217 per screen - good numbers for opening on 4 and 46 screens respectively.

Next weeks big draws look to be the sci-fi thriller Skyline, the runaway train in Unstoppable and witty banter of Morning Glory.
