‘Pacific Rim’ falters on its North American opening

July 15th, 2013 - Graham Eley

1. Despicable Me 2 (Universal) UPI $44.8m ($229.2m) (1)
2. Grown Ups 2 (Sony) SPRI $42.5m (NE)
3. Pacific Rim (Warner Bros) WBPI $38.3m (NE)
4. The Heat (Fox) Fox Int’l $14m ($112.4m) (3)
5. The Lone Ranger (Buena Vista) WDSMPI $11.1m ($71.1m) (2)


Guillermo del Toro’s space adventure, ‘Pacific Rim’, became another victim of the summer’s overcrowded tentpole market, grossing a lukewarm $38.3m on its North American debut.  It was broadly in line with market expectations after analysts had already scaled down predictions during the build up to the film’s release.  Not even a first night ‘A-’ CinemaScore could generate enough interest outside the core ‘fanboy’ audience and the del Toro faithful.


‘Despicable Me 2′ remained top of pile, after grossing a further $44.8m during its second weekend in play.  The Universal/Illumination Entertainment collaboration now stands at an excellent $229.2m domestically.


The weekend’s other wide release, ‘Grown Ups 2’, fell away slightly after leading the pack on Friday with a $16.5m debut.  The Adam Sandler comedy, nevertheless, still finished the three days on a strong $42.5m to take second place.


The overall box office remains in good shape, with the top twelve films grossing 35% more than the corresponding session last year.yasmin antibabypille online kaufen yasmine galenorn reading ordercost of yasmin birth control price of yasminorder yasmin pill online yasmin birth control generic nameyasmin birth control price walmart
