‘Pacific Rim’ falters on its North American opening

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 cost of yasmin birth control order yasmin pill online yasmin birth control price walmart
