Box Office – Prince Caspian Almost Flops19.05.08 # Box Office # 4 Comments
Prince Caspian usurped the box office crown from Iron Man this weekend. But even though it toppled the iron giant with a $56m total, the $200m fantasy epic earnt $15m less than projected. The problem is, once you pass The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, how many Narnia books can anyone name? With a stronger overseas performance likely, as happened first time round, expect the series to continue anyway.
No other films were given wide release this weekend which is pretty odd, even during a summer season when blockbusters are normally well spaced out. It may have something to do with Indy starting midnight Wednesday. Still it leaves us just a little bit more time to look back again at Speed Racer‘s colossal crash last week and shake our collective heads.
Iron Man’s stockpile continues to grow – The movie has now amassed $225m, which means it will shortly overtake X Men 3 and move into the top 50 highest grossing films of all time.
