While it didn't upset the Dr. Seuss film, Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns
had the strongest opening (25m) of the new films this weekend. While all of Tyler Perry's previous films have surprised box office analysts with their strong turnout, they also didn't have to topple an elephant. Overall, a strong showing for the film, but it unfortunately breaks his steak of opening at number one at the box office.
This weekend also dropped another remake of an Asian horror film on us. Shutter
took in a mediocre 10.7m this weekend. While Easter weekend has never proven a strong weekend for horror films, Shutter's
low gross combined with its abysmal reviews have essentially ruled out any chance of salvation the film may have had.
And after years of comedic genius, it appears that the mediocre performance of Drillbit Taylor
has finally put a dent in Judd Apatow's near flawless record. Granted his role was that of producer and not director, it will be his name that the film is remembered for. As a fan of Apatow, I can only hope this is an isolated incident.
