While it didn't run away with a killing, 21
did reasonably well this weekend at the box office, taking first with an estimated 23m in sales. The only ones taking a gamble this weekend are those willing enough to walk into the theater.
The spoof Superhero Movie
didn't quite capture the same numbers seen in, well, other superhero movies. The genre send-up even failed to upset Horton's near tyrannical run at the box office, hopefully sending the message that we tired of these superficial spoofs.
Meanwhile, the military drama Stop-Loss
came in with 4.5m. The small theater count combined with the warm reviews will likely mean a brighter future with regards to box office numbers for the film.
Unfortunately, the Simon Pegg comedy Run Fat Boy Run
seems to have fallen short with a mere 2.3m in sales. Hopefully this isn't a sign of what's next for the actor's future.
