The Green Hornet Stings The Competition At The Box Office

green hornet is number 1 at box office

Looks like The Green Hornet has set a strong precedent for Ry Ry's Green Lantern to surpass live up to!

Audiences loved Seth Rogen this weekend, and his superhero movie took the #1 spot at the box office!

Here's what Sony's president of worldwide distribution Rory Bruer had to say about the film's success:

"As we moved down the road, it got a lot of love, the love that it deserved. I think everything worked really well for the film: the timing, the release date, the marketing, and, most importantly, the film itself. It all gelled in a terrific way. We're very pleased with the results."

The Ron Howard-directed comedy The Dilemma debuted at #2, bringing in only $17.4 million. Guess all the drama surrounding the movie's trailer didn't help its cause.

Other top box office spots were dominated by films with Oscar buzz, including True Grit at #3, The King's Speech at #4, and Black Swan at #5 and Little Fockers at #6.

Should be inneresting to see if The Green Hornet can sting again next weekend, when the Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher rom-com No Strings Attached is released.

  2. 2

    no, perez, it wasnt the "drama surrounding the trailer," it was the fact that vince vaughn movies dont usually do so hot

    I heard this movie sucked azz.

    I think the controversy helped The Dilemma if anything. Truth is that the trailer looked boring and that's why it didn't do so good.

  5. 5

    The Green Hornet really just wasn't that good of a movie either. :\

  6. 6

    Really his trailer is why it only made 17 million. You are such a rope sucker it's not even funny. He has only made about 20 blockbusters in his time. I'm sure the g.a.y word is why. Idiot

    this movie got good reviews from my friends who have watched it, also attracted a lot of asians due to the appearance of Chinese superstar jay chou :)

  9. 9

    I don't think the Dilemma did poorly because of the word gay I think it did poorly because it looked terrible

    the movie was fine, cheap humor. but the asian totally made it worth my 10 bucks, he stole the show completely. cameron diaz was just there for some star power. its not terrible like movie snobs make it out to be, idk i liked it

    Boring movie. Seth Rogen is an okay actor, but does he have to be Seth Rogen in every single role? Zero range. Any notions about this movie becoming a franchise is now dead and buried. Note to studios: If you want a superhero franchise, shell out the money for a good screenplay and cast quality actors.

    Re: love_hollywood – Jay Chou is TAIWANESE, not CHINESE.
