So, who came out on top??

Russell Brand of course!

The actor/comedian is king at the box office, taking in the top two films this weekend.

Who woulda thunk it??

His animated movie Hop continued its winning streak, being the number one film for the second week in a row, bringing in $21.7 million.

His live action film, the Arthur remake, was in second place and pulled in $12.6 million despite the fact that the film had been absolutely shredded by the critics.

Cate Blanchett's Hanna, starring Saoirse Ronan, came in third place with $12.3 million. The film has been receiving positive reviews and has managed to gain a huge audience through word of mouth.

Rounding out the top five were Soul Surfer, co-starring Carrie Underwood, with $11.1 million, and the horror movie Insidious, earning $9.7 million.

So, readers, what did U see this weekend??

    I have absolutely 0% interest in seeing that many in any movie at the theater.



  2. 2

    That "Arthur" remake looks like the most dreadful shit ever. Russell Brand is just plain gross.



  3. 3

    Perez, you'll be seeing and hearing a lot more about Saoirse Ronan. Someone truly talented who doesn't need to pay you to grab headlines like say Selena Gomez.

    Future Hollywood Legend!

    On a $40 million budget Arthur completely tanked. In order to make back the budget and marketing costs the movie would have to make double that. Unless the foreign gross is significant it's a bargain bin movie that made bargain bin money.

    Hey perez, why don't you comment on how your faves James Franco and Natalie Portman's movie completely tanked at the box office, Your Highness it's called. Natalie Hershlag I mean.

    Everybody watch Hanna, best movie this year.

    Re: Moviebuf – She's the next Natalie Portman for sure.

    Re: jones19 – Nah, she's already better than her. Look at her range, Portman has yet to demonstrate she can hold an accent. Ronan hasn't even done a movie with her own accent. Physically she's also more dominant than Portman has ever been on screen. And Ronan does her own stunts.
