Rio's Birds Of A Feather Fare Better Than Scre4m At The Box-Office

Guess the box-office belongs to the kiddies this weekend!

The Friday numbers are in and so far, the family flick Rio is in the lead with an impressive $10.2 million take from the box-office yesterday. If the 3D toon keeps this up, they could end up with a strong $37 million for the weekend.

Coming in at the #2 spot, slashing an estimated $8 million out of movie-goers, was Scre4m. The flick is getting decent reviews, but based on its performance yesterday, it is projected to take in $20 million for the weekend. That's well below what Dimension Films had projected, but still, not a bad start.

C'mon people! You can do better than this! Would it help if we told you we know the ending and it will undoubtedly BLOW YOUR MIND??? Trust us, go see this movie! It's scary! It's funny! It's written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven - 'nough said!

    I guess the Perezhilton method of flodding a site with ads (and 'who cares clips') wasn't such a good idea on Dimension's part. Oh well, lesson learned. You can promote crap till your blue in the face, but at the end of the day - it's still crap. I am optomistic about today's youth when they skip garbage like this.

    the ending did not "blow my mind" it was terrible! obviously you never really liked the first 3 because if you are older than a teenager, then this movie does not appeal to you! obviously not made for the fans of the original! one of the biggest disappointments!

    Re: 7tizz – If you are so opposed to "garbage" like this, than why are you ALWAYS commenting FIRST on EVERY single SCRE4M Post?!?! Get a life, and comment on things you actually like!

    i just saw scream 4 today, and the ending was totally unexpected!

    Re: #Cejers – I haven't even clicked most Scream 4 posts so I don't know where you're getting this info from. I think I posted half way down one of em pointing out that Mario is obviously getting some sort of kickback from the studio.

    It might help if it didn't cost $14 to see a movie these days…

    Didn't Scream4 have ads on this site for the past week? I feel like he should've said he had a vested interest in this movie performing well. If companies realize that posting ads on this site don't translate to box office gold then Perez Loses advertising money.

    The Scream trilogy are honestly one of my favourite films. I watch them quite often and was very excited to see Scream 4. I saw it last night and I can say that it was genuinely very good. There were a lot of hat-tipping to the originals for us die hard fans and the people who I went with (also hardcore scream fans) also loved it. I beleive it was better than 2 & 3 and there's not one thing that I would have changed. I am very impressed and I'm looking forward to seeing it again. At the end of the day if you don't like it you don't like it, but I loved it.

    I LOVED Scream 4 and was beyond impressed with Emma Roberts performance - that girl is going to be a huge star.
    The reason films like Rio pull in more at the box office and do it quicker is because its not a movie you go to because you want to see it - its a movie you go to because your KIDS want to see it and you all go as a group. it becomes a family outing - Rio will get the ticket money of 3 kids and parents in a lot of cases where Scream will get people going by themselves or with one friend.
    This means that Rio will do well at first but Scream will probably have generated higher revenue by the time the run at the cinema ends.

    Re: glamourextra – You're a moron!

    Mario, you think EVERY THING is amazing and a "must see" these days. Didn't you say the same thing about Craven's last FLOP? Scream 4 is for idiots and I TOTALLY agree w/7tizz' comment. I watched the Scream 2 on TBS last night and forgotten how DREADFUL it really was. The first was different and smart but they WORE it into the ground. Scream 4 will fall quickly….



  12. 12

    Re: Chasenip – Don't bash a film before you've even watched it. That makes YOU the moron, not glamourextra.



  13. 13

    Re: Chasenip – SCREAM 4 was actually VERY good! And he's right when he says the ending will blow your mind. It really was unexpected. The beginning of the movie will surely blow your mind. This was better than 2 & 3 admittedly. I don't know if u saw all the Scream movies, but if you did, I would say watch them again and see 4. You probably would like it!



  14. 14

    Re: Chasenip – go fuck yourself. HA!



  15. 15

    It turned out to be so epic. I went in with high expectations as a Scream enthusiast, and was still blown away.



  16. 16

    Looks like advertising on your site was a waste of money.



  17. 17

    think its one of those movies that fans of previous movies (like the scream franchise) will like, and others will be indifferent.
    58% approval on rottentomatoes.com, which is ok.
    think those who predicted "legs" for the movie may not be correct as the big fans tend to turn out early, and if numbers are below expectations on the first weekend, not a good sign for future success. guessing there will be no '5".

    Re: ashley4225 – thank you. I saw this movie cause I had free passes and I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!

    i dont see the movie that gory.



  20. 20

    Re: 7tizz – Teens won't see this movie cause as the message said in Scream 4 "People are famous nowadays because they have fked up lives." The teens are too busy watching Jersey Shore, watching various other forms of trash TV, and killing kittens to make GaGa inspired costumes to bother seeing a movie which makes fun of them.



  21. 21

    Scream 1 had an opening weekend of around 6.5 million then word of mouth skyrocketed it. Scream 4 will do just fine.

    I'd say if your a fan of the original movies, then you will like this one. the one thing you have to remember about the scream movies is that they are satires at heart,essentially making fun of horror movies. the cliches in scream were original horror movies. scream 2 cliches were all about horror sequels, and scream 3 was all about trilogy cliches. Scream 4 plays out all the cliches of modern day horror remakes, which we all know suck! like Sidney said, "Dont Fuck With the Original!" for the people that say they dont like this movie, they are not looking at the movie with the "Satire" perspective in mind! Scream 4 was actually the first movie i have seen in a theatre in almost 3 years! (im a young parent and watch everything online since i cant ever find time to get to the theatre.) i would gladly pay to see this film again! liek i said, if your a fan of the first 3, you will like this one. and the motive for the killings was very unique and applied to todays society perfectly! go see this movie!!!



  23. 23

    Scream 4 sucked! Lame, predictable and silly as hell. People were laughing at it, but not at the intended comedy.



  24. 24

    @stevehouse.. the scream movies are satires, yet they cling slavishly to the cliches they lampoon. Are they self hating or are they self aware? That's my question.



  25. 25

    Re: Chasenip – You are the idiot. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean that everyone who likes it is an idiot. You are just a closed minded moron who thinks your shit doesn't stink…fyi it does.



  26. 26

    Well, it's official; Scream 4 is a BOMB! All that lead-up, all that hype and the STILL couldn't make HALF of a shit movie like Rio. Wow. Looks like people are going to save their money and not advertise or cross promote with Perez Hilton dot bomb. Ah well, that's what happens when you turn your website into a gay promo machine and you have everyone ghost write for you and you forget to have them all in a meeting to know where you stand on things LOL. Seriously, you can't have one writer say one thing and the next writer immediately contradict you in the post below.
