We were lucky enough to catch a screening of this a few days ago, and let us tell you: It is amazing AND highlarious!!
Never have we seen an all female lead cast hit such a comedic home run, with character depth and shock humor balanced flawlessly! Kristin Wiig's journey is one that should not be missed!
Having said that, we're excited to hear that the opening weekend is on track for a $21.5 million dollar opening!
Regardless of the fact that it will most likely land at #2 for the weekend behind the almighty Thor, this is a hug success for the gals! We definitely hope that word of mouth and reviews will carry the strong support and momentum into the coming weeks: it deserves it.
Here's some inneresting info on it:
"Heading into the weekend, most box office observers thought Bridesmaids would be a solid player, and gross between $15 million and $17 million. (Baby Mama, rated PG-13, opened to $17.5 million). Its over-performance signals it is working as a counter-programming move.
Females made up roughly 65% of the audience–while a full 77% were over the age of 25 as younger moviegoers continued to stay away from the multiplex. Overall, the audience gave Bridesmaids a B+ CinemaScore.
Bridesmaids cost roughly $32 million to produce, with Relativity Media chipping in some of the financing."
Fab work, everyone involved!
This movie was seriously so refreshing to see, we're really proud of the cast and crew for having the courage to go as far as they did with every aspect of it, and of course we have to give a shout-out to Chris O'Dowd for being ABSOLUTELY ADORBS!
Everyone should check it out!
