Really, people? We prefer Ryan Reynolds in tight green spandex to Jim Carrey and adorable penguins???
…Okay, we suppose we see your point! LOLz.
After bringing in an impressive $3.35 mil from midnight showings last week, Green Lantern was expected to make around $55 mil over its opening weekend, and it def came close!
Ryan's superhero flick brought in $52.7 mil over the weekend, which was good enough to land a #1 spot at the Box Office, but still not TOO impressive given the movie's $200 million budget.
Also, it didn't fare too well against other recent superhero movies' opening weekends, including X-Men: First Class which opened at $56 mil, and Thor, which opened with an impressive $66 mil.
As far as the other top spots for this weekend are concerned, Super 8 landed the #2 position with another $21.4 mil, while Mr. Popper's Penguins got 3rd place with $18.45 mil.
X-Men ended up in fourth place, earning another $11.9 mil, and we'd like to give a special shout-out to Bridesmaids, which earned another $7.1 mil this weekend, bringing its gross to an impressive $136.4 mil so far!
What movies did U see this weekend? Did U go for superheroes, penguins, aliens, or funny ladies???
