Green Lantern Makes The Most Green This Weekend! Lands #1 Spot At The Box Office!

| Filed under: Film FlickersJim CarreyRyan ReynoldsBusiness Blitz

green lantern number one at box office

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???

    I was dragged to both movies this weekend and was majorly surprised. The Green Lantern was very good and entertaining. The whole audience loved it. I saw Mr. Popper's Penguins with the little ones and they squealed and laughed throughout the movie. It is a kid's movie and for an adult it is cute and entertaining but all the kids in the theatre loved loved loved it.

    My favorite line from the last South Park episode is when Stan is at the movies with his friends and the preview of Mr. Popper's Penguins comes on: "JIm Carry returns to the screen with a bunch of dancing little sh!ts, and you're all going to see it because F*CK YOU!!!!!!" LOL. I don't even like South Park and I laughed at this one.

    GL was not as terrible as many critics have implied. It could have been so much better if it had a cohesive storyline and a more imaginative director, And whoever designed the planet Oa, should be banned from ever working on any movie, ever again. This movie was chock-full of some of the ugliest CGI I have ever seen. Note: it wasn't the quality of the CGI, it was what the artists chose to render. Who fault was that? Seriously, we need to blame someone.

    Ryan Reynolds is NOT a good Green Lantern… and the story sucked.

    It's a shame. GL is a cool hero.

    Sorry have not been to the movies in two weeks and will not go until they get some decent movies out there (and yes, I did like Bridesmaids and also Midnight in Paris). Even going to a matinee and with a senior discount, it is not worth my money now for a mediocre movie. And I used to go to the movies once a week, often twice, but have to be more careful with my income these days and make it go further.
