Mark Wahlberg's Lone Survivor DESTROYS The Competition With A Huge Opening Weekend!

lone survivor still doodle

We're guessing Marky Mark is feeling those good vibrations right about now because that dude is on top of the movie-making world!

The gritty new war film he stars in, Lone Survivor, just enjoyed a $38.5 million dollar opening weekend and easily dominated its box office competition!

Not only did Peter Berg's critically acclaimed flick oust Disney's Frozen from the top spot, but it straight-up OBLITERATED two other big name films that also opened this weekend.

In fact, it nearly TRIPLED the combined total grosses of Joaquin Phoenix's Her ($5.4 mil) and Julia Roberts' August: Osage County ($7.3 mil)!!

Man Of Steel Estimated To Fly As High As $100 Million This Weekend!

man of steel flying

Is Superman strong enough to break through the $100,000,000 barrier?

Some analysts think so! Estimates have Man Of Steel making as much as $105 million this weekend, which would put it just under the top 20 opening weekends of all time!

With a good head start of $21 million on Thursday late night screenings alone, the film has a shot, but Warner Bros. is trying not to get their hopes up. They're expecting the reboot to hit around $85 mil.

We think they may be underestimating the super-powered appeal of Henry Cavill! In the pantheon of pecs to put on Clark Kent's specs, we think he rates pretty darn high! Up in the sky high!

It's a bird! It's a plane! Nope, it's a chiseled jaw and an 8-pack of abs!

Yeah, we're going to say a $100 million without breaking a sweat! But if he does, that's OK too! LOLz!

Fast & Furious 6 CRASHES At The TOP Of The Box Office While No One Is Interested In A Third Hangover!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

We guess movie goers are FINALLY hungover when it comes to The Hangover franchise!

While the third and final installment of the comedic trilogy made a solid $42.4 million in its opening weekend, it was NO MATCH for the latest Fast & Furious sequel, Fast & Furious 6, which DOMINATED with an insane $98.5 million!

And that's not all it's expected to make, given that Memorial Day is tomorrow!

In fact, if it does as well as it's estimated to do - around $122 million - then it will become the FOURTH-HIGHEST opening for the holiday EVER!

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. president of distribution Dan Fellman, responsible for The Hangover Part III, admits:

"It was a little surprising that we didn't reach the $80 million mark, but I can't look at a $63 million or $64 million opening and say it wasn't solid. Obviously, the first choice was Fast 6, but hopefully people will get a dose of that film and then come back to us."

Guess we'll have to see and find out!

Did anyone really expect otherwise this weekend?!

WE sure didn't!

And while it didn't quite come close enough to break the $207.5 million record that The Avengers achieved this time last year, the super-hero threequel can now be considered the SECOND biggest opening weekend of all time!

Ah-MAY-zing! Maybe that Gwyneth Paltrow spin-off isn't so terrible an idea, after all!
