Looks like The Green Hornet has set a strong precedent for Ry Ry's Green Lantern to
surpass live up to!
Audiences loved Seth Rogen this weekend, and his superhero movie took the #1 spot at the box office!
Here's what Sony's president of worldwide distribution Rory Bruer had to say about the film's success:
"As we moved down the road, it got a lot of love, the love that it deserved. I think everything worked really well for the film: the timing, the release date, the marketing, and, most importantly, the film itself. It all gelled in a terrific way. We're very pleased with the results."
The Ron Howard-directed comedy The Dilemma debuted at #2, bringing in only $17.4 million. Guess all the drama surrounding the movie's trailer didn't help its cause.
Other top box office spots were dominated by films with Oscar buzz, including True Grit at #3, The King's Speech at #4, and Black Swan at #5
and Little Fockers at #6.
Should be inneresting to see if The Green Hornet can sting again next weekend, when the Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher rom-com No Strings Attached is released.
