Box Office Results · February 05, 2012
The big battle of the weekend was not fought down in Indianapolis, but at the Box Office, where a group of super-powered teenagers took on the legendary boy wizard.
‘Chronicle’, the found-footage thriller about a group of teenage boys who develop supernatural abilities ultimately took the win with $22M, giving this low-budget flick the fourth-highest Super Bowl debut.
Daniel Radcliffe and his first post-Potter picture did very nicely as well. ‘The Woman In Black’, his spooky supernatural horror film, conjured up $21M over the weekend. Though, story has it that most of the ticket sales came from teenage girls swooning over the grown-up Hogwart’s student. Nonetheless, this is the first time ever that two movies have grossed more than $20M on Super Bowl weekend.
Drew Barrymore and her trapped family of whales grabbed the fourth position. ‘Big Miracle’ pulled in $8.5M for a modest opening. Though ‘A Dolphin’s Tale’, the other recent “awww, poor aquatic mammal” movie had a better opening… proving that people prefer dolphins.
Sorry Drew. Maybe you should have at least put the word ‘whale’ in the movie title.
Here is the estimated breakdown of the weekend totals:
|TW||LW||Movie Title||Weekend Gross||Total Gross||Week|
|2||–||The Woman in Black||$21,000,000||$21,000,000||1|
|6||3||One For the Money||$5,250,000||$19,668,000||2|
|9||5||Man on a Ledge||$4,500,000||$14,700,000||2|
|10||6||Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close||$3,925,000||$26,793,000||7|
