Box Office Results · March 11, 2012

Well, after the dust settled ‘The Lorax’ is still your Box Office champion. That orange little environmentalist totally defeated ‘John Carter’ and has also gone on to become the most profitable movie so far of 2012! Earning almost $122 million in only 10 days! At least it’s no longer ‘The Vow’.

Disney’s wildly expensive ‘John Carter’ pulled in just a little over what experts were predicting, but still had a disappointing opening. The sci-fi flick debuted in the number two spot with just over $30.6M. It’s sad that the movie based on books that influenced so many sci-fi classics (Star Wars, Avatar) just ended up looking like a rip-off of those earlier films.

Eddie Murphy continues to be box office poison with his recent flick earning only $6.4M and a spot just out of the Top Five. Apparently ‘A Thousand Words’ is so unspeakably bad it has joined the few movies with the rare 0% rating on RottenTomatoes.com.

Not to be outdone on the ole “crap-o-meter”, the horror movie ‘Silent House’ managed to accomplish the rare  “F” CinemaScore rating! Making it the second found-footage horror movie to gain that honour this year; the first being ‘The Devil Inside’. ‘Silent House’ also scared up $7.0M and a debut in the fourth spot.

Here is the estimated breakdown of the weekend totals:

TW LW Movie Title Weekend Gross Total Gross Week
1 1 Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax $39,100,000 $121,950,000 2
2 John Carter $30,603,000 $30,603,000 1
3 2 Project X $11,550,000 $40,125,000 2

  1. Bahaha. Eddie Murphy should move out of Hollywood before he gets kicked out.
