Box Office Results · March 18, 2012

For reasons that completely elude us, EVERYONE seems to love Channing Tatum! It’s only March and here is his second big Box Office win of the year! And he has two more movies scheduled for release in June! But, let’s give Jonah Hill some credit too! He is fresh off an Oscar nomination and is all BFF with Brangelina now!

So, it’s really no surprise that the comedy pairing of “Unstoppable Channing Tatum” and “Skinny Jonah Hill” proved to be a winning combination. ‘21 Jump Street’ easily leapt past ‘Dr. Suess’ The Lorax’ to grab the top spot at the Box Office with $35M.

Will Ferrell’s Spanish-language movie ‘Casa de Mi Padre’ opened in just under 400 theatres over the weekend yet still managed to pull in $2.2M for a debut in the 9th position. People sure do love that guy too!!

Here is the estimated breakdown of the weekend totals:

TW LW Movie Title Weekend Gross Total Gross Week
1 21 Jump Street $35,000,000 $35,000,000 1
2 1 Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax $22,800,000 $158,400,000 3
3 2 John Carter $13,515,000 $53,172,000 2

  1. Wouldn’t be surprised if 21 Jump Street turned into a franchise with these results (second best non-summer R-rated comedy debut ever). Good stuff for Hill who’d been struggling a bit at the box office, and it can only mean good things for the other couple of releases Tatum has lined up this year (the second G.I. Joe flick and Soderbergh’s Magic Mike). Really looking forward to actually watching the flick myself.

  2. I think “Casa de mi Padre” might be really funny.
