"Mall Cop" Beats "Underworld" This Weekend

Posted: January 25th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Mall Cop" Beats "Underworld" This WeekendSubmit Comment
Holdover comedy "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" took first place again at the weekend box office in a narrow upset over new entry "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans." The news would have been good either way for Sony, since the studio is distributing both.

"Mall Cop" continued to overperform in its second week, declining 32% to an estimated $21.5 million from 3,144 theaters. The total is $64.8 million in its first 10 days.

"Rise of the Lycans" opened to a solid $20.7 million from 2,942 theaters, well behind the $26.9 million opening of previous franchise installment "Underworld: Evolution." The original "Underworld" debuted to $21.8 million.

Warner Bros wasn't so fortunate with the debut of family adventure "Inkheart." The new movie came in No. 7 for the weekend, grossing an estimated $7.7 million from 2,655 locations.

Overall, domestic box office revenues once again outpaced the same weekend last year. Year-to-date ticket sales are up more than 13% over the same time period in 2008.

Elsewhere at the box office, Warners re-released "The Dark Knight" over the weekend after picking up eight Oscar nominations, including supporting actor for Heath Ledger. Tentpole reopened in 350 locations, including 143 IMAX runs, grossing roughly $670,000 for a new domestic total of $531.7 million. The film is still about $3 million away from breaking the $1 billion mark in worldwide ticket sales.

You didn't even mention Slumdog Millionaire which is in its 11th week and in the top 5 for the first time. Nobody cares about Underworld or Mall Cop.

Two equally sh*tty films dominate the box office. It must be January.

^lol. Too damned true. I can't believe Mall Cop ever made it into theaters. I thought films like this usually go straight to VHS.

everyone thinks they're a film critic, you want my advice? sit back, relax, and enjoy whatever you're watching.

Everyone thinks they're a film critic? No, not really. If I forced you to eat horse manure, and you screamed "this is sh*t!", would that make youa food critic? Or would you say, "oh, I'll just sit back and enjoy whatever I'm eating"? I think not.
