Nicolas Cage's "Knowing" Top Box Office

Posted: March 22nd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Nicolas CageSubmit Comment
The Nicolas Cage starrer "Knowing" easily topped the weekend box office chart in debuting to an estimated $25 million, while the comedy "I Love You, Man" and Julia Roberts' topliner "Duplicity" came in on the lower end of expectations.

"I Love You, Man," starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segal, grossed an estimated $18 million from 2,711 theaters to place No. 2. Box observers predicted it would do closer to $20 million.

"Duplicity," pairing Roberts with Clive Owen, grossed an estimated $14.4 million from 2,574 theaters. Overseas, the film grossed $4.2 million as it opened in 11 territories for a worldwide opening haul of $18.6.

Most thought "Duplicity" would come in higher domestically, based on Roberts' name. Film could have hampered by the fact that it appealed mostly to older women; 78% of the audience were over the age of 30.

"Knowing" marks Cage's sixth best opening. Summit Entertainment says the successful pic's bow was another sizeable victory for the indie studio, which is home to the "Twilight" franchise.

What the hell! The worst reviewed of those three was number 1? Wow, I saw "I Love You, Man" and thought it was great. John Favreau and Jamie Pressely's characters were hilarious!

and yeah i agree with you synthetic, "knowing" just looks like a rip off of "next" except with crazy visual effects lol

i'll be honest, I had absolutely no desire to see knowing ever. But then my best bud told me he was dragged to it by his girlfriend, told me about the ending, and now I really wanna see it just because it is so out there.

watchmen will only continue to drop until they release the dvd...i'm sorry...but it's the truth....you just can't ask fans to watch your movie...not after they've seen it already...besides...if it weren't for this website...i probably wouldn't have ever heard anything about that
