"The American" Beats "Machete" at Box Office

Posted: September 6th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The American" Beats "Machete" at Box OfficeSubmit Comment
George Clooney's "The American" took first place at the domestic box office this weekend with slightly under $13 million. The film opened on Wednesday and has grossed a total of $16.1 million.

"Takers" was pushed down to second place with $11.5 million, but once again had the highest per-theater average of any wide release. The $32 million films has grossed $38 million in two weeks, sparking talks of a sequel.

Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" opened this weekend as well, but had to settle for third place with $11.3 million. The $20 million film will easily make its money back and will likely end up as a trilogy.

"The Last Exorcism" continued to bring in the money with another $7.6 million this weekend for a total of $32.4 million, which was good enough for fourth spot. The film cost only $1.8 million to make.

Finally, the other wide release of the weekend, "Going the Distance" romantic comedy, ended up in sixth place with $6.9 million, which is below expectations.

James Cameron says The American isn't good and that everything he made was so much better, and that The American should have been in 3D, but even if it were in 3D it wouldn't have been as good as any of his 3D and that he's a giant tard who thinks Avatar is the greatest movie ever made, and he doesn't like other movies because they're not Avatar and that he masturbates to Avatar on a daily basis and other movies are non-masturbate-to-able because they're not Avatar.

I bet The American had no mexicans in it, but Machete had plenty of whites(ie Lindsey Lohan and Steven segal) but still couldn't make the cut(no pun intended)

@ johnny_boy: Leave the cutting to Lindsay Lohan. I hope she'll strike a vital artery one of these days.

they should have thrown 1 or 2 gay vampires to each of these movies and then the box office results would have been much higher,,,,

Anyone else see that scene in machete in the hospital best use of a large intestine I've ever seen. The chick with the cell phone in the vagina was HOT.

Saw The American this weekend. Was bored out of my f*cking skull.Easily one of the worst Clooney films I've ever scene. Not a single original thought in the entire movie. If you want to see Clooney in an international action thriller, skip this POS and just rent The Peacemaker. That film kicks ass, this one should have never been made.

They want to see arthouse, rather than tits, ass, blood and bad jokes.

Wow. Just when you thought you knew rednecks.

The reason the American beat Machete ?

Because the busboys have to clean the plates, while your stuffin' your face and watchin' George Clooney.

f*ck Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" movie. I liked the tits and action but the movie just got me so f*cking mad it was not worth the $5 I paid to see it. if that rich liberal *sshole hates the US so much and loves Mexico so much more than here then give us back all the American dollars you earned smudging our nations reputation and move back to that sh*t hole. http://www.prisonplanet.com/‘machete’-producers-lied-about-racist-bloodbath.html Personally I am boycotting his future movies unless he apologizes for the crap he put in there about the US and anyone else who disagrees with he retarded pro illegal immigration philosophy!

"The chick with the cell phone in the vagina was HOT."

I agree with you on that, despite some very cool scenes I want to enjoy an action movie without having to think rather than watch propaganda by liberal Rodriguez using the movie's characters to character assassinate anyone with a differing political opinion, Apparently that dumb-sh*t thinks its all right to let illegals in unchecked. Last time I checked the 72 illegal immigrants were massacred by Mexican drug gangs and not by the border patrol minute men. And the reason they were all killed? IThey were all shot because they refused to work as drug curriers to the Zeta's Mexican Drug gang. There is a reason why we want to control legal immigration, so you don't have this crap, it’s unsafe for the impoverished Mexicans and it undermines our security if they are blackmailed once across to use them as a clandestine support network to smuggle narcotics and god knows what else over the border.

But that is too complex a thought for a Hollywood know-nothing nitwit who chooses to paint everything with a black and white paintbrush.
