Mark Wahlberg's "Contraband" Wins Box Office Weekend

Posted: January 15th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Mark WahlbergSubmit Comment
Mark Wahlberg's "Contraband" action-thriller easily won at the domestic box office over the Martin Luther King Jr weekend. The film grossed $24 million and will likely end up at $28 million for the four-day weekend. "Contraband" has a 45% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes, but cost only $25 million to make.

Disney's 3D re-release of "Beauty and the Beast" took second place by grossing another $18.5 million, which became the best January opening for an animated film. "Hoodwinked!" was the previous record-holder with $16.9 million. "Beauty" will likely end up at around $24 million for the four-day weekend, which is still less than the $30 million "The Lion King" earned when it was re-released in 3D last year.

The other wide release of the weekend, "Joyful Noise," starring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton. It landed in fourth place with $11.3 million and has a 35% fresh rating.

I only have two movies with walhberg.big hit cause of Lou diamond.planet of the apes cause of Tim Roth.

Hope wahlberg the minority bully hires immigrants so they can masturbate and urinate on his Wahlbergers so the whole town of Boston can O.D on c*m and piss.

This movie was okay, could have been way better if it had more action. Marky mark can be good when he wants to like in the departed but I can see why a lot of people don't like him tho

Looks like a solid action movie, looking forward to seeing this.

Bandolero just hates him because Wahlberg f*cked his mum and based his dad.

Missed the War House this weekend but ended up watching The Darkest Hour.

Was ok, not too much story but lots of running, jumping and hiding a kind of Omega Man (I am Legend) meets War Of The Worlds.

Absolutely no need to be in 3D

6.5/10
