"Hotel Transylvania" and "Looper" Dominate Box Office Weekend

Posted: September 30th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Hotel Transylvania" and "Looper" Dominate Box Office WeekendSubmit Comment
"Hotel Transylvania," a new animated film voiced by Adam Sandler, took first place at the domestic box office this weekend by grossing $43 million. That's the biggest opening for any animated Sony movie, topping the previous record-holder "The Smurfs" ($35.6 million).

It grossed another $8.1 million from 13 foreign markets, for a worldwide debut of $51.1 million. Since it has a budget of only $85 million, "Hotel Transylvania" is on its way to become a hit.

Sony's other release, the sci-fi film "Looper," starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, ended up in second place with $21.2 million. Costing only $30 million to make, it too will go on to become a hit.

The combination of "Hotel Transylvania" and "Looper" gave Sony enough of a boost to make it the top-performing studio domestically with $1.285 billion, surpassing Warner Bros.

Meanwhile, "Won't Back Down," which has been stirring up debate about schools in America, landed in a disappointing tenth place. The new movie, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis, was only able to gross $2.7 million, which wasn't even enough to beat Universal Picture's musical comedy "Pitch Perfect," which opened in only 335 theaters and landed in sixth place with $5.2 million.

The Horror films of today can only dream about having the Atmosphere, Style and Class of this movie, A real suprise

I'm surprised that even an animated film that involves Adam Sandler is suddenly profitable. I mean I watched "That's My Boy" and man, that was absolutely appalling! It's so bad it makes "Jack & Jill" a real comedy. Even his acting is so dreadfull that I fear I've lost some brain cells just by watching him.

What I really don't understand is how come this guy is still being paid in millions for the most stupid films which isn't even funny on paper and yet still put on films!? The Jewish producers should file for bankruptcy aftert this. Seriously.
