"Divergent" Dominates Box Office with $56 Million, "Muppets" Sequel Flops

Posted: March 23rd, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Divergent" Dominates Box Office with $56 Million, "Muppets" Sequel FlopsSubmit Comment
Summit Entertainment's "Divergent" hit theaters this weekend, taking first place at the box office, but not reaching the heights of "Twilight" or "The Hunger Games," which opened to $70 million and $153 million, respectively.

The new movie grossed $56 million domestically and launched a new franchise for the studio, which is already working on the next two installments. "Divergent" cost $85 million to make, which means that it's on its way to becoming a financial hit. Unfortunately, the film has a lousy 40% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.

Taking the second place is Disney's "The Muppets" sequel, called "Muppets: Most Wanted," which opened to $16.5 million, which is lower than expected and far lower than the $41 million that the first film grossed during its 2011 opening weekend.

"Muppets: Most Wanted" cost $54 million to make and will likely become profitable once foreign box office is calculated. It has a 77% fresh rating.

Check out the rest of the box office results

People chose puppets over muppets. How droll.

How ironic really. At least the Muppets weren't hiding from what they are. LOL

Didn't see any of the Twilight films. Didn't see either two Hunger Games films. Don't plan on breaking the trend.

^^No they aren't, and at least they can act without a hand up their ass.

We talking about the actors of Divergent or the Muppets for having a hand up their ass. Can't tell the difference anymore. LOL

@Sleuth: I dunno. I always think of puppets as a sock with someone's hand up it, and a muppet as something controlled by strings, and the former reminds me of the cast of Divergent.

Interesting. Well either way it is clear this is all set up. Woodley and Stewart and Lawrence, all stars of franchises, are all friends apparently. This is just a big club of the next elite snobbish actors...except they actually had talent before now. LOL

A cleansing occurs next Friday when Sabotage with Ahnuld comes out. I hope it wins the weekend and not Noah.

Divergent looks stupid as f*ck. As does the muppet movie. Grand Budapist hotel looks pretty decent tho

I have a bad feeling sabotage will bomb.it would probably be a hit if mark wahlberg was the lead.no 20 year old is gonna watch an Arnold movie

@bando

I'm rooting for Sabotage to do well because it's cool to see Arnie with such a big ensemble cast and also because David Ayer is a good writer/director.

Divergent ? I thought they said "Detergent" .... who would want to watch a movie about bland white people who could wash clothes and drag in the youth of America ?
