"Fifty Shades of Grey" Shatters Numerous Box Office Records

"Fifty Shades of Grey" Shatters Numerous Box Office RecordsSubmit Comment
Matthew Vaughn's "Kingsman: The Secret Service" could not compete with "Fifty Shades of Grey" at the box office, but performed very well in second place, grossing $36 million domestically and another $44 million internationally for a worldwide debut of $80 million. The film cost $81 million to make and has a 71% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.

All eyes were on "Fifty Shades of Grey," which cost just $40 million to make and ended up with a whopping $240 million global debut ($82 million domestically). The film only has a 26% fresh rating, but shattered numerous records, including...

* Biggest Presidents Day weekend debut (Previous record holder was "Valentine's Day" with $56.3 Million)

* Biggest debut by a female director ("The Matrix Reloaded" had a bigger debut, but Lana Wachowski was still a man)

* Highest number of theaters for an R-rated opening with 3,646 locations (Previous record holder was "The Hangover Part II" with 3,615)

* Biggest single-day February gross with $36.7 million on Saturday (Previous record holder was "Passion of the Christ" with $33.1 million)

* Second biggest February debut (Record holder is "The Passion of the Christ" with $83.9 million)

* Fourth biggest R-rated opening (Behind "The Matrix Reloaded" with $91.8 million, "The Hangover Part II" with $85.9 million and "The Passion of the Christ" with $83.9 million)

* Universal Pictures' second biggest international box Office debut with $158 million (Record holder is "Fast and Furious 6"″ with $160.3 million)

* Biggest R-rated opening internationally (Previous record holder was "The Matrix Revolutions" with $117 million)

Because women are whores and Americans aren't too bright.

Pretty sure most of those who paid to see Fifty Sades were people who were, and still are, fascinated with Hollywood's soft-core porn experiment.

In other words, a fad.

tried to watch another 2 lame academy award nominated movies - 'The Theory of everything' and 'The imitation game'.

snooze-fest galore. so far 'Whiplash' was the only justified movie to be nominated and of course it won't win since 'Faghood' is so american and gay.

Only a matter of time before this Twilight fan fiction rides the horny mom wave created by Magic Mike into 2 sequels and countless copy cats.

At least Kingsman did well, that movie was fun as hell

@PORN-FLY
That list is really sad actually. Maybe two or three of those movies were even any good. Women need to start having some respect for THEMSELVES before they ask us to.

Watched The Summit recently, kinda boring and poorly done doc*mentary, but the story is worth a wiki read. K2 is a bitch :O

Also watched Clue last night. 6.5/10
Only really cared for the butler

@Tanman
I liked Clue! Really funny, but I wished the ending where Miss Peac*ck was the killer was the definite ending. LOL The one where they all did it was a little predictable.

I kinda think this phrase summarizes moderm society.

"Because women are whores and Americans aren't too bright"

Translation to man-speak: "My d*ck is like a secret room under the Great Sphinx of Giza - it must be there, but no one will ever see it".

Or suck it. It's that kind of room.

With velvet ceilings.
