"Iron Man" Beats "Speed Racer" This Weekend

Posted: May 11th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Iron Man" Beats "Speed Racer" This WeekendSubmit Comment
"Speed Racer" appeared in theaters this weekend and even though it was one of Warner Bros' big summer releases, the movie only brought in $20 million. "Speed" came just barely ahead of "What Happens in Vegas." The Modestly budgeted comedy opened a bit ahead of expectations, grossing $20 million at 3,215 theaters for a per play average of $6,221.

Marvel's "Iron Man" kept soaring on its second week, dropping just 49% to $50.5 million. Relatively strong dropoff after a huge $100 million bow puts the superhero pic at a domestic total of $177.1 million. Average this weekend was $12,284 at 4,111 locations.

"Speed Racer" got just $5,605 on average from its 3,606 theaters. Final gross was well below already soft industry estimates for what Warners had hoped would be a summer blockbuster. Pic ended up playing primarily to families with young kids.

Photo finish between it and "Vegas" means the industry will have to wait for final numbers on Monday to see which ended up in No. 2.

Sony Pictures Classics took David Mamet's actioner "Redbelt" wide to 1,379 screens on its second weekend and managed only $1.1 million, or $827 per location.

In limited release, "Son of Rambow" expanded from five to 36 theaters and grossed $137,971, a modest $3,833 per screen. Total is $210,974. Paramount Vantage plans to expand the pic to between 75 and 90 locations on Friday.

ThinkFilm expanded romantic comedy "Then She Found Me" from 72 to 153 theaters for Mother's Day and grossed $489,072, or $3,197 per screen. Total on the Helen Hunt starrer is $912,086.Click here to read our "Speed Racer" review.

the washowski's and the studio miscalculated biiiig time...first by making the movie way too long (shorter movies make a larger gross)...second, by releasing the movie way too early in the season (kids are still in school)...third, by definitely not testing in audience prescreenings...it may end up making money on the foreign market, but its a bomb domestically, and the washowkis will never get free reign again....and good i say...they effed up V...they should burn in hell for that alone
