"Wall-E" and "Wanted" Set Records This Weekend

Posted: June 29th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Wall-E" and "Wanted" Set Records This WeekendSubmit Comment
Pixar's "Wall-E" and Angelina Jolie action flick "Wanted" both had a great opening weekend at the box office. "Wall-E" easily took first place in grossing an estimated $62.5 million from 3,992 theaters. The R-rated "Wanted" rocketed past expectations in grossing an estimated $51.1 million from 3,175. Each made the record books.

"Wall-E" nabbed the third best opening for a Pixar film after "The Incredibles" ($70.5 million) and "Finding Nemo" ($70.2 million). It is the second best June opening of all time after "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" ($94.7 million).

At $23.1 million, "Wall-E" scored the biggest opening-day gross of all nine Pixar films, reflecting the fact that kids are finally out of school.

"Wanted" scored the best opening ever for an R-rated film released in June and the 6th best opening of all time for any R-rated pic. Film, also starring James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman, placed No. 2 for the weekend and played equally well among various ethnic groups.

Coming in No. 3 for the week was "Get Smart," which enjoyed a good hold in its second weekend. Comedy declined 48% to an estimated $20 million from 3,915 theaters for a new total of $77.3 million.

I knew Wanted would do well, but not too well.

Pixar is unbelievable. The budget of the film is $180 million... They bring in a third opening weekend and will no doubt, break $200 million.

I'm not sure Wanted will get a sequel now. Especially since they are struggling putting together Sin City 2 with Jolie.

We're getting another Toy Story and another Cars, but where is the Incredibles sequel. The original has the biggest opening for the studio.
