Sean Kelly

Box Office Thoughts for the Weekend of July 4, 2008

Despite its poor reviews, Hancock ended up on top during the Forth of July weekend. Here are the numbers:

  1. Hancock - $66M
  2. WALL·E - $33.4M
  3. Wanted - $20.6M
  4. Get Smart - $11.1M
  5. Kung Fu Panda - $7.5M
  6. The Incredible Hulk - $4.98M
  7. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - $3.94M
  8. Kit Kittredge: An American Girl - $3.6M
  9. Sex and the City - $2.35M
  10. You Don't Mess with the Zohan - $2M
Will Smith's movies are usually successful and the $66M made by Hancock is a decent number, despite the fact that it is about $10M less than what I Am Legend opened with last December. It's also down from the $70.5M Transformers made last year.

Last week's top film Wall-E dropped down to number two with a gross of $33.4M, bringing its two-week total to $128M.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull added $3.94M bring its total gross to $307M. However, that gross is still second to Iron Man, which even though it is now out of the top 10, it now has a total gross of $312M.

And that's the box office thoughts for this week.
