Box Office Prime
Some big movie news today...
The kids seemed to really enjoy the new Rock'em Sock'em Robots flick:
Michael Bay's robot actioner should hit $181M through the Fourth of July. Combined with the domestic result, TF3 becomes Hollywood's third highest grossing worldwide debut ever with $416M global cume for its first 7 days.
I haven't seen it yet...but plan to check it out in 3-D sometime soon.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides crossed $1 billion in global box office Saturday and is now the 8th film in history to reach the $1B threshold.
I haven't seen that yet either...seems I might be the only one.
Universal's "Bridesmaids" is expected to pass "Sex and the City" today to become the highest-grossing R-rated female comedy ever. With $152.9 million through Sunday, "Bridesmaids" is also producer Judd Apatow's most successful movie.
That I did see and really loved. Happy that it's doing so well.
Maybe the Bridesmaids sequel should add a couple robots and a pirate...
It could be HUGE!
