    Box office numbers for the weekend of March 1-3....

    Director Bryan Singer's first directorial effort since Superman Returns I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) was the first tent pole release of the year for Warner Brothers. Jack the Giant Slayer opened to pretty disappointing numbers considering the incredible cost to make it. At a production budget of $195 million and at close to a reported $300 million when marketing and advertising costs are included, Jack the Giant Slayer only managed $28 million. A report on Friday at The Hollywood Reporter about the movie says that WB hopes foreign box office will make up for the loss it will take here in states. Fantasy type films usually do well overseas. Bryan Singer is said to have been unhappy with WB about the release date of March. It was supposed to be out last summer but was delayed. With the delay decided WB decided to take a gamble on the March spot in hopes that it might pay off in some way. It looks like it did not. Also too, with a PG rating it was hoped that it might encourage more families to come and see it. With some pretty good competition coming up in the next fourl weeks, it looks like this isn't going to finish very well here. Up next for Bryan Singer is his return to Fox to direct the already hyped X-Men: Days of Future Past for a next summer release.

    In second place was Identity Thief with $9.7 million and a $107.4 million total.

    Opening in third place was 21 and Over with $9 million.

    Opening as well and in fourth place was The Last Exorcism Part II with $8 million.

    And rounding out the top 5 is Snitch with $7.7 million and a $24.4 million total.

    Out of the top 12 are Argo (13th), Side Effects (14th), Zero Dark Thirty (16th), and Beautiful Creatures (19th).

    Opening next weekend are two new movies. First up is Disney's Oz: The Great and Powerful (rated PG) starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff, Joey King, and Bruce Campbell.

    The other new movie of the weekend is Dead Man Down (rated R) with Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Dominic Cooper, Terrence Howard, and Isabelle Huppert.

    Here are your numbers....

    Yeah, maaaaaybe that should have come out later if they spent so much on it. We've been conditioned to believe that a summer-time movie released in the winter months must have something wrong with it.

    Ouch. I guess Jack The Giant Slayer is this year John Carter. Btw $300 million for marketing and advertising? That weird because I don't remember seeing any ads for this on TV. I seen the trailers in entertaiments shows but never an tv ad.

    Box office numbers for the weekend 3/17/13....

    For the second weekend in a row Oz The Great and Powerful was the number one movie falling 46.5 % for a $42.2 million second weekend. It's total now is up to $145 million with an additional foreign take of $136.8 million.

    Not doing well in it's debut was The Incredible Wonderstone taking third place with only $10.3 million. The budget however for this wasn't as high as one would think considering the star power. Warner Brothers only spent about $30 million to make it not counting marketing and advertising.

    Dropping to fourth place was Jack the Giant Slayer with $6.2 million and a $53.9 million.

    And rounding out the top 5 is Identity Thief with $4.5 million and a $123.7 million total.

    Out of the top 12 is Life of Pi (13th), A Good Day to Die Hard (14th) which leaves with $65.4 million on a $90 million production budget.

    Opening next weekend are four new movies. First up is Olympus Has Fallen (rated R) starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo, and Rick Yune.

    Next is the animated film The Croods (rated PG) starring the voices of Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman.

    Sigh, Olympus looked mega-stupid. Why didn't it get $12 million like everything else that's been released this year up to this point?

    The Big Wedding just looks awful. It's the type of movie that you couldn't pay me to see.

    Those numbers aren't great for Oblivion at least domestically. Cruise still seems huge overseas though.

    Looks like all the Twilight fans were not interested in seeing The Host.

    Lower on the box office charts, From Up on Poppy Hill now has made $722,426 in the US. It's now GKids' most successful theatrical release! Hoping it can pass the million mark.

    I find it odd no one has posted in this thread since Iron Man 3 debuted. There is some new box office data today. Is Star Trek Into Darkness a flop? Reading the latest updates from Deadline Hollywood and Variety, it sounds like the new Star Trek is not doing as well as Paramount would have liked. I thought this movie would have performed better than what the newest box office updates are saying the weekend numbers will be for opening weekend.
