SATURDAY 10:33 PM: I am still on medical leave. So this will be an abbreviated box office with Friday, Saturday, weekend and cume numbers. It’s another -30% dismally down weekend compared to last year’s — around $120M overall. If Universal’s overpaid slackers can’t be bothered to make a big deal about Hop overperforming this weekend thanks to the one filmmaker, Illumination Entertainment’s Chris Meledandri, whose Despicable Me singlehandedly rescued 2010 for that bomb factory, then why should I? Director Duncan Jones’ thriller Source Code for Summit shows once again that Jake Gyllenhaal can’t open a movie to $20M which is what bonafide movie stars are supposed to do. But at least this isn’t a complete disaster like his recent pics. Meanwhile, FilmDistrict’s horrorific Insidious was produced for only $1 million and also earned millions in international pre-sales. By Friday afternoon, the film had already made back its negative cost many times over, so the rest is pure profit. While many are trying to mimic this low-budget/wide release model, the Paranormal Activity team of Oren Peli and Jason Blum keep doing it with smart marketing.
