Movie Business Still Golden

Box Office Guru details another strong weekend, in a year that is handily beating the record year that was 2009:

The Red Queen ruled once again as Disney's Alice in Wonderland remained at number one for the third consecutive frame beating out another pack of new releases. Fox's tween comedy Diary of a Wimpy Kid beat expectations to open in second place while Sony's Jennifer Aniston-Gerard Butler vehicle The Bounty Hunter enjoyed a solid debut of its own close behind in third. But Universal's new action entry Repo Men flopped in fourth with a miserable showing. The overall box office was up over 2009 for the fourth straight weekend.
YTD box office results are now a whopping 33% higher than just 4 years ago.

  1. I wonder when the props will be given to:
    -Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill) who made it fun again to go to the movies
    -Lord of the Rings trilogy; yes people will watch a 3 hour movie if it rocks!

    Best newer films:
    -Road to Perdition
    -Assasination of Jesse James
    -There Will Be Blood


    Worth noting that the average ticket price has continued to edge up even in these low inflation times.
