Best Man Holiday Nearly Crushes Thor In The Box Office
With a history of action packed blockbuster’s movies, Marvel has seen nothing less then box offices success with majority of their movies since dropping their first film in the late 90’s. Now with Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street being pushed backed to a Christmas Day release, box-office analysts expected a easy win for the second Thor movie in its second weekend of release. Guess they didn’t count in the Malcolm D. Lee sequel. Sporting a budget of just $17 million and kind of marketed specifically to African-American women, the 15 year long-awaited second release nearly crushed Thor in the box office it’s opening weekend grossing a nice $30.6 million. Twice as much as many analysts projected!
According to USA Today:
Other films with predominantly black casts have been hot sellers at the turnstiles this year. Fruitvale Station, the $900,000 real-life drama about a black Bay Area man shot to death by transit officers, has done $16 million. And Lee Daniels’ The Butler, the $30 million true story of a black White House butler, was the box-office surprise of summer at $115 million.
Final figures from this weekends screening are expected Monday. Congratulations to the cast and crew of The Best Man Holiday on a amazing come back!!!!
