After winning two weeks in a row Black Swan has finally found its match in I Am Number Four. The Disney distributed movie needs all the success it can get after some rather disappointing numbers in North America, more on this and other titles after the break.
So I Am Number Four was not 4th but instead 1st but it did that with only $17.8 million, only $0.3 million more then Black Swan, nothing to write home about. So far I Am Number Four has banked $21.9 million outside North America for a worldwide total of $61.2 million. This flick needs to make at least twice as much for anyone to even consider a sequel.
Black Swan was close to a 3rd win in a row, but not close enough with $17.5 million for $124.2 million as we speak and $228.1 million worldwide. And to think Darren Aronofsky used to have trouble finding people to finance his movies, I bet those days are long gone now
The King’s Speech was strong again, $14.9 million and $154.3 million outside of North America. Worldwide total is now $270.1 million and this is bound to hit the $300 million mark in less then 2 weeks, probably will stop around $350 million, enough to become the 15th highest grossing film of 2010 worldwide, amazing performance.
Continuing the combo of Oscar nominated flicks for Best Picture, True Grit was 4th after getting a decent bump that pushed it to $13.3 million (compared to $10.1 million a week before) thanks to good 2nd place opening in France ($4.3 million). True Grit stands now at $47.1 million for a total of $214.4 million worldwide.
Gnomeo and Juliet was up this week all the way to 5th place with $9.3 million, $36.7 million so far and $112.3 million worldwide. Just Go With It continues to expand all the way to 6th with $9.3 million ($25 million) while No Strings Attached was down a bit, $9.1 million for $34.2 million and it just passed the $100 million mark worldwide. I can’t remember the last time Natalie Portman had such a good box office streak, Your Highness is up next.
Yogi Bear, Tangled and Rien a Declarer finish the top 10 with $8.3 million ($91.2 million), $7.9 million ($343 million) and $7.7 million ($69.8 million, $60.1 million of that in France alone)
