Box Office Barometer 2-14-11
Awful. Just awful. Adam Sandler proved he has more loyal fans than Justin, beating him at the box office without the aid of Justin’s 3D ticket prices. His movie Just Go With It is about Adam Sandler making jokes, Jennifer Aniston complaining, and Brooklyn Decker giving people a reason to see this movie. But, hell. You can’t blame Sandler for cashing in when he only needs to show up for his movie to succeed.
Never Say Never’s 2nd-place finish proves that Justin has fewer fans at his peak than Miley Cyrus at hers: she garnered $31 million in her movie’s debut. So does this mean that he is not as popular as Miley? Or is his appeal starting to wane (puberty is not working well for him)?
Gnomeo and Juliet marched into 3rd with its Romeo & Juliet/Toy Story story. It’s about racist gnomes, but none as cool as Gimli.
The other newcomer, Eagle, couldn’t best The Roommate and it’s star(less)-studded cast. Whatever. Screw you, this time of the year!
