THOR smashes competition making $66 million at weekend box office!

After a display of sheer and utter dominance during the last weekend in April, FAST 5’s reign at the top comes to an end. It suffered a minor drop in this week’s Box Office standings but by only one spot. The first place chair has become a throne fit for a king, or a god. Marvel’s THOR did what it was supposed to and claimed the top prize for itself. It earned itself a nice amount of walking around cash with $66,000,000.

FAST 5 made $32,519,000 to bring its overall one week total to $139,852,000. This total declares it as the number one grossing film thus far in 2011. It’s already made a decent profit seeing how it cost $125,000,000 to make.

The next new release along with THOR, JUMPING THE BROOM, made $13,700,000 which was good enough for third. Another new release, SOMETHING BORROWED, got $13,155,000 for its troubles and landed in fourth. We can’t forget about the ongoing fight that the family-oriented animated films have been putting up. Despite being out four weeks now, RIO, still manages to edge itself into the top five with $8,200,000.

In high school, Sean wanted to punch the subject of English right in its face. By far his best class, he hated doing research and writing papers. Ten + years later, he is an aspiring writer. It would seem that career goal of leading the New York Knicks to an NBA championship didn’t quite pan out. He started writing film reviews just over a year ago and became a movie buff even further back than that. He’s dabbled in fiction, poetry and random articles filled with nothingness on his way to hopefully one day becoming a published author. Hopes high, right now he’s over there sitting in the corner with his fingers crossed. Visit his blog - http://emergeblogger.blogspot.com
