Friday Box Office: BAD GRANDPA Rises Above GRAVITY; THE COUNSELOR Underwhelms

by     Posted 363 days ago

jackass-presents-bad-grandpa-sliceAfter leading the box office for three consecutive frames, Gravity will slip to second this weekend. No surprise, the movie that is taking the deep-space drama down is Bad Grandpa – the latest feature in the successful Jackass franchise. According to Paramount estimates, Bad Grandpa earned $12.6 million on Friday, including $1.4 million from Thursday night and midnight previews. That puts the R-rated release on track for about $30 million through Sunday: significantly topping the studio’s lowball $19 million projection.  Though knocked from first, Gravity remains a box office force. The global hit should take in another $20 million this weekend, putting it close to $200 million in total domestic earnings.

Ridley Scott’s The Counselor failed to make its case to audiences in spite of its A-list credentials. The Fox drama starring Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz and Brad Pitt earned an estimated $3.2 million on its first day in theatres. That means that The Counselor is unlikely to hit $10 million this weekend – the higher end of the film’s (very modest) pre-release projections.  We’ll have complete details and the top ten tomorrow.

 Title Friday Total
1.  Bad Grandpa $12,620,000 $12.6
2.  Gravity $6,160,000 $185.6
3.  Captain Phillips $3,625,000 $61.9
4.  The Counselor $3,200,000 $3.2
5.  Carrie $1,950,000 $22

    Gravity sucked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THERE’S NO PLOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Critics have hyped this movie in the hope the industry will survive but it’s failed. People realized it’s a hype job and now Rottentomatoes is no longer trusted by the public.

      Yeah it’s totally failed by being to top box office movie three weeks in a row while also receive overwhelming critical praise. I don’t know how Alfonso Curan can sleep at night.
