Labor Day 2012 Box Office Numbers Typical
The rest of the list was similar and looked like this:
- The Expendables 2 finally slipped a bit from their powerful domination of the box office but they still kept a solid $11,000,000 going for the weekend and $68,559,000 overall. Who knew the old fellas would draw that kind of bank?
- The Bourne Legacy came next drawing $9,377,000. This movie really has not done as well as I thought that it might. Apparently not having Jason Bourne is a big deal after all. (Or not having Matt Damon)
- ParaNorman, the kids stop motion 3D movie that terrifies kids is next with $8,853,000. This movie has puzzled me from day one and I really don’t get the point. If it is a kids movie that is really for adults, then just say so. Otherwise, stop calling it a kids movie right?
That concludes the top five and makes it abundantly clear that Labor Day is not a good weekend for theatrical releases. The one surprise here is Possession and it deserves all the praise it is getting. This movie will scare you out of your mind if you are not ready to deal with the jolts. There is something about the little girl that just creeps us out.
