Monday Box Office results.
The long awaited sequel to the Men in Black franchise successfully defeated Avengers atop the box office over this Memorial Day weekend. Competing with Men in Black 3 was the thriller Chernobyl Diaries and Wes Anderson’s quirky Moonrise Kingdom. MIB3 pulled in $55,000,000.00 domestically and $132,000,000.00 at the foreign box office with a grand total of $187,000,000.00 worldwide. . Although certainly not a record breaker it is good news for a franchise whose last entry was ten years ago and wasn’t very well received by critics and fans alike. The Avengers came in second place with $36,987,000.00 for the weened increasing its overall domestic total to $513,672,000.00 and along with its $781,600,000.00 at the foreign box office for a grand total $1,295,272,000 world wide. Despite its second place finish the Avengers is still performing strongly.
I did not include Chernobyl Diaries or Moonrise Kingdom in my reviews of upcoming movies so I will include their trailers here today. They do look interesting and I may give them a view when they come out on DVD.
