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.

About billfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
