Bourne Legacy tops Box Office

Bourne Legacy, released on Friday knocked Batman out of the top spot. The movie stars Jeremy Renner who takes over from Matt Demon although he is playing a different character. It took in $40,265,000 domestically and  $7,800,000 in the foreign market for a grand total of  $48,065,000. For some reason that doesn’t sound like a lot for a movie like that.

Number 2 this week was the Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis comedy the Campaign which took in  $27,440,000. The Dark Knight Rises came in 3rd with $19,540,000 domestically with a larger total of  $390,149,000 domestically and : $445,300,000 oversees for a grand total of…. $835,449,000.

I just wanted to report of the remake of the Total Recall movie. It seems to be bombing at the box office. This week it was number 6 on the box office charts and this are its numbers.

Domestic: $44,188,000
+ Foreign: $27,500,000
= Worldwide: $71,688,000

I get sad to see some of these movies bomb. Maybe Hollywood is too remake crazy these days?






About liamfoley63

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.
