Battle at the Box Office 6/13

Super 8 was the winner of the box office this weekend but it was far from a blockbuster.  The movie made $37 million, which is better than some recent similar movies like District 9, Battle: Los Angeles and The Day the Earth Stood Still but was less than it’s cousin Cloverfield (which made $40 million) and far less than The Karate Kid’s opening last year at this time.  Paramount is saying that Super 8 will probably have a long tail so we’ll have to see how much it drops off this coming weekend.  Speaking of drop offs, X-Men: First Class had a 54% drop off from last weekend with $25 million.  It’s just shy of $100 million.  Hangover, Kung Fu Panda and Pirates rounded out the top 5.  The other new release from last weekend, Judy Moody, was a disaster, opening with just under $7 million, putting it in seventh place.
