Kick-Ass 2 Continues to Do Anything But
With summer blockbuster season winding down, we’ve seen the last of the comic book movies hit the screen until later this fall and it was a mixed bag for the final few releases. Kick-Ass 2, which debuted last week dropped in it’s second week, shedding 68%. The movie dropped to 10th place to earn $4.27 million bringing its two week total to $22.4 million. The first movie had earned $32 million at this point. The good news is Kick-Ass 2 had a budget of $28 million and has earned $38.5 million globally. There’s a chance the movie will turn a slight profit when all things are said and done.
2 Guns slipped to #11 in its fourth week in theaters from the 10 spot the previous week.. That’s a drop of 41.7% from the previous week and it brought in an additional $3.4 million. The movie has brought in $65.4 million and had a budget of $61 million. The movie hasn’t opened internationally, so any profit will rely in how it does there, but looks like the movie will make it in the black, not bad for BOOM! Studios first comic to movie adaptation.
The Wolverine was in the 15 spot, earning $2.5 million with a domestic total after five weeks of a little more than $125 million. That’s well behind the total for 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which earned around $180 million domestically. Overseas the movie is doing better, where it’s earned $22 million more than the first movie for $225 million overseas and a grand total of $350.7 million. That puts the movie as the top grossing “X” film overseas, but still in the middle of the pack when it comes to grand total globally. The movie had a budget of $120 million.
