Safe House and The Vow stay on top – plus other surprises! Biff Bam Pop’s Box Office Wrap-Up Report, Weekend of February 17th, 2012
Box office results from this weekend’s movies are in! The top 2 spots this weekend went to familiar faces as both Safe House and The Vow hauled in another 23 million each. Great performances in both movies (though some would say Tatum’s lacks in the latter) should keep these 2 near the top for at least another week or so.
How did Nicholas Cage and The Rock fare? Which surprise under-performance made our results? See how our predictions stack up against the rest of this weekend’s Box Office Wrap Up.
Avengers vs. X-Men - THIS is what every fanboy and fangirl really wants. Slugfest. Mano a mano. Superhero vs. superhero. We want to see our favorites in combat. That’s just the way it is. We love when Batman fights Superman. We wait with baited breath for the next Thing vs. Hulk match. One of my own favorite Marvel Comics stories is the Avengers/Defenders clash. And let’s face it, there’s a reason that just the thought of the Avengers battling the Justice League makes us all drool just a little. It’s what we want, so why not give the people what they want.
Marvel has been having huge success in movie theaters of late. Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, all building to the big Avengers movie in May. Before that, and even now, they were doing well with the X-Men franchise. Everybody knows the characters now, even outside of the comics. And in the comics, other than Spider-Man, the X-Men and Avengers lines of titles are Marvel’s biggest. Talk about no-brainers, of course, they just have to do Avengers vs. X-Men, or as they’re calling it – AvsX.
