Box Office Thoughts for the Weekend of July 4, 2008

Despite its poor reviews, Hancock ended up on top during the Forth of July weekend. Here are the numbers:

  1. Hancock – $66M
  2. WALL·E – $33.4M
  3. Wanted – $20.6M
  4. Get Smart – $11.1M
  5. Kung Fu Panda – $7.5M
  6. The Incredible Hulk – $4.98M
  7. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – $3.94M
  8. Kit Kittredge: An American Girl – $3.6M
  9. Sex and the City – $2.35M
  10. You Don’t Mess with the Zohan – $2M

Will Smith’s movies are usually successful and the $66M made by Hancock is a decent number, despite the fact that it is about $10M less than what I Am Legend opened with last December. It’s also down from the $70.5M Transformers made last year.

Last week’s top film Wall-E dropped down to number two with a gross of $33.4M, bringing its two-week total to $128M.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull added $3.94M bring its total gross to $307M. However, that gross is still second to Iron Man, which even though it is now out of the top 10, it now has a total gross of $312M.

And that’s the box office thoughts for this week.
