Navy SEALS And Act Of Valor
February 26, 2012 by staff
Navy SEALS And Act Of Valor, The stars may the focus of tonight’s Oscars, but they were not necessarily needed at the movies. Act of Valor, the low-budget, action flick featuring active-duty members of the Navy SEALs, scored a direct hit at the box office.
New films from bold-faced names Jennifer Aniston and Amanda Seyfried, meanwhile, just plain bombed. Aniston’s Wanderlust, costarring Paul Rudd, debuted on the wrong side of the Top 10, in eighth place, with just $6.6 million, per Friday-Sunday estimates.
The Seyfried thriller Gone was even weaker: ninth place, $5 million. For Aniston, Wanderlust marks her worst wide-release opening since 2005′s Rumor Has It. In other words, yes, The Switch opened bigger.
Nothing was bigger this time out than Act of Valor, which captured No. 1 with an expectations-exceeding $24.7 million. The $12 million film was sold to young men, and it was seen by young men, who liked it. A lot. The movie was graded an A by opening-weekend audiences.
Wanderlust and Gone received discouraging grades of B-minus and C-plus, respectively.
Elsewhere, Tyler Perry reminded that a star name does matter—or, at least, that his star name matters. His new romantic drama, Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds, took second place with $16 million, a solid number for a non-Madea movie.
Among the holdovers, the Denzel Washington hit Safe House dropped from first to fourth, but came up on $100 million domestically, while Channing Tatum’s The Vow became the first film of 2012 to break the magic nine-figure mark.
Things went from bad to worse for Nicolas Cage’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, which saw its already-soft ticket sales fall by more than half.
