‘Rock of Ages’ Flops at Weekend Box Office
Rock of Ages has flopped at the box office. The highly anticipated rock musical never got close to Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, which maintained its number 1 spot with $35.5 million in its second weekend at domestic cinemas. Rock of Ages could only manage number 3 on the list, taking just $15.1 million. Taking into consideration the movie cast that includes Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Alec Baldwin among others, and all that marketing stuff throughout the U.S. over recent weeks, it’s a very, very, very poor taking.
Rock of Ages failed to bring audiences to theaters raking in an underwhelming $15.1 million.
Despite this flop Warner Bros. may be hoping the movie can hang around for some weeks near the top of the box office to earn a reasonable taking for its complete run. It has been reported that Rock of Ages managed to only draw older, female crowds.
On other movies. Despite some bad fan reviews Prometheus has held number 2 with $20.2 million. Adam Sandler’s new movie That’s My Boy also stumbled and took just $13 million, which is the worst showing for one of his comedies for decades. It came in at number 5, behind Snow White & the Huntsman, which took $13.8 million. That may be due to the movie being rated R, which prohibits under 17s from seeing the film.
According to Hollywood.com are the estimated ticket sales for the weekend at U.S. and Canadian theaters are following:
1. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, $35.5 million
2. Prometheus, $20.2 million
3. Rock of Ages, $15.1 million
4. Snow White & the Huntsman, $13.8 million
5. That’s My Boy, $13 million
6. Men in Black 3, $10 million
7. The Avengers, $8.8 million
8. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, $2.2 million
9. Moonrise Kingdom, $2.18 million
10. What to Expect When You’re Expecting, $1.3 million
