Box Office: Bruno Has the Last Laugh


It was an odd little lineup of possibilities at the box office over the weekend: a racy and squirm-inducing adult comedy, an animated prehistoric adventure for kids', some robot cars, slick gangsters, teens with crushes, some family drama, a proposal, a hangover and more. The racy comedy, Bruno, took in the most in box office sales for the weekend with $30.4 million, though Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (in its second weekend) was close behind with $28.5 million. Bruno also experienced a 39% drop from Friday to Saturday, "indicating that most fans turned out on opening day."

Still, co-chair/co-CEO of Media Rights Capitol (which financed and produced the film) Modi Wiczyk is pleased with the opening weekend results: "Not bad for a movie that doesn't have talking robots."

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen continues to transform everything in its path into dollar signs, coming in third place not far behind Ice Age with $24 million. Public Enemies and The Proposal took the fourth and fifth spots respectively.

Yah, Bruno actually came in 3rd on Saturday. AKA - Word of mouth is not helping the movie. It'll be out of the Top 10 in a month
