Weekly Movie Post – Sept. 15, 2009

This past weekend was pretty lame at the movies and the box-office totals show just that. According to The Numbers.com, the number one movie of the week was I Can Do Bad All By Myself. This was probably due to the fact that enough people have already seen Inglourious Basterds and District 9.

I Can Do Bad All By Myself took in approx. over $23 million to take the top spot. Don’t expect it to stay there next week; Tyler Perry movies generally take in 60% less in their second weekend so it may take a big fall. Although, it’s doubtful it will take as much of a fall as The Final Destination did. The latest installment in the cheating death series took in less than half than it did last week in its opening weekend. It took the 5th spot with a slim $5.5 million which wasn’t even enough to beat the giant flop All About Steve ($5.6 million) or Inglourious Basterds ($6.1 million) which has been out for four weeks.

The other new releases this past week did pretty bad. 9 came in 2nd place with a little more than $10 million. Sorority Row came in 6th with $5 million and Whiteout came in 7th just short of $5 million. Outside of the Tyler Perry movie, all the new releases of the weekend received generally bad reviews so it’s not surprising that the numbers were low.
