The numbers agree: we were right! White House Down raced up the box office charts, winning the weekend with $40 million! We’d brag some more, but this was a no-brainer. Channing Tatum plus Jamie Foxx equals major bank.
Things weren’t so rosy for The Heat, which should have been called The Cold. Paul Feig’s cop comedy flopped in its opening weekend, pulling in a measly $25.7 million. Maybe audiences across the nation follow the same people on Twitter that we do.
Meanwhile, we knew that our troops were tough and brave, but we didn’t know how tough or how brave. G.I. Joe: Retaliation continues to fight for its spot in the box office top thirty, pulling in $74 thousand over the weekend and continuing to thrill audiences since its March release. At this rate, it may remain in theaters for the rest of 2013.
