Suddenly Susan is back with this weeks Box Office Breakdown!
Elysium did pretty well in my humble opinion and Jennifer Aniston didn’t kill We
Are The Millers! Score for WB!
Percy Jackson… Buddy.. Whew!
Check out the full recap from Suddenly Susan below!
No surprise at the top spot this weekend was the Matt Damon sci-fi thriller, Elysium. But, it fell short of the $38 million estimated by analysts and hoped for by the Studio, taking in only $30.4 million.
Jennifer Anniston’s new flick, We’re the Millers, came in at number two spot raking in close to $27 million. Not too shabby for an R rated pot smuggling comedy.
Disney’s Planes took flight with $22.5 million. The movie, produced DisneyToon Studios for $50 million, was originally intended for straight to video. The franchise and merchandizing that goes with it will be a financial score for Disney.
Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters came in at number four with $14.6 million, which is less than half its predecessor’s $31 million opening.
Guns 2 fell four slots and rounded out the top five. Looks like its fire power has already run out.
The Smurfs 2 slipped to the number 6 spot, with the hope of breaking even on its $105 million budget nowhere in sight.
Even harsher of a fall was The Wolverine, plummeting from number 2 to number 7.
The Conjuring is still serving up the scares and is one of the summer’s biggest sleeper hits.
Despicable Me 2 continued to rake in the dough at a total now of $338 million domestically.
Finishing off the top ten was Grown Ups 2 that clung to life with another $3.7 million.

Next weeks predictions!
I’m predicting that Kick Ass 2 will take the number one spot next weekend, with about $30 million. Paranoia will come in at number two with a much lower $18 million.
Check out Box Office Breakdown next week to see if I’m right!
