It’s funny… This week the MTF Family was dissed by Harrison Ford and Liam Hemsworth of Paranoia and also Ashton Kutcher from Jobs. Both movies… bombed at the Box Office. Doh!
I know Suddenly Susan thought Jobs showing wasn’t bad, however it wasn’t what the studio wanted or expected.
Add those up with Channing Tatum’s recent diss and White House Down bomb. I think we have a recipe for studios to follow. Be nice to the MTF Family!
Check out this weeks Box Office Breakdown after the jump!
We learned two things this week – one, never underestimate the drawing power of Oprah, and two, I stink at box office predictions!
The Butler cleaned up with a hefty $25, claiming the number one spot.
We’re the Millers held strong in the number two spot again, while Matt Damon’s sci-fi
thriller Elysium fell to number three.
Kick Ass 2, which was my prediction for the top spot, opened at a rather poor $13.5 million in the number four spot. Was this even a sequel people were asking be made?
Planes is still flying high at number five and Percy Jackson only slipped two spots to number six.
Though Jobs opened in seventh place, $6.7 million is strong showing for an indie flick that cost just $12 million to make. I stand firm that if a better actor (and by better I mean anyone other than Ashton Kutcher) been cast, Jobs could have been on its way to the Oscars.
2 Guns still had a little fire power at number eight, and The Smurfs made a smurfy good show at the number nine spot.
The Wolverine clung to the tenth spot with his adamantium claws.
Just a side note, Paranoia OPENED at the number 13th spot. 13th!! Maybe Liam and Harrison will show their fans a little more love next time they’re at a premiere.

Tune in next Sunday and read all about it.
Until next time, happy movie going!
