Despite some rather stinging reviews, Immortals has gotten off to a pretty good start at the US box office with $32 million dollars. That may not be as much as the likes of 300 and Clash of The Titans, but still marks the biggest opening for a film not released by one of the six major studios since The Expendables.
Adam Sandler’s Jack And Jill had to settle for second spot with $26 million, slightly lower than most of Sandler’s movies, but still ahead of Funny People. The film film should play well over the next couple of weeks though, with those looking for a laugh over Thanksgiving.
The only other new entry was J. Edgar, which despite the hype and star power of Leo DiCaprio made only $11.4 million. That’s not an amazing start, but is actually slightly ahead of Clint Eastwood’s last movie, Hereafter. Although with rather mixed reviews it may struggle in the weeks ahead.
Take a look below for the US box office top 10 for the weekend of November 11th-13th, 2011.
