Summer Box Office Update

Here we are approaching the end of May. I thought it might be time to check in on our summer ponies. My prediction of $175 million for old Logan is starting to look pretty prophetic as the movie slowly inches toward that figure. Thus far, Wolverine is holding strong in the #2 summer movie position (though it will likely be overtaken eventually by Night at the Museum as well as other others that haven't opened yet) and it holds the biggest opening weekend so far (look for Transformers 2 to break it). On the bright side, Wolverine's $175ish total will be likely be good enough to keep above disappointing performances from other prequel-sequels Terminator and Angels & Demons. Not bad for a Canadian :)

1. Star Trek $75 Opening, $191 Total
2. X-Men Origins: Wolverine $85 Opening, $165 Total
3. Angels & Demons $46 Opening, $88 Total
4. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian $54 Opening, $70 Total
5. Terminator Salvation $42 Opening, $65 Total
