Toy Story 3 continues its box office dominance, Grown Ups finishes strong

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

This weekend seems to be an unusually heavily scrutinized weekend, only because it features a summer opening Tom Cruise move without “Mission Impossible” in the title.  His latest film, KNIGHT AND DAY, finished with $20.5 million ($28 since Wednesday), which was good enough for third place in a busy weekend.  Some will point to that number and say it’s a failure, but I see it as a victory given the tired storyline and the stiff competition.  The top movie of the weekend was TOY STORY 3, which continued its impressive run with another $58 million.  But maybe the most surprising movie of the weekend was GROWN UPS, which proves Adam Sandler is still box office gold, despite only appearing in maybe 4 movies that are actually watchable.

It’s good TOY STORY 3 did well this weekend, because next weekend it will be crushed by the unstoppable machine known as TWILIGHT: ECLIPSE.  I’m not seeing any broken records in its future, but it will obviously make crazy cash.
