Transformers 3 reigns supreme while Horrible Bosses and Zookeeper take a backseat

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

It’s probably not going to be a big surprise to find out that Michael Bay’s third installment TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON has pulled out another successful weekend at the box office. The two “big” openers this week were HORRIBLE BOSSES, the comedy starring Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis, about three guys who plan on killing their bosses and ZOOKEEPER, the awful comedy starring Kevin James. Both of these came in a respectable second and third place, although I’m personally shocked ZOOKEEPER managed to pull in as much as it did.

Pixar’s CARS 2 is still going somewhat strong and still pulling in some cash, while the other kiddie film MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS has taken a plunge and is barely hanging in the top. I wouldn’t look for either to be particularly high next week as they are slowly losing steam, but CARS 2 will probably stay in the top ten for a bit since it’s really the only child friendly film with any real staying power.

Next weekend sees the opening of quite possibly the biggest film of the year in HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 2. That film is probably already breaking records in pre-sales and will most definitely boot TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON down to second place. The other contender will be Disney’s WINNIE THE POOH which may or may not do something since there hasn’t been a ton of marketing for it and some people may not even realize it’s coming out this coming week. Note: the numbers below will be updated as they become final.
