Now on to the rest of the top 10…
The enormous theater expansions for both The Black Swan & The King’s Speech helped both films respective box office takes soar pushing them past my box office predictions and moving The Fighter down two spots. A slew of holiday leftovers were able to post modest declines as Yogi Bear held strong with a small decline as it was the only real option for adults to take their children to, while Little Fockers/Tron continued to under-perform.
I believed Country Strong would have held a little better at the box office due to Gwyneth Paltrow’s appearance on SNL as well as her rumored duet with Cee-Lo(which did not occur) of his song “Forget You,” but in this case it did not.
Rounding out the rest was Nicolas Cage’s The Season Of The Witch which tumbled in its second weekend but was still able to manage to finish inside the top 10 . This was above my prediction that it would it would fall out of the top ten completely, showing that people still want to see Cage in films ,and hopefully his upcoming Drive Angry will perform somewhat better.
Well, that’s all for now folks! Stay tuned for this week’s Box Office Predictions.
