Cloverfield Hotties Top Box Office

Cloverfield, the much-buzzed monster movie from Lost mastermind JJ Abrams, topped box offices this weekend.

The film took in $41 million, according to studio estimates ($10 million more than projected estimates). Cloverfield‘s budget was only $25-$30 million.

If you’ve already seen Cloverfield and didn’t sit through the ridiculous 12-minutes-long credits, you probably missed this. An audio clip was played backwards!

The Katherine Heigl romantic comedy 27 Dresses also doubled projections, raking in $22 million. Here’s the rest of the top 10 films:

3) The Bucket List — $15.2 million
4) Juno — $10.3 million
5) National Treasure: Book of Secrets — $8.1 million
6) First Sunday — $7.8 million
7) Mad Money — $7.7 million
8) Alvin and the Chipmunks — $7 million
9) I Am Legend — $5.1 million

Love it….the golddiggers movie FLOPPED!!! hAHAHAHAHHA
What’s Tommy and Katie going to do now? They’re both LOSERS. Katie’s movie debuted with $2.3 million? That must be a record for the worst opening ever.

Told you so cult lovers. Can’t wait for Team Cult to start posting excuses. here!!!!

The two freaks need to start their own FREAK SHOW. LMAO!!!!!!

Famous, Miapocca, and all TomKat – she flopped and so badly.

According to US Magazine:

Moviegoers didn’t flock to see Katie Holmes’ return to the big screen this weekend.

Her comedy Mad Money, co-starring Queen Latifah and Diane Keaton, came in at No. 5 with $2.3 million, according to preliminary estimates.

Cloverfield, the sci-fi monster flick, was the box office champ with $16.8 million.

No. 2: Katherine Heigl’s romantic comedy 27 Dresses, with $7.7 million. (See her in a bridesmaid dress here.)

The Jack Nicholson comedy The Bucket List ranked No. 3 with $4.2 million, while the indie comedy Juno (starring Ellen Page, who just signed on for Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut) came in at No. 4 with $3 million.

Critics had slammed Holmes for her role. The New York Times called her “the movie’s weakest link.”

Holmes, who seems to have changed a lot since her early days based on her talk show appearances this week, also recently got blasted for some questionable style moves in NYC.

Her husband Tom Cruise faced his own criticism for a series of newly surfaced videos in which he says he helped save America after 9/11 and declares that psychiatry doesn’t work.

==================================================

Ha ha ha ha ha ha , mad maney flopped.

It’s a sad day when Jack Nicholson is beat out by Katherine Heigl

======================================================
Jack Nicholson’s movie has two weeks at the B O.

Early estimates are “always” higher than the final numbers so each movie above will make 1 to 2 million “less” than the totals listed above. 27 dresses probably 20 million and mad money probably 6 million. They had to have spent millions on promotion for mad money because the trailer/commercial was on tv non stop until Saturday morning. Hopefully mad money will go away now.

ALRIGHT!!!! It’s awesome that both Cloverfield and 27 Dresses succeeded, and 27 doubled it’s projection. Congrats to J.J. Abrams and Katherine Heigl on their success. I’m really interested in seeing how the whole weekend pans out after Monday is done. I bet these two movies will continue to increase their profit. I saw 27 Dresses in a packed theatre, and I loved it. It’s a great romantic comdey, and Katherine Heigl and James Marsden were just downright adoreable.

“Cloverfield” was a good movie. I don’t think its the watershed moment in the history of monster movies that some on-line geeks (Harry Knows of “Aint It Cool News” for one) seem to think it is. It basically felt like “The Blair Witch Project” with a budget. But the good news is I bought the love story that at its core and it had some effectively scary scenes. And the monster once you get a good look at it is fairly original looking.

I loved Cloverfield. It did make me really sick with all the documentary camera movements, but I liked it. I was holding onto my friend the whole time. I saw it 2 times. The ending shocking me though, to be honest. lol. I also saw 27 dresses. That was so cute. I loved it. I love Katherine Heigl and James Marsden! I recommend those two movies.

It got a lot of promotion behind the scenes on the internet and with pre-screenings. I’m not surprised.

Yay, I am so happy for Odette. Cloverfield rocked

People saw it was good and went to go see it. Congrats J.J. Abrams

mmm Mike Vogel and Michael Stahl-David… so attractive.

flop is such a strong word.

damn that diane keaton! she ruined the movie! lol

the_original_nika @ 01/20/2008 at 4:11 pm

I’m not surprised that it did good. It got a lot of promotion and people reacted to it positive.
new stars might be born, only time will tell…

OVERRATED. I went to the midnight showing eeeearly Friday, and while the film LOOKED cool, there was no substance to it. The only good thing about it was the camera work.

I preferred 27 Dresses to be honest, lol.

Mmmm, Mike Vogel!

This movie gave me vertigo..seriously.. I saw it Friday and I am still sick, I had to leave the theater, and I never do that.

Wonder how it ended? if they found Beth..found out what the monster was.. oh well… this movie should come with a warning.

I CANT WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!! AND THAT CLIP IS REALLY FREAKY!!!!!!! I HOPE THAT THERES A SEQUEL TO CLOVERFIELD!!!!

Does anyone know where Michael Stahl David”s Chicago shirt is from?
