'Real Steel' Tops Box Office for Second Week

Hugh Jackman‘s Real Steel maintained the top spot at the box office this weekend, bringing in an estimated $16.3 million in ticket sales.

The robot pic, which also stars Evangeline Lilly and Dakota Goyo, just edged out Julianne Hough‘s Footloose, which brought in $16.1 million, Variety reports.

Also released this weekend were The Thing, which took in $8.7 million, as well as Owen Wilson and Jack Black‘s comedy The Big Year, with a lower than expected $3.3 million.

    ‘Chalet Girl’, ‘Father of Invention’, ‘Texas Killing Fields’ and ‘Trespass’ should have all gotten a wide release. If they were given a fair chance, any one of them could have been No. 1 this week. They all have interesting casts (‘Chalet Girl’ – Ed Westwick, Felicity Jones, Tamsin Egerton, Sophia Bush, Brooke Shields, Bill Nighy) (‘Father of Invention’ – Kevin Spacey, Heather Graham, Johnny Knoxville, Virginia Madsen, John Stamos, Michael Rosenbaum) (‘Texas Killing Fields’ – Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jessica Chastain) (‘Trespass’ – Nicolas Cage, Nicole Kidman, Cam Gigandet). I would have liked to see how they would have done commercially if released nationwide and they deserve better than to go unnoticed by the public now.

    I’ve been saying it since 22 June 2010 when they announced the cast for Footloose – they would have been wiser to have cast someone like Shia LaBeouf, Anton Yelchin or Penn Badgley in Footloose instead of Kenny Wormald and this movie would have been No. 1 at the box office and much more critically and commercially successful.

    Steve Martin, Jack Black, Owen Wilson, Brian Dennehy, Rashida Jones, Rosamund Pike, Dianne Wiest, Anjelica Huston, Jim Parsons, Anthony Anderson, Tim Blake Nelson, Kevin Pollak.
    From the cast alone, ‘The Big Year’ looked like it would make a billion dollars but now won’t even make back its $41 million budget.

    Footloose’s Julianne Hough is really gorgeous and very talented. It’s an incredible performance, just wonderful.

  • Becky Shaw

    Fireflies in the Garden should have been released years ago and it is a disgrace that not only has it been needlessly delayed but it is only getting a limited release. It has a stellar cast (Ryan Reynolds, Julia Roberts, Willem Dafoe, Emily Watson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Ioan Gruffudd, Hayden Panettiere) and shouldn’t go unnoticed by the public now that it is finally released.

  • DeMarco

    A lot of people don’t know that the beautiful and talented Felicity Jones and Sophia Bush are cougars in the week’s new release, ‘Chalet Girl’. Ed Westwick is 24, Felicity is 27 and Sophia is 29.

    This week, Antonio Banderas’ new movie, The Skin I Live In, is only getting a limited release. In the last five years, his only nationwide theatrical releases have been a Spy Kids, Shrek, Puss In Boots or Zorro film. Everything else he has been in since 2006 has only gotten a limited release or gone straight to DVD such as Bordertown (2006), My Spy (2008), The Other Man (2008) and The Code (2009). It is a shame. He is an underrated actor and should have joined the A-list years ago. So, I hope he does more American mainstream movies from now on like he used to.

    At first I didn’t want to see that real steel movie because I was like wtf robots fighting really…. But now I’d watch it. Just for Hugh Jackman :p

  • carrie

    @Elin: it’s a spanish arty Pedro Almodovar movie

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    Footloose was a pretty good remake. Bacon is the man but the remake might be slightly better, better written for sure. But Real steal deserves to be #1 for awhile.

    I can’t believe how great Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) is in this surprisingly exciting and totally fun movie,its like the “boy and his robot movie” that Transformers should have been. Definately have to see it again at least once more.Superb.
