    I saw the Darkest Hour and it was soooo awesome! I want to go back and see it in 3D :)

  • jeffrey spender

    i have to say im surprised it is #1.

  • Whatever

    Slowest, worst of the series. It was PAINFUL to sit thru this movie.

    We went Saturday….only because there was not a lot of movies that looked worth watching…..that’s probably why it’s number one….no competition!!

    The first hour held my attention…the last hour I was looking at my watch every 5 minutes……

    I agree… was the SLOWEST of the series….should have been at least a half hour shorter….take an alarm clock if you go to see this one.

    Jared your numbers are old, all movies over performed on xmas, so estimates were revised up

  • yep

  • mel

    I thought The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was going to perform better with all the hype sorrounding it…

  • Brando

    Sherlock Holmes was awesome! It’s earned 90 million since opening, and I hope their satisfied enough with the box office so there’s a Sherlock Holmes 3! I haven’t seen MI4 yet, but I probably won’t watch it in IMAX, too expensive. I can see why it’s total box office is higher.

  • susan

    all i can say is Simon Pegg rules; he’s awesome in MI4

  • c

    Already seen Sherlock Holmes (it was good!) Planning on seeing Mission Impossible now, tom cruise is an awesome actor!!!

    Is Jared in Tom Cruise’s PR hip pocket by any chance?

  • baaaad1

    Without all those expensive Imax ticket prices, his numbers would be a lot lower. These numbers still aren’t great. Only 26 million from Fri through Sunday! Plus the studio is pushing the overseas numbers. Domestic is all that matters for every other movie, except crazy tom’s.

    I saw Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Fincher did a great job with the English adaptation and Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara work really well together. However, I my preference is for the Swedish film versions.


    where is the jolie rapefest?

  • ellie’

    Saw Mission what a great movie..Tom is such a great actor of the best..

  • Champ

    @baaaad1: I agree, the MI totals aren’t that astounding. I don’t get why all the buzz about it, the box office isn’t that impressive. Paramount PR, I guess.
