    Horrible movie!

  • Maria

    Absolutely well deserved!!! I went for a third time last night, 17 days after it’s released here, and the cinema still had full seats for three shows! It’s a movie that you just can’t get enough and you understand more in each viewing.

  • frisbee

    Really, JJ? You’re going to pin Battleship on Skarsgard and Rhianna over Kitsch and Decker?

  • celia_luv

    @ Mattchew i hope for your sake u mean Battleship because Avengers was AMAZING! If u were the 0.000000000000000000000001% of viewers who did not think so, then prepare for a barrage of abuse from people on here. seriously. i’d probably even stop reading. no, seriously.

  • hmmm

    Looks like another bomb for Johnny Depp.
    Maybe now he will get the message that people want him to be an actor, not a caricature.

  • an opinion

    Jlo’s movie bomb bigtime yet Forbes has her as number 1 celeb. Shows what bs Forbes’ list are. Jlo better think twice about leaving Idol because her music and acting career ain’t that fab.

  • NixonJennie5

    as Frances implied I am dazzled that people able to profit $5138 in four weeks on the computer. have you seen this

  • Karen

    Wow horrible numbers for Battleship and WTEWYE

  • Toni

    I hope to see The Avengers tonight for my birthday. This is the first movie in a log time where I really want to go out and see it.

  • aquarius64

    Battleship – Universal’s Titanic, and not in a good way.

    The other Universal project, Snow White and the Huntsman, is now under the gun to bring it on its opening weekend.

  • Kiki

    Hopefully, this is the end of Brooklyn Decker’s alleged acting career.

  • frisbee

    @Kiki: Brooklyn lucked out – everyone’s talking about Taylor Kitsch and his two massive flops, but she is also having two flops – on THE SAME DAY. Has any of that ever happened before, coz dayum! If Kitsch and Decker have anything in common, from agency to shampoo, they should both get rid of it asap, it’s clearly cursed.

  • Annie

    We’re is JJ getting its facts from because Box Office Mojo has “The Dictators” making 24,456,000 and not 17,000,000 and did JLO movie make 12mill or the 10 Mill that Box Office Mojo reporteding?

  • Kiki

    @Annie: Annie, The Dictator opened before Friday. So the number here is just for the weekend. The 25M total is for the whole 5 days run that the movie’s been out.

  • She Stinks!

    As predicted, that low class no talent bad acting JHO Bag in a movie = bomb. No surprise there.

  • Kiki

    @frisbee: Yeah, Decker’s having 2 flops on the same weekend!!! And well-deserved. I’m so sick of these models wannabes trotting the red carpet AS IF they’re on the same league as real talented actresses.

    I just feel for Taylor Kitsch, really, I liked John Carter and I don’t think either flops was his fault.

  • http://website,computer Dave From Canada

    I just saw “Dark Shadows” for the second time (good movie – and it’s hanging in there at number 4 in the top ten movies this week – number 2 last week) and I plan to see The Avengers soon!

  • frisbee

    @Kiki: Same can be said for Decker – neither of her flops is her fault. The difference between her and Taylor Kitsch is that one can do better and the other cannot. So, honestly? I’m holding Kitsch more responsible for his flops than Decker. (Although obviously the fault is to the extent of a passive enabler to an alcoholic. No performance could’ve saved Battleship).

  • Sarah.

    Father and son Skarsgard top the box office! That’s awesome. I loved the Avengers and Battleship. Kinda surprising that the Dictator is on #3. I don’t expect much of that movie obviously.. :p


    Taylor Kitsch is the bomb!

  • karl

    i fail to see how batlleships numbers are bad? you are comparing it to a movie that has been hyped to the skies for I dont know how long. and yeah, avengers pretty much is just that, hype… its the “cool” thing to go and see, “I mean whats cool about a movie based on a boardgame, i mean come on, its a boardgame…” and there ends my typical american stereotype…

  • @21

    Battleship commercials are on CONSTANTLY, so you can’t say that it wasn’t hyped.
    The biggest difference between Avengers and Battleship is the cast.
    How can you compare Rhiana, Brooklin and Alex with the likes of Robert Downey, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlet Johansen, etc?
    You can’t

  •!/BellaDonna1802 ChacesKitten

    I saw both Battleship and What To Expect When You’re Expecting, both were great, but they were not on the same level of The Avengers, which I did see opening weekend and plan on seeing again.

  • rogger

    Hell yeah!! That movie is insanely good!!

  • Taylor who?

    I have no idea how anyone thought it would be a good idea for that Taylor Kitch guy to lead 2 big budget movies? Isn’t he a TV actor? I’ve never heard of him other than gossib blogs but that’s not enough for me to spend my hard-earned cash on (since I don’t watch whatever show he’s in so I have no clue if he’s any good). Doubt I’m the only one. When story wasn’t strong enough to bring in the punters and leads aren’t either, what were they expecting?

  • Kaya

    Avengers was so much fun. If you take it for what it is, it’s really a first class film.

  • B.O.

    Looks like Battleship could be a bigger bomb than John Carter! I didn’t think that was possible. The numbers were worse than the lowest projections.

  • MarĂ­a

    i m sorry for alex skarsgard he deserves better roles than battleship he is a good actor.

  • Tina

    Avengers sinks Battleship. Alexander Skarsgard couldn’t even save this stinker.

  • Alex is a nobody

    Alex skarsgard is a low class cable tv guy, who is overrated and trying to make it as an A list HW and is only
    known for taking his clothes off in tb and sleeping with Kate bosworth and flirting with any women that comes his way.
    where is his talent he is a nobody and he is no Robert downy jr or his dad stellan skarsgard those are great actors
    his movie straw dogs bombed at the box office big time and battleship is bombing and most of Alexanders movies don’t make millions and millions and he always blabs on about Sweden this Sweden that etc and his love for music no one gives a crap about his country or his music

  • Battlesh!t

    battleship sunk over seas! I live in Europe and it’s bombed pretty much everywhere. I don’t know where the huge figures for this movie are comin from! It has even stopped sowing in some cinemas! terrible movie.

  • Sofie

    The thing I really don’t get about Battleship is that they kept billing it as a summer popcorn movie. So obviously they released it in.. May? It’s still 70 degrees outside! That kind of plotless action movie is only going to do well when the thermometer is pushing triple digits.

  • final

    Battleship isn’t “bombing” on its opening week, its bombing on its AMERICAN opening week. The movie has already opened a couple a weeks ago in different countries and made more than 200 Million $
    Compared to the Avengers anything is a flop.

  • jackson

    @Kiki: agreed.

    It doesn’t seem right that she gets paid to “learn” on the job – the job being, uttering three or four-word sentences and travel around the world, hobknob with celebrities (and, hey, if she doesn’t make it, her husband’s large nest egg will easily support her)

    meanwhile real actors struggle through four-year drama programs, study shakespeare, dream their whole lives to make it onto the big screen and have to wait tables to pay the rent until they do – if they even get a chance to make it….

  • Mascot

    Battleship opened this past weekend to the lowest domestic opening numbers ever for a film with a budget with $200 million or above: $25.3 million. The film cost an estimated $209 million to make.
