BOX OFFICE: VINCE VAUGHN NEEDS INTERVENTION

12.08.08 9 years ago 24 Comments

The only new movies opening in wide release over the weekend were Punisher: War Zone and Cadillac Records, which finished at numbers eight and nine, respectively (full top ten below).  Hopefully they’ll just keep rebooting the Punisher franchise until they get it right – hey, I hear Will Smith’s son is available.  Oh yeah, and that godawful abortion Four Christmases landed in the top spot for the second week in a row.  First Fred Claus, now this.  Congratulations, America, you’ve made it possible for Vince Vaughn to make one shitty movie a year at Christmas time and dick around the other 11 months.  Which is great for Vince Vaughn and the manufacturers of home pregnancy and STD tests, but bad for we the viewers.  All I want for Christmas is good Vince Vaughn movies, and to not get STDs. Is that so much to ask?  Please, just say no to Christmas movies.  And PCP.

1. “Four Christmases,” $18.2 million.
2. “Twilight,” $13.2 million.
3. “Bolt,” $9.7 million.
4. “Australia,” $7 million.
5. “Quantum of Solace,” $6.6 million.
6. “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa,” $5.1 million.
7. “Transporter 3,” $4.5 million.
8. “Punisher: War Zone,” $4 million.
9. “Cadillac Records,” $3.5 million.
10. “Role Models,” $2.6 million.
