    BOX OFFICE WATCH: 09-11 JULY, WEEK 28 OF 2010

    Week 28/2010
    US BOX OFFICE WEEKEND 09-11 July 2010


    This week, Universal opened the biggest opening weekend ever for the studio in more than a year. The animation Despicable Me dominated the box office with $56.4 million and is unable to take in as the largest non-Pixar original opening from Kung Fu Panda ($60.2 million). The other weekend fellow opener, Predators did some respectable opening by grossing $24.8 million for third place. Most of holdovers were holding relatively well this weekend. This week, Green Tea Movie was unable to provide you with in-depth analysis of the new opener. Check out the table for the top ten chart below. The top ten films this weekend surged to an estimated $191.1 million (second highest of the year), up a massive 45% from last year when Bruno opened at the top spot ($30.6 million); and up 37% from 2008 when Hellboy II debuted at number one with $34.5M. This is the third year in a row that Universal opened a new film at number one on this particular frame.
