The last weekend of the box office in the USA has left as Nº1 to the Bruno movie, the new film of one of the characters of the English comedian Sacha Cohen after Ali G and Borat.
Despite being released with a good advertising campaign and in more than 2.700 theaters, it has only achieved $ 30 million in revenue when the forecasts were much higher.
The second place is for the previous Nº1, Ice age 3, which only loses 30% of collection, achieving 28 million more dollars for a total of 120, so we will have a quarter of this saga.
We will also have renewal of Transformers because its second part has become the highest grossing film in the USA with 339 million dollars raised. Although, it must be said that in the rest of the world it has not worked very well, especially in Spain.
Fourth place is for Public Enemies with Jhony Depp who achieves another 14 million dollars for a sum of 66 but very far from exceeding the 100 million that it has cost without counting the advertising expenses.
Sandra Bullock with Proposition has returned to pick up the success that it had not had in cinema for many years. Fifth place and 113 million collection.
Another unexpected hit has been the comedy Hangover in Las Vegas, currently in sixth place, and with 220 million raised when it only cost 40 so in ratio it has given more benefits to its production company than Transformers 2. Such has been the success that the second part is being prepared.
Instead, close the table The taking of Pelham 1 2 3 with Denzel Washington and John Travolta with a total collection of 61 million dollars so we can say that it has been a failure because it has cost a whopping 100 million dollars.
