'The Hangover Part II' Pulls Off Box Office Win

The Hangover Part II
It's really no surprise that The Hangover Part II has topped this weekends US box office with an incredible $118 million in only four days, or that it trounced its predecessor which only managed $44 million. Total Film revealed that director Todd Phillips already has plans for a third film and with figures like this I'm sure that won't be a problem. 

Kung Fu Panda 2 only managed the surprisingly lowly sum of $48 million in it's first weekend. I guess this must be a result of it being released at the same time as one of the biggest films this year in the form of The Hangover Part II but I enjoyed the first film so much as I would've thought the reputation of Kung Fu Panda would have showed more. The film has been well received but I think those behind it will be disappointed with the figures. Maybe it will see a bigger audience in the weeks to come.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides dropped to third in the US box office with $39 million
while Bridesmaids came in fourth with $16 million. Thor closed out the top five with only $9 million.

Fast Five proves its worth with the capture of sixth position and a total of $6.6 million. Woody Allen's new film Midnight In Paris made it into the top 10 during its second week but only found itself in seventh with $1.9 million. Jumping The Broom came eighth ($1.9m), Something Borrowed ended in ninth ($1.8m) and closing out the top ten is Rio ($1.7m) which continues its seriously lengthy run in the box office top ten.

What did you see this weekend?

I am very excited about seeing The Hangover 2! Looks just as funny as the first!

I am looking forward to it but I think it may be too similar to the first. However, lots of a good thing is not bad at all
