Just to wrap things up, re our “Bad Week For Comic Book Movies” post, THE LOSERS was another blow to the Joel Silver empire, coming in at #4 with a tepid $9.6 million, behind the ancient HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON films. J-Lo’s comeback also failed, coming in a weak #2, and KICK-ASS fell to fifth.
1. “How to Train Your Dragon” – $15 million
2. “The Back-Up Plan” – $12.2 million
3. “Date Night” – $10.6 million
4. “The Losers” – $9.6 million
5. “Kick-Ass” – $9.5 million
Overall, it was a crap weekend at the box office, as ticket sales were down significantly from last year.
