America Loves Monsters, Katie Holmes Not So Much

January 20, 2008 / Posted by:

Not surprisingly, “Cloverfield” was tops at the box office this weekend. That shit brought in $41 million setting a box-office record with the biggest MLK opening ever. It also broke the record with the biggest January opening. Unfortunately, the same can not be said for Katie Holmes’ Mad Money.” That shit tanked. It only brought in $7.7 million in over 2,400 locations. The movie cost $22 million to make and Katie apparently only got paid $250,000. She passed on the Batman sequel in order to do this wreck. Good move.

The rest of the list looked like this:

1. Cloverfield – $41 million
2. 27 Dresses – $22.4 million
3. The Bucket List – $15.1 million
4. Juno – $10.2 million
5. National Treasure: Book Of Secrets – $8.1 million
6. First Sunday – $7.8 million
7. Mad Money – $7.7 million
8. Alvin And The Chipmunks – $7 million
9. I Am Legend – $5.1 million
10. Atonement – $4.7 million

I went to see that “Cloverfield” thing, because I buy into hype. I have already completely forgotten what it’s about.
