You might have had a pretty busy weekend, what with getting ready for the Oscars, making a guest appearance on “General Hospital,” and whatever else you have going on. What you probably DIDN’T do this weekend was actually go to the movies, since the numbers this weekend were low enough to be in “kind of feel sorry for the people in the movie” territory.

The first place slot was mercilessly seized in its third week by the “holy shit that’s a real movie” movie Gnomeo and Juliet with $14.2 million (that’s 728.4 million in gnome dollars). Second place went to Hall Pass, which opened this weekend to a total of $13.4 million. The weekend’s REAL disappointment, though, was Drive Angry 3D, which, despite being a batshit crazy movie starring Nicolas Cage, only managed to collect $5.1 million. Sorry, Nicolas Cage. Maybe next time.

You can get a more complete run-down of the weekend’s disappointment over at Box Office Mojo.

Weekend Box Office Report: Show Me The Bieber (No, Says America)! http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/weekend-box-office-report-show-me-the-bieber-no-says-america/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/weekend-box-office-report-show-me-the-bieber-no-says-america/#comments Mon, 14 Feb 2011 16:46:40 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=26674 This weekend was a chance for messianic pop star Justin Bieber to show he reigns supreme not just on Twitter, but where it counts: At the box office.

This weekend was a chance for messianic pop star Justin Bieber to show he reigns supreme not just on Twitter, but where it counts: A the box office. But, alas, it looks like Bieber will need to get cast as Robin in order to get a number 1 slot, since his Never Say Never‘s $30.3 million wasn’t enough to overthrow Adam Sandler’s laziness in Just Go With It‘s $31 million. I predict both Adam Sandler and (after the Grammys) Esperanza Spalding to be found gnawed apart by hordes of teenage girls. It happened to Fatty Arbuckle, look it up.

Outside the top 2, we have this week’s “Can that possibly be a real title?” with Gnomeo and Juliet, which grossed $25.5 million for a number 3 spot. After that is something called The Eagle, which I gotta admit I’d never heard of. Apparently I wasn’t alone, since it only grossed $8.6 million. (via boxofficemojo.com)
