Box Office Numbers: Crime Day!


In a surprising turn of events, The Purge AKA CRIME DAY topped this weekend’s box office with a resounding $36m made in its opening weekend. The other major debut this weekend, The Internship, made half the amount The Purge made, proving that the combination of Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn doesn’t have the same pull it used to years ago. Then again, it could just have been the film’s premise…

Regardless, let’s all celebrate The Purge‘s monstrous opening weekend by sharing even more crimes that you’d commit on Crime Day. Let’s make a little contest out of this: The best Crime Day crime commented on here will win a gift card to somewhere. Where that’ll be is a surprise (meaning I haven’t decided just yet). For Crime Day!
