Box Office Numbers: Loud noises


Even before I looked at the numbers for this week, I had two scenarios in my head, both of which involve a battle for supremacy between two movies that feature extremely loud thunderous noises. In one, a group of loud men and women drive obnoxiously loud cars to drown out the sound of thunder, and in the other a man god thing gets really buff and smashes a bunch of highly modified cars with a hammer.

So, which vision became a reality this week? Did Fast Five keep its wheels spinning from last week, or did Thor stick the handle of a giant hammer in the proverbial wheel spokes that are Fast Five‘s profits? 

Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen. Here we go.

3. Jumping the Broom — $13,700,000

4. Something Borrowed — $13,155,000

5. Rio — $8,200,000

6. Water for Elephants — $5,600,000

7. Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family — $3,900,000

8. Prom — $2,425,000

9. Soul Surfer — $2,100,000
