Box Office Numbers: Making foolies on all of you


Remember last week when I said I’d sneak in humanimal versions of the Flixist staff? Fooled you! Actually… I don’t even think anybody was aware of it… and I may or may not have forgotten about it. We can’t go back in time, so let’s chalk it up to gravity. That’s a plausible excuse, right?

This past weekend, Resident Evil: Retribution topped the charts. I understand the cash cow that comes with the Resident Evil film franchise, but my god, the films barely represent the source material of which they’re based on. Of course, with a solid box office take and a double entrendre-laden score of 69, the film has to be something special, right?

…maybe not. The rest of this week’s box office numbers are below.
