Box Office Numbers: Prickle


Think Like a Man topped the box office again this weekend. Surprisingly, The Five-Year Engagement underperformed. I’m a huge fan of Jason Segel (and most of the Freaks and Geeks alumni, in fact), so I hope this isn’t a sign of Segel-fatigue. Maybe it was Emily Blunt’s fault. Why would you do this to him, Emily? WHY?!

This week, the first film in the huge Summer of Superheroes releases with the highly-anticipated The Avengers avenging on Friday. Spoiler alert: It made almost $180m in international box offices, perhaps foreshadowing its own domestic success. You know, If I were a superhero, I’d be Prickle from the Gumby universe. Think about it. Let the revelations seep into your brain.
