The Losers could have been a fun little action flick but instead most of the action-filled scenes are kind of mundane and the story itself isn’t very interesting. I guess those who are a fan of the comic book might enjoy the film for what it is, but I had hoped that instead of a toned down PG-13 flick, we could’ve instead gotten something similar to Wanted, a film that goes all-out with its sex and violence and thus provided a unique entertainment experience.

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief is truly a phenomenal movie that should be enjoyed by anyone who in the slightest likes science fiction in films today. The movie provides both entertainment and education mixed into one great flick that is for both kids and adults.

Here are the preliminary box office numbers for the weekend of July 25th to the 27th:

  1. Toy Story 3 – $59.0m (-46.5%) / $226.6m
  2. Grown Ups – $41.0m (new) / $41.0m
  3. Knight & Day – $20.5m (new) / $27.8m
  4. The Karate Kid – $15.4m (-48.5%) / $135.6m
  5. The A-Team – $6.0m (-58.3%) / $62.8m

….

10. Jonah Hex – $1.6m (-70.3%) / $9.1m

Personal Thoughts:
Ouch for Jonah Hex, at this point Warner must be praying that Saint Christopher Nolan comes through for them again after he made 2008 a year to remember after The Dark Knight‘s massive box office. I’m certain Inception won’t be that big, but it certainly has the possibility of breaking out, but seeing how this summer has been, I’d be surprised to see it make it past even Batman Begin‘s $205 million domestic take. Will it follow Summer 2010’s trend or be next to Toy Story 3 as a breakout? Good news for Warner is, they’ve got part 1 of the final Harry Potter movie coming this November…
