Box Office Numbers – Tom Cruise Can’t Save ‘Rock of Ages’

Posted: June 19, 2012 in Movies

You know your movie sucks when Tom Cruise can’t pull in more than $20M opening weekend.  That’s precisely what happened with the musical mishap of Rock of Ages.  Instead, Dreamworks’ Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted and Ridley Scott’s Prometheus took the top two spots for the second week in a row leaving Tom Cruise to pick up the big-haired pieces in the number three spot.

The weekend’s other new release, the Adam Sandler R-rated raunch-fest That’s My Boy with Andy Samberg came in the four spot just missing passing up Tom Cruise, bringing in nearly $13.5M, just one million less than Rock of Ages.  It’s a sad state of affairs for Tom Cruise…you do realize that Mr. Katie Holmes has only had one film since 2006 that he’s starred in that has grossed more than $100M?  This guy used to be absolute money when it came to the box office.  Now?  Unless the film has Mission Impossible in the title you can flip a coin.

The fifth film at the box office this past weekend was the medieval re-telling of the classic Snow White fairytale, Snow White and the Huntsman with $13.2M, barely falling behind both Rock of Ages and That’s My Boy.

Here is the full top 10 list for the box office this past weekend:

*Numbers in millions* (TOTAL)

1) Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted – $34 ($119)

2) Prometheus – $20.7 ($89.3)

3) Rock of Ages – $14.4 (NEW)

5) Snow White and the Huntsman – $13.2 ($122)

6) Men in Black 3 – $10 ($152.7)
