The Weekend Winner is a weekly update here on Caught on Set. Every Monday we will post pictures from the set of the movie that wins the box office battle over the weekend.
There were no surprises at the box office this weekend as The Amazing Spider-Man continued it's strong start over the weekend by bringing in $65 million. The comic book based film starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone pushed it's total gross to $140 million. The one movie that surprised me over the weekend was Savages, which grossed just over $16 million to come in 4th. I thought that movie, with the cast that it has, would fare much better than a $6,000 average per screen. From Boxofficemojo.com:
1 The Amazing Spider-Man $65,000,000
2 Ted $32,593,000
3 Brave $20,162,000
4 Savages $16,162,000
5 Magic Mike $15,610,000
Ted and Brave are still holding on strong in it's second and third week, respectively, in release. Magic Mike having another strong weekend just goes to show that all you ladies out there love strippers also. The movie about male "dancers" has grossed over $70 million in two weeks, which is 10 times more than the estimated budget of $7 million. Sex sells, no matter who you are selling too.
