‘Due Date’ leads Tuesday Box Office


078840H1.jpgFirst Place – Warner Bros.’ ‘Due Date’ – A Tuesday gross of $2.5 million gives the buddy road trip style film starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis a five day total of $37.5 million.  The film has earned $58.8 million worldwide.

Second Place – Paramount/D’works’ ‘Megamind’ –  $1.87 for Tuesday gives this family favorite a strong mid-week gross despite kids being in school.  A huge debut weekend of $46 million and a total domestic gross pushing $50 million after five days gives the film an impressive start.  The film has earned $72.2 million worldwide.

Third Place – Lionsgate’s ‘For Colored Girls’ – Tyler Perry continues his solid box office track record with a $1 million Tuesday gross.  With the atypical (for Perry) R-rating and dramatic subtext, the film’s performance is impressive.  Its five day domestic total is $21.7 million.

Stanley Kubrick is a God even though like Orson Welles’ 'Citizen Kane, his '2001: A Space Odyssey' is overrated but still brilliant!
