Weekend Boxoffice Report – July 2nd-4th

This Holiday weekend clearly saw a whole lot of people going to see movies, and with launches like Twilight Eclipse and the much anticipated The Last Airbender. Top that off with a strong showing from Toy Story 3 and we have a hit weekend!

Boxoffice Mojo has the estimates

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – $69,000,000 – Opening
The Last Airbender – $40,650,000 – Opening
Toy Story 3 – $30,174,000 – 3wks
Grown Ups – $18,500,000 – 2wks
Knight & Day – $10,200,000 – 2wks

Regardless of the reviews, Twilight was going to hit the top spot without a doubt.

I didn’t get a chance to hit up The Last Airbender, but the buzz is not good.

And I had no doubt that Toy Story would still be in the top 5, but surprised after the negative buzz about Airbender that it managed to edge it out.

Grown Ups and Knight and Day make the top fringe adult selections this week for those not dragging around anklebiters who likely have seen those family friendly films already if they were going to.

What did you see on this past holiday weekend?
