|Shoulda called it “D.O.A.”|
But The Dilemma? That was dead on arrival, delivering a $20 million opening weekend in North America—which is so surprising it’s nearly shocking, considering it was headlined by Vince Vaughn and Kevin James, both of whom have been on winning streaks as of late, consistently delivering $30–$40 million opening weekends on their last five movies.
Just like last weekend, though True Grit rumbled along for a $13 million weekend, to a cumulative of $148 million. This will be Jeff Bridges highest grossing headliner movie ever (he played the villain in Iron Man, where Robert Downey, jr., was the draw)—nice! Oscar, then mullah.
Final numbers come out in the evening—will update as they come out.
