Ultimatum Weekend Box Office

I'm in total shock $69.28 million!! :D Just outstanding! Everyone involved in Ultimatum must be over the moon. Only The Simpsons has done better this year.

It's been reviewed in Empire (UK version) and was given the maximum 5 stars and a fantastic review. I agreed with every word. I don't know how to link it to your site Felicity, but maybe someone else can.

Steve Wright on Radio 2 has just mentioned that Forbes article just as I started to type this.

I've also got 3 of his 5 favourite books for 2006 too. Marcia

Re: Ultimatum Weekend Box Office

Thanks Marcia, Kaylinne posted the whole Empire review in a posting from last week.

I've only got 2 of the 5.

Ashamed I have none of the 5 - but at least I know what to buy when I've finished Harry Potter ;-)

Forgive my ignorance - is €69 million for an opening weekend good?

Re: Ultimatum Weekend Box Office

Look at the earlier posts or comments. US$69 million doesn't beat Spiderman or the year's biggest films, but Matt's previous best opening was Supremacy with $52 million, and that was any spy film (including Bond's) highest opening ever. It's a great opening, and expectations were that it would make mid$55-60 million, which would still have been great.

As an indication, the opening day (Friday) was the studio Universal's highest opening day figure ever, and the $ actually increased on Saturday.
