4. The Monuments Men (Sony) Week 2 - Last weekend #2
$15,000,000 (-32%) in 3,083 theaters (unchanged); PSA: $4,865; Cumulative: $43,670,000
Continuing to perform above expectations for the second week, and boosted by the holiday weekend, George Clooney's World War II art-heist caper is showing some strength, particularly from adults who have moved on from the multiple Oscar nominees in release. As disappointing as its reviews were, the appeal of the cast (Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon and others joining Clooney), this already is the biggest grossing of its director's films.
Monuments Men took off with another $8.9M this weekend from 2,365 screens. The UK market was the hot spot for the film, having grossed $2.9M and taking the No. 2 spot behind The Lego Movie. The George Clooney production of Men will open in 30 more markets next weekend via Fox International. It’s in 19 markets currently.
