Owen Wilson‘s raunchy male buddy comedy Hall Pass failed to take in as much as studio execs hoped this week with only a $13.4 million gross this weekend behind the 3-week old Gnomeo and Juliet.
The movie, about two men giving a week off from marriage by their wives, also stars Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate. However, predictions were more in the $20 million range for the movie, which just premiered in Australia this weekend.
Warner Bros. Domestic Distribution President Dan Fellman said however that the film “had a nice weekend” and will probably catch up by next weekend, after Oscar madness has ended. At least Wilson, pictured at Sydney Int’l Airport, has some good news to be excited about, his now one month-old baby boy.
