…uh DUH?? Honestly, unless Avatar or Twilight came out the same weekend as SATC 2, I don’t think this powerhouse could possibly be surpassed at the box office. We all know how hardcore these Sex and the City fans are. I’m not going lie, I grabbed cocktails with my girlfriends and headed into a theater on the Upper Westside to watch the movie at midnight. Even Jake Gyllenhaal‘s washboard abs couldn’t deter me from choosing Sex and the City.
According to the Saturday Box Office Report, Sex and the City 2 grossed $13 million, followed by Shrek Forever After at $11.3 million (thanks to the high price of 3D tickets), and in third was Prince of Persia grossing a measly $10.3 million. SATC 2 already sucked in $14.2 million on its opening day and should have no problem meeting or surpassing the $57 million that the first movie made on its opening weekend. Personally, I liked the first movie much better. This one had too many punch lines and too little New York City.
Rounding out the top five were Iron Man 2 with $4 million and Robin Hood grossing $2.8 million. What movie will you see this holiday weekend?
Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristen Davis & Cynthia Nixon are pictured catching a flight at Heathrow Airport in London.
