The weekend came and went and with that, The Thing finally debuted in theaters. Critics didn’t like it much, but who cares? The Thing debuted at #3, which I kind of was expecting it to land there given the other two films it was competing against. But anyway, here’s how much the top 3 films made over the three-day weekend.
1. Real Steel $16,304,000
2. Footloose (2011) $16,100,000
3. The Thing (2011) $8,700,000
As I’ve already said, the film is really good so whether you’re a fan of Carpenter’s version, see it. Hopefully it’ll do better next week. 😉
