No ‘Kick Ass’ blockbusters this weekend

There was no ‘ass kicking’ going on in the box office as all the top 5 movies finished within a few million of each other. Taking the number one spot was ‘Dragon’ which has been in release for 4 weeks. The highly anticipated comic book adaptation, Kick Ass, had a very disappointing opening by not even reaching the $20 million mark. It’s possible with word of mouth and a slow month, it will catch up in the weeks to come. Death at a Funeral’s poor opening was no laughing matter either for the ‘black’ (as in satirizing the topic of death) comedy. Looks like we are all saving our dollars for Ironman 2 in May.
