Comments: 2  | Leave A Comment

It didn’t help that “Scary Movie 5” got the franchise’s worst reviews. Critics haven’t much cared for any of the “Scary Movie” flicks, but reviews for the latest were almost universally bad.

In limited release, director Terrence Malick’s drama “To the Wonder” had a modest start, taking in $130,000 in 18 theaters for an average of $7,222 a cinema. That compares to a $9,074 average in 3,003 theaters for “42.”

“To the Wonder” stars Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem in a dreamlike, poetic musing on love.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

1. “42,” $27.3 million.

2. “Scary Movie 5,” $15.2 million ($3.5 million international).

3. “The Croods,” $13.2 million ($25.5 million international).

4. “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” $10.8 million ($15.6 million international).

5. “Evil Dead,” $9.5 million ($2.9 million international)..

6. “Jurassic Park” in 3-D, $8.8 million ($1.3 million international).
