Grown Ups 2 looks like it might end up beating Pacific Rim at the box office. Really? Utter comedy is the way to go? Who wants to watch this shit?

http://comicbook.com/blog/2013/07/13/bo ... ening-day/

However, Grown-Ups 2 roared back on Friday. According to projections from Deadline, Grown-Ups 2 will win Friday with $16.5 million and is on track to win the weekend with $46 million. Despicable Me 2 looks to take second place with $15 million and finish the weekend with $47 million. And Pacific Rim looks to take third place with $13.5 million on Friday and a projected $37 million for the weekend. Of course with numbers that close, it’s still anybody’s ballgame, and we could still have a surprise finish when all the numbers are official.

Revised: Like we warned, with numbers this close, things can change. Now that more official numbers are in, Grown-Ups 2 is still in first place on Friday with $16.3 million. However, Pacific Rim has moved into second place with $14.6 million, and Despicable Me 2 has dropped into third place with $13.4 million. These new numbers include the Thursday late shows in Friday’s totals.

All three films are exceeding early expectations and look to drive a huge increase at the box office over last year. Even though Grown-Ups 2 only has a 7% approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a 90% liked it rating from audiences. Many were calling for Pacific Rim to be a megaflop, but it’s actually drawing a respectable box office for a non-sequel original property. Pacific Rim also looks to possibly fair even stronger at the international box office than the domestic box office. And Despicable Me 2 is proving it wasn’t a one weekend wonder at the box office.

Word of Mouth will push Pacific Rim much higher than expectations, I bet.

Saw it today, it was OK but not great. The characters were a bit predictable and cliche, but the fights were fun and it had some funny moments.

Absolutely fucking loved it! I could watch it all again right now! Ron Pearlman was fantastice, Charlie Hunnam was stellar, the action scenes were so intense and so breath takingly beautiful!! Kaiju's were legit scary badass looking creatures straight out of a nightmare! Kudos to everyone involved this is my favorite movie of the Summer of 2013 hands down!

Even so, it was a hundred times better than the normal Hollywood crap that it churns out every summer. Case in point, the movie that's "beating" it. :smt011

I loved it. It was everything a big budget summer blockbuster should be. Fun cast (esp. Perlman 8) & Elba) and not too melodtamatic.
I have no idea how they could do a sequel, but I would be down for that.
Or even a prequel. (Moar monsters vs robots plz)

And thumbs up to Zechs for heads up on mid credit bit!

I thought it was pretty good, but not a home run.

Interesting to read.
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

So... who's "The Spektre" of this movie? :smt102



I tired watching Atlantic Rim last night, since it was on tv..... I want that time back. I bailed but I still really deserve that 15 minutes back.
