Projections: Post Valentine’s Day Viewers Want Action

22 Feb, 2010 By: Kelly Burner



With Valentine’s Day past and romance drifting away, consumers are ready for a thrilling actioner to blow away their rose-colored glasses.

That’s why the Jamie Foxx/Gerard Butler thriller Law Abiding Citizen is perfectly poised to explode into first place on the national top sellers and rentals charts. Released by Anchor Bay Feb. 16, Law Abiding Citizen raked in more than $73 million in domestic theaters alone.

Other films that streeted during the week ended Feb. 21 include the Sony Pictures biopic Coco Before Chanel ($6 million), which chronicles the rise to superstardom of one of the most notorious fashion designers of all time, and Lionsgate’s documentary Good Hair ($4 million), in which comedian Chris Rock investigates the African-American obsession with “good” hair.
