Projections: The Forecast Is Still ‘Cloudy’

18 Jan, 2010 By: Kelly Burner


Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs


A number of middle-of-the-line theatrical releases came out on disc Jan. 12.  

Lionsgate released the latest picture from Tyler Perry, I Can Do Bad All by Myself, which earned nearly $52 million in domestic box office revenue. Sony Pictures came out with the sequel to the Halloween remake ($33 million), from director Rob Zombie, and Moon ($5 million), a sci-fi flick starring Sam Rockwell and Kevin Spacey. Fox released its remake of the 1980 musical Fame, which raked in just more than $22 million, and Summit came out with the action flick The Hurt Locker ($12.7 million).

The two titles that stand out from the rest as far as home entertainment appeal are I Can Do Bad All By Myself and Halloween II. The former may be able to snag the top renting position away from holdover Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, but is unlikely to become the top-selling title for the week. Halloween II should debut at No. 5 on both the top sellers’ and top renters’ charts.
