James Franco is going to have two movies out when Spring Breakers hits theaters this weekend. Jason Mewes of Jay and Silent Bob fame returns in K-11, a film about a music executive trapped in the Los Angeles prison system. Star Trek Into Darkeness sold out in many theaters for its Sunday opening this weekend, giving the high profile comedy– The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, starring Jim Carrey and Steve Carrel– and Oz chance to make money on Friday and Saturday.
Last Weekend Oz raked in nearly $80 million. Jack fell to second leaving a huge gap, bringing in only about $10 mil. It will be interesting to see how Oz holds against Star Trek. Jack has likely done all it can. In third place last weekend, Identity thief is likely to fade away against Burt Wonderstone. Niels Arden Oplev’s (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) $30 million American venture took in over five million in its first week and 21 and Over is clinging on to the top five with $5 million.
