Monday Movie Box Office Recap!

Let’s be honest….this weekend was a bust for box office totals and MTV’s credibility. Bangkok Dangerous, yes seriously, came in number one. Just when I thought we as a nation could not get any dumber, we stoop to a new level and decide to advertise it with the box office totals. Tropic Thunder was bumped to second place after audiences had to find out what was up with Nicolas Cage’s wig. The House Bunny came in a strong third (comparatively). Summer strong holds The Dark Knight and Mamma Mia finished out the top five in fourth and fifth place, respectively. This weekend was the lowest grossing at the box office this summer and I cane understnad why. Movie fatigue and other factors, such as shitastic films can lead to buyers remorse from the American pubic. Or perhaps they were actually intersted in this year's presidential election. Who knows?
