‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ Comes up Short (Box Office Results)

Jack the Giant Slayer comes up small with an opening weekend of $27.2 million, noticeably lower than last March’s box office bomb, John Carter, that opened to $30.2 million. 21 and Over also disappointed with an $8.75 million opening ($12.3 million lower than Project X‘s opening), The Last Exorcism II disappointed with a $7.73 million opening ($12.63 million off of its predecessor’s opening), and Phantom earned an awful $508, 000 at 1118 theaters. The first-time RCR distribution company was even late with their numbers, and the advertising campaign seemed non-existent, so I don’t see them making it well in this industry.
