May 10-12 Box Office Results

The Great Gatsby really blew away expectations by grossing over $50 million in its opening. I think it is great, so it deserves to be seen. No matter how well it did, Iron Man 3 beat it by about $22 million in its second weekend. Peeples was a flop, and the name Tyler Perry didn’t attract many people this time around. Good thing, too, because the movie sucked! Anyway, here’s how the top 10 performed, and how I did with predicting everything. Click on the title if you missed any of my reviews!
