A Fucking Cat Presents: Weekend Box Office Roundup



Rio De Dinero
By Sammy Miller, Guest Contributor

A goddamn parrot won the box office this weekend, proving once and for all that kids will literally watch anything. While I can’t imagine that RIO any more trite than last weekend’s Hop, it still goes to show that Spring is the absolute worst time of year for adult moviegoers. So a big congrats to animators Blue Sky and studio 20th Century Fox, for raking in $40MM of our hard earned dollars that we simply could not think of anything better to do with over the weekend.

There was little 90’s nostalgia in the air, with Scream 4 bringing in less than $20MM. Hopefully we’re done with this franchise once and for all, that is, unless ghost face is planning on stalking Neve Campbell throughout her retirement home. God help us if her Party of Five royalty checks ever dry up.

Atlas Shrugged Part 1’s limited release did respectably per screening, but barely scratched the surface with a measly $1.6MM. If they can’t muster up enough interest for a larger release, I see Part 2 going straight to DVD. Which might not be such a bad thing… this whole production felt very “small screen” from day one.

Well, better run – I’m having my cat condo re-carpeted, and I can’t wait to sink my claws into the new Berber. Ciao for now.
