It seems I may have been the only one who did not see "The Hangover 2" this weekend as it set a comedy box office record bringing in $105 million being made. It now makes it the highest grossing opening for a comedy film ever.
The box office took in $280 million and "The Hangover 2" since it's Thursday opening, has made $134 million.
Kung-Fu Panda 2, which opened this weekend as well, took in $66 million. 3rd place was Pirates 4 with 50 million.
I cannot remember the last time a 3rd place movie took in $50 million dollars.
Did any YOU see "The Hangover 2" this weekend? What did YOU think?-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: The Hangover Lingers
We were the only ones in Hollywood this was going to be one of the best movies of 2009. What we did not know is that it would break a box office record that has stood for 25 years.
The Hangover is now the highest grossing rated R movie in movie history, surpassing Eddie Murphy's Beverly Hills Cop's 25 year run at the top. The Hangover has made $235 million since its' release less than 2 months ago.
We also just found out last week that The Hangover 2 will be in theatres 2011 on Memorial Day weekend.
Congrats to the writers, the cast, and the director on the success of The Hangover. Wonder how or if you will top the original, but for now, congrats on breaking a tremendous record.-Dr.FB
The Hangover sequel will start shooting next year and will be released Memorial Day 2011.
Smart move. People are already craving for the sequel. 2 years will give us plenty of time to crave it even more and not over-saturate the movie audience.-Dr.FB
