If it's crap ... We'll tell you
1. Toy Story 3
Total domestic gross so far: $394,148,000
Total foreign gross so far: $436,400,000
There's not much I can say about this amazing film that everyone hasn't already said. I knew this was going be successful, but I had no idea Toy Story 3 made so much money overseas. Nearly half a billion dollars. Compared to how much money other movies have been making this year, that is truly impressive. Not surprising, but still impressive.
2. Alice in Wonderland (2010)
Total domestic gross so far: $334,191,110
Total foreign gross so far: $690,105,649
I'm still surprised how much bank this made. I didn't hate Alice in Wonderland, but I sure as hell didn't love. I probably wouldn't have seen it if my older brother didn't offer to take me to see it for my birthday (he fell asleep the first time he saw, and he wanted to see it on IMAX, too bad he fell asleep again. He could've saved some money). I still can't understand how this movie was so big. Sure it's a Tim Burton movie, but it's the same as all of his other movies.
3. Iron Man 2
Total domestic gross: $311,612,666
Total foreign gross: $309,602,000
Even though it made it's money back, Iron Man 2 was still a failure, not only to the studio, but to some of the fans also. I enjoyed the first much more than this one. I still liked IM2, I just didn't like the fact that this one is an Avengers movie more than an Iron Man movie, and that the final fight wasn't much of a fight. The lasers in his wrists were cool though.
4. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Total domestic gross: $291,552,000
Total foreign gross: $356,700,000
......some things are better left unsaid. All I can say is that I didn't see it, and didn't want to see it.
5. Shrek Forever After
Total domestic gross: $236,119,800
Total foreign gross: $409,913,965
Another one I didn't see, and had no intentions of seeing. The first two were great, but after the crappy third one and seeing Shrek's green face all over the damn place I was done with Shrek. I heard this one was decent though. Here's hoping this is truly the final chapter.
Well, that'll about do it for this part. Feel free to comment on not only my poor blogging skills, but the films also. And please, don't start any b.s. about Twilight. If you do feel the need to say something negative about it, don't be a douche bag. Part 2 will be up later tonight or tomorrow. Later days!
