According to boxofficemojo.com, "Men In Black II" made over $19 million yesterday in its first day. It was the third highest opening for a Wednesday ever, behind "Star Wars Episode I", and "Jurassic Park III". Among other opening movies, "Like Mike" made $4 million, and "Powerpuff Girls" made over $1 million.

Just as a warning to anyone who didn't go see it - Men In Black II is *horrible*. And I liked the first one.

Yeah any movie starring Little Bowwow needs to be nuked. God I hate rappers in real life. Jesus use your own real fucking name especially if it is totaly gay like LBW.

"Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones captured another $17.1M in ticket sales at the North American box office for Men in Black 2 on Thursday, the Fourth of July, raising its two-day gross to a stellar $36.1M. Down just 10% from its $19M opening day, the Sony release continued its dominance of the marketplace and is shooting to score a five-day holiday bow in the vicinity of $100M. Among other new releases this weekend, Fox's Like Mike grossed $3.1M on Thursday, its second day of release, pushing its two-day tally to $7.1M. Warner Bros. took in $1M for The Powerpuff Girls raising its two-day sum to a modest $2.5M"

Were all the good jokes in the commercials, like the first one? Because I was definitely getting that vibe off it.

Geez, I wonder why Powerpuff is doing so badly. I thought that'd do very well.

It's absolutely disgusting and sad that Like Mike is making 3 times more money then something as smart and great like the PowerPuff Girls.

MIB2 wasn't all *that* bad. Not as good as the first, but sequels usually aren't. Definitely more about the aliens and the special effects than the story.

Tommy Lee Jones is still the man, though. Him and the guy who played the Tick in the live-action series kept it from "blah" territory into something that was at least pleasantly entertaining.

One of the reasons why the Powerpuff Girls isn't doing good is because most theaters stop showing the movie after 9:00. That and its rated PG because of "Fantasy Violence."

I guess Lil Romeo will have his own movie next.

There are a couple theaters here (being Virginia Beach/Norfolk) that are only showing it three times and stopping at 3:00. I wanted to go after work, but it was too late.

The kind of world where "Scooby Doo" is making money hand over fist. A world gone very mad indeed.

The Powerpuff Girls movie will make most likely make a killing when released on video, just like most every other kids movie.

Scooby Doo has a little more of a history and fan base than the Powerpuff Girls, I would venture to say.

And it had a bit more of an advertising budget...

I saw absolutely NO advertising for the PPG movie on any non-timewarner channel. And living with a seven and nine year-old, I tend to see a lot of kids shows that could've advertised on.

I saw MIB2 and liked it.

It was better than Lilo and Stitch.

I thought MIB2 was great. Well, maybe not great, but it was really good. And hilarous.

Tomorrow before work, I'm seeing Men In Black 2 and Scooby Doo. Both are supposed to be pretty bad. I don't care, though. I like movies...even bad movies.

On a side note, I learned how to "close down" a screen at the movie theatre last night when I closed. It's remarkably easy.

from www.toonzone.net:

"The box office estimates are in, and it's no surprise to find Men In Black 2 on top of the top ten!

Men In Black 2 rode the wave to bocxglory, easily setting a weekend record. Men In Black 2 beat's the previous record set by Independence Day, which grossed $85 million over the five day weekend when it was released in 1996. Meanwhile, another muchly anticipated movie stumbled out of the gate. The much hyped The Powerpuff Girls Movie was lost in the weekend shuffle, bringin in a meager $6.1 million over the 5 day weekend, much lower than expectations. Some box office analysts predicted the movie would open to as much as $25 million over the five day. Even the massive hype on Cartoon Network and Kids'WB! couldn't bring the series healthy box office receipts.

For interests sake, below is the top ten for this past weekend.

1. Men In Black 2 - $54,100,000 ($90,000,000)
2. Mr. Deeds - $18,800,000 ($74,000,000)
3. Like Mike - $13,050,000 ($20,050,000)
4. Lilo & Stitch - $12,720,000 ($103,100,000)
5. Minority Report - $12,400,000 ($96,810,000)
6. The Bourne Identity - $9,110,000 ($89,100,000)
7. Scooby-Doo - $7,030,000 (137,500,000)
8. The Sum of All Fears - $3,750,000 ($111,900,000)
9. The Powerpuff Girls Movie - $3,560,000 ($6,100,000)
10. Divine Secret of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood - $2,850,000 ($61,000,000)

Poor PPG.

there were a few ads on TV here...not enough to really show up on the radar, so to speak.

Maybe the film company is hoping for word of mouth publicity.
