We’re The Millers, which hasn’t been embraced by critics (only 39% on Rotten Tomatoes) had a really strong first day, pulling in 6.8M to easily take first place. This figure does include some box office from the Tuesday night opening, but is still a strong opening. We’re The Millers has also received an A- cinemascore from audiences, which will help give it legs over the weekend.
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters also opened on Wednesday, and grabbed an impressive 5.4M. With only 33% positive on Rotten Tomatoes, the audiences have spoken again and declared that Percy is a B+. With the two stronger movies opening tomorrow, this is going to be a very crowded box office weekend. It is likely all four films will break 20M this weekend, but can they all break 30? Elysium and Planes open tomorrow.
