Cult moviemakers Robert Rodriguez
and Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse
double bill failed to deliver at the box office over the Easter weekend - bringing in a lacklustre $11.6 million to finish fourth.
The project, which features Rodriguez's Planet Terror
and Tarantino's Death Proof
, was expected to debut at number one, but experts claim the three-hours-plus running time of the films put many fans off. Grindhouse was expected to make $20 million in its opening weekend, but fell well short.
Ice skating comedy Blades Of Glory
kept the top spot for a second week, with an estimated $23 million take, while futuristic animated movie Meet The Robinsons
stayed at number two in its second weekend on release with $17 million.
