It definitely had a better cast than Escape from Planet Earth, but I’m sure no one at Dreamworks thought that The Croods would win the weekend. However, if you look at the numbers, Olympus Has Fallen is the true winner of the weekend. It grossed nearly half its budget already, where as The Croods still has a long way to go for even those numbers.

Box Office Mojo had this to report: “In second place, Olympus Has Fallen exceeded even the most generous expectations with an impressive $30.5 million debut. That's the top action movie opening so far in 2013 ahead of A Good Day to Die Hard ($24.8 million); it's also more than the combined debuts of Parker, The Last Stand, Dead Man Down and Bullet to the Head. Finally, Olympus Has Fallen is now director Antoine Fuqua's highest opener ahead of Training Day ($22.6 million), a past hit that was a major selling point in the marketing”. Ray Subers

This week... well let’s hope a 3D upgrade and some re-shoots are worth the wait. Will it be Yo Joe or oh no?
