The early estimates are in and The Bourne Legacy has come out on top against The Campaign in what was the opening weekend for both films. Universal is estimating that the Matt Damon-less sequel-reboot hybrid titled ‘The Bourne Legacy’ will bring in $40.3 million this weekend. There is good word of mouth for the film but it’s hard to say if this film has staying power against some tough competition in the weeks to come.
Also opening this weekend was ‘The Campaign,’ starring the hilarious Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. Homorazzi cast member Matt wasn’t a huge fan of the film as evident in his review, but it still is estimated to bring in $27.4 million taking the number two spot this weekend.
‘Hope Springs‘, starring Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones also opened this weekend (starting on Thursday for a three day weekend). Find out how this film did as well as the rest in the Top 10 list below. Did you see any movies in theatres this weekend? Tyrell and I watch ‘The Tall Man‘ starring Jessica Biel via iTunes last night and I loved it! I highly recommend it.
