As much as I enjoyed Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, I’m overwhelmingly excited that this will probably be the final post regarding the film, ‘cept when Twentieth Century Fox announces the sequel.
We haven’t done a box officie report in quite some time, and that’s mostly because horror has not been swimming in the green. And while Prometheus is technically sci-fi, it is based in the horror subgenre, and a prequel to Scott’s Alien. It more than warranted the several hundred posts here on Bloody.
Enough spinning the wheels; Fox’s sci-fi epic, starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris and Guy Pearce, took the #2 box office spot with an estimated $50 million opening, an incredible weekend for an R-rated film. It should also be noted that it has a better per screen average than Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, the number 1 movie in America, and played in a thousand less theaters. It’s “technically” the winner. In addition, upon doing some research, Prometheus has already toppled $141 million worldwide. This is considered a success, and a sequel is expected.
For those of you who saw the movie this weekend, join other Bloody readers by writing your own review to tell us all what YOU thought!
