Darkness Falls is #1 at the box office

Darkness Falls was #1 on Friday night with an estimated 4.8 million dollars. Do I smell a sequel? For the weekend it'll probably make a total of 10-12 million.

Somehow, I just feel the average movie goer is losing taste in cinema. First Kangaroo Jack, and now Darkness Falls. . . .Kangaroo Jack had a few ok things going for it, from people I know, but I havn't heard a single positive thing about Darkness Falls.

Seeing as how this was so heavily promoted, I'm sure enough people went to see it just because of that ("UPN told me to!").

The numbers aren't pretty on IMDb either. 4.3 Avg.

This is another movie I'll wait for on HBO or Showtime. Pfft.

It's January. Did you expect any numbers to be pretty, besides the box office ones?

Just Married

Kangaroo Jack

Darkness Falls
something tells me that a whole lot of teens and pre teens are frequenting the theater.
The only prerequisite for a killer opening weekend is seemingly targeting this audience with "NEW" pictures.

Kangaroo Jack had a few good things going for it? What? The Kangaroo?
I havent heard anything good about K.J or Darkness Falls.
Most people dont have much taste anymore, I have learned that.

Look it all the good movies out there and they see this crap.

My question is, why cant people make good Horror Movies anymore?
I have to say I did like The Ring and The Others though but those are really " Horror."

Why would they bother with a sequel based on a 12 million box office take? Those numbers would look pathetic in a month or two when we start getting some blockbusters on our hands.

But then again... Final Destination grossed 10 million on it's opening weekend. And we're getting a sequel to that.

I liked FD, and am looking forward to FD2.

Being a huge horror fan, I'd rather have Darkness Fallls at top than Kangaroo Jack, which looks like one of the dumbest movies made, besides the fact that I like Jerry O Conell and Anthony Anderson. I only hope that Final Destination 2 cleans house next weekend since it's obviously the better picture.

Judging by the past couple of weeks we might as well start a Biker Boyz #1 thread for next weekends box office totals right now
