Weekend Box Office: '21 Jump Street' #1 With $35M, 'John Carter' Collapses

 DHD:

Welcome to another weekend of strong box office. numbers for the #1 movie, Sony Pictures/MGM co-production’ 21 Jump Street, showed an opening of $13M Friday and $35M weekend from 3,121 theaters. “Great news for Jump Street as it keeps growing as the night goes on,” a Sony exec told me last night. Friday’s number includes the $700K Friday midnights from 598 theaters. Overall, nice haul for the R-rated laugher whose budget was only around $45M. What’s especially interesting here is that these remakes of popular TV shows rarely work on the big screen. …
