In 1984, the world learned about the heroic staff of catching ghosts, poltergeists and other services that literally save humanity and the city of New York from the ancient Sumerian god. The film is called simply – “Ghostbusters”, took off his Ivan Raytmen (future author of “Twins,” “Beethoven” and another heap of comedies varying degrees of success), and starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis. The movie became the most cash for the year (almost $ 300 million in fees where there is “Terminator”), five years later, there was also a sequel, shot around on the same subject and with the same actors (revenue – $ 215 million). They wanted to shoot, and the third part, but then rested Murray, to whom be the hunter just tired; 25 years, he has destroyed his options sent by scripts and refused to talk about ghosts with anyone, especially with Raytmanom. He eventually decided to dispense with intractable actor. The third part of “Ghostbusters” was essentially reboot the entire franchise – all starring in the new film, played by women. Not that it helped.
Over the weekend from 15 to 17 July Women’s “Ghostbusters” earned US $ 46 million box office, which was only enough for second place . at the box office
in fact, the appearance of the female version of Ghostbusters Now it is quite logical; perhaps more logical would be the only film with the composition of the aged classic characters – which, of course, impossible (Ramis, died in February 2014). Times have changed, the film company (especially Hollywood) all the forces trying to create female characters, and a good base (and “Ghostbusters” – a film at least a cult) can only help in this promotion. Putting the new “Hunters” called Paul Feig, who is famous for it female comedies ( “Bridesmaids,” “The Heat,” “Spy”), and the main roles were called actresses who in these comedies and starring Melissa McCarthy and Christine Wiig. Two roles in the four hunters took the not so famous Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones from the team of the show Saturday Night Live. But the role of the Office of the Secretary was invited Chris Hemsworth (Thor from Marvel kinovselennoy), which, surprisingly, agreed.
Out of the film was followed by various characters, mostly negative. Trailer has received the largest number among dizlaykov on YouTube movie clips, new criticism “Hunters” restrained praise (73% “fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes), and even the audience put it a rating B +. However, 46 million starting fees – it is still very little for the picture, which is the production cost of $ 144 million; in the US box office, “hunters” can collect about $ 150 million, and the rest they need to travel the world, which will have to try very hard. The Russian premiere will take place at the end of July.
The first place retained the cartoon “The Secret Life of animals”. Another work of the creators of “Despicable Me” and “Minions” for two weeks rent earned $ 253.9 million and is fully paid for its small ($ 75 million) budget.
Over the past weekend “Secret life” gathered in the US $ 50.5 million
The third place was taken by David Yates film “Tarzan: The Legend.” – one of the main losers of the year. With blockbuster budget ($ 180 million) blockbuster picture and did not, and now it is a worldwide revenue of only $ 193.6 million, of which $ 11.1 million has brought the past weekend the US
The fourth place. – in another cartoon, which has already had to fly out of the top 5, if the American hire new items would be just a little more successful. “Finding Dory” – the sequel to the highly successful Pixar film “Finding Nemo” – earned for five weeks in theaters smaller than the original ($ 721.7 million versus $ 936.7 million in “Nemo”), but it is trying very hard to catch up.
This weekend in the United States brought the fish Dory another $ 11 million.
The adult comedy “Wedding intoxication” with Zac Efron and Adam Devine starring is no expectation is not justified. Over the weekend the film grossed $ 7.5 million, which helped him to stay in the top five, but the global fees now account for only $ 38 million, and they are not even enough for it to recoup slim 33 millionth budget.
