Ted takes the magic out of the hat! I’m Realistic Fish Head. Universal does it again as it outperforms the box office with Magic Mike perfecting his magic. Joining Gizmo from the Gremlins’ movies and Roger Rabbit along with past partners, it’s another way how movies work out between a man and its trusty partner. Gene Scallop on how the bear’s cuteness outperformed the magical ways of Magic Mike.
Gene: It’s been outperformed once again in the box office as Seth McFarlane’s Ted is the winner this week. It’s a win for both Universal and the Family Guy, The Cleveland Show, and American Dad creator as many people watched how the fuzzy bear does when in real life. And we thought this bear was cute and cuddly, but not that I suppose!
As The Amazing Spider Man and Ice Age 4 prepare for their entrance this week, Ted’s been doing very well racking up 53 million smackers, even better than the Marvel Heroes combined! The bear dropped 15% whereas Warner Bros. Magic Mike pulled out 45% suffering the biggest drop. Madea’s under witness protection as Lion gate says on the title as the sassy woman herself goes undercover. The movie dropped 7% much less than Ted. as the 3 movie estimates suddenly decrease. DreamWorks’ People Like Us increased 18% making it the sole winner estimate wise.
That puts this weekend’s numbers to an even stronger estimate than the last outperformance of Madagascar 3, Prometheus, and Brave with 205 million smackers, 5% ahead of 2011’s outperformance.
With the switchover complete, Ted softens 1st, Magic Mike performs next in 2nd, Brave shoots arrows at 3rd, Madea snoops for trouble at 4th, and Madagascar 3 sets course for New York in 5th.
Speaking of Madagascar 3, 20 season 3 episodes of The Penguins of Madagascar are finished with 7 new episodes to go. This might be the finale fans might be waiting for if these 7 episodes conclude the Penguins last missions.
In the Penguins petition, 285 fans have signed up with plenty more coming this week, as it speculates it could determine if this is the end of Penguins’ mania for the show and for Nick itself.
