You Aren’t Watching the Watchmen

This weekends box office totals are in (March 27’th-29’th) and the $150 mil big budget adaptation of Alan Moore’s graphic novel is not doing so hot. In its 4’th week out the grand total is only $163,927,282 worldwide. Doesn’t appear to be making that money back anytime soon. Then again, it was a niche movie.

Animated flick Monsters vs. Aliens nabbed the top spot this week with a strong debut of $58.2 million followed in second by The Haunting in Connecticut with $23.01 mil. Nicolas Cage’s numbers extravaganza Knowing had a good second week coming in at third with another $14.7 mil added to its total. Here’s the rest of the chart (via Box Office Mojo).
