EARLY BOX OFFICE REPORT: ‘SKYLINE’ BOMBS

Uh-oh, bad news for fans of the Sci-Fi “Alien Invasion” genre this weekend, as ‘Skyline’ finishes a distant third to Dreamworks’ CGI-Animated ‘Megamind’ and Tony Scott’s latest train-fetish film, ‘Unstoppable’.

I haven’t seen ‘Skyline’ yet, but I thought the trailers all looked very cool, especially the scenes of thousands of bodies being vacuumed up into huge alien spaceships. However, the reviews have been overwhelmingly negative, (currently garnering only a 10% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes), and it looks like the Strause brothers have another dud on their hands after the dismal Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem. I may have a late review of this film posted on Monday, look out for it.

  1. It didn’t really bomb. It made 11 mil on a total budget of 10 mil. So, its already profitable. Early word from my peeps is that it’s god awful…but with a pedigree like “FROM THE CREATORS OF AVP:RECTUM” what could go wrong?
