#1 in June 10's Weekend's Box-Office had nothing to do with a sequel, prequel, or a remake. Instead, it was the sense of mystery surrounding "Super 8" that may have contributed to its opening in first place: bringing in $37 million this weekend, and $38 million overall (including Thursday night sneak peeks).
Whether this is seen as a successful opening or not, you have to give credit to filmmakers JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg for presenting the film in their own way: what with Abrams' insistence on never exposing the "Super 8" creature to audiences and the aura of mystery that has surrounded the film since the beginning.
Check out "Super 8"'s trailer below:
"Super 8" beat out last weekend's #1, "X-Men: First Class," which earned another $25 million, almost reaching the $100 million mark with an overall gross of $98.9 million.
"The Hangover Part 2" is definitely still holding strong at the box-office, coming in at #3 and earning another $18.5 million. This brings the sequel's overall gross to over $200 million ($217 million). The comedy is now the largest grossing film of 2011. "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" also crossed the $200 million mark this weekend ($209 million), coming in at #5 and earning $10.8 million.
A not-so-great opening occurred with "Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer," which debuted at #7 and brought in just $6.27 million.
