Box office news "Lottery Ticket"


The aging warriors of 'The Expendables' fended off five new challengers to maintain the No. 1 spot at the box office for a second week in a row. Of the five newcomers, only 'Vampires Suck' and 'Lottery Ticket' met pre-release expectations.

Even with the addition of 'Piranha 3D' this week, 'Expendables' remained the pulpy thrill machine of choice for moviegoers, earning another $16.5 million, according to studio estimates. Word of mouth for Sylvester Stallone's action hit remained strong, leading to an estimated 10-day total of $64.9 million.

'Vampires Suck' opened at No. 2 as the weekend's top comedy. The 'Twilight' spoof opened wide, on 3,233 screens, taking in an estimated $12.2 million from Friday to Sunday. Added to the two extra days of cash it earned by opening on Wednesday, the movie's total take so far is $18.6 million.

'Vampires' edged out last week's second-place movie, 'Eat Pray Love,' by just $200,000. Coming in third, the Julia Roberts travelogue earned an estimated $12.0 million, for a two-weekend take of $47.1 million.

'Lottery Ticket,' opening in fourth place, did better than expected, earning an estimated $11.1 million. The smallest of the five major new releases this week, opening on just 1,973 screens, the comedy also had the best per-screen average ($5,639) among this week's wide releases.

It says a lot that a film- that didn't have as big a budget as the others it went up against AND showed on fewer screens- surpassed expectations. I don't know you but I am you..so I can certainly appreciate what you're doing for your people..not only culturally but for your supporters as well. Well done..much more in store thru prayer. Bless

I'm not even gonna lie, I want to see vampires suck, but theres no way in the world I would pay to see it, esp NOT over your movie! LOTTERY TICKET WAS GREAT! I saw it at 12:45 on friday; it would've been earlier but I actually went to get my hair done first! As if you would see me looking fly in the DARK! haha One of my fav parts was actually the roof, I know you're wondering why everybody likes that scene...it shows the range! It's a serious like oscar worthy moment in a comedy! LOVE IT! My mom loved your acrobats in the train scene! She was too tickled, so that made me laugh. I loved the part when you were talking about the $5,000 nikes and the part where dude pulled the trigger on lorenzo! LOL Hope I didnt ruin any parts for anybody, I shouldn't have, you all shouldve seen it like 3 times by now! Congrats, lets hope those #'s INCREASE as the days go on! I LOVE YOU! <3
