I Can Do Bad is seventh consecutive Hollywood low-cost film to open successfully

MUMBAI: Tyler Perry‘s I Can Do Bad All By Myself turned out to be the seventh consecutive low-cost film that opened successfully when it sold an estimated $24 million worth of tickets in the US and Canada last weekend.

Produced at less than $20 million, the movie tops in the box-office chart of US and Canada.

Perry‘s films appeal primarily to black women on whom not many movies in Hollywood are targeted. I Can Do Bad followed that pattern, with the movie attracting 75 per cent of female ticket buyers and 80 per cent African American, it is understood.

Focus Features‘ quirky animated film 9 got off to a healthy start. 9 marks Focus‘ second offbeat animated film this year, after Coraline released in February that had a solid if not stellar $10.9-million opening weekend.

Inglourious Basterds continues to be at No. 3 on its third weekend with $6.5 million domestically. Overseas, the movie grossed $9.4 million and brought its foreign total to $99 million with several major territories including Italy, Spain, Brazil and Mexico left to go.

Warner Bros.‘ horror movie The Final Destination collected $17.3 million from international markets, bringing its foreign total to $55.3 million and worldwide ticket sales after less than three weeks to an impressive $113.5 million.

Summit Entertainment‘s horror film Sorority Row sold $5.3 million worth of tickets over the weekend while Dark Castle Entertainment‘s thriller Whiteout, which stars Kate Beckinsale and was distributed by Warner Bros, grossed $5.1 million.

Both films were disappointments, although the news was worse for Dark Castle because the production cost of Whiteout was $35 million while Sorority Row cost only $12.5 million.
