Box Office Report – Valentine’s Day Feels the Love

Romance was in the air – and in theaters – over the extended Valentine’s Day/Presidents Day holiday weekend. Valentine’s Day, the romantic comedy with dozens of stars, easily trounced the competition, setting the record for Presidents Day weekend as it took over first place from Dear John. The Garry Marshall-helmed film now holds the record for the biggest Presidents Day weekend, dethroning the champ Ghost Rider. And due toValentine’s DayPercy Jackson and The Wolfman‘s strong opening numbers, this Presidents Day weekend is now the biggest on record.

Top 10 Films for the 4-Day Weekend Ending February 15, 2010
1) Valentine’s Day – $63,135,312
2) Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief – $38,661,634
3) The Wolfman – $35,555,065
4) Avatar – $28,782,849
5) Dear John – $18,200,188
6) Tooth Fairy – $8,005,767
7) From Paris with Love – $6,352,780
8) Edge of Darkness – $5,570,476
9) Crazy Heart – $4,982,062
10) When in Rome – $4,277,925
The studios pretty much all skipped this weekend, leaving just Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest outing as the weekend’s only wide release. I guess Scorsese scared everyone away…

  • Variety‘s reporting Disney’s prepping another high school movie, this time one that won’t involve singing but might involve a little dancing (since prom night is the centerpiece of the plot). According to Variety, Disney’s Prom will follow a group of teens as they get ready for their school’s dance. But you probably figured that out from the title, didn’t you?

    Joe Nussbaum, director of 2004’s Sleepover starring Mika Boorem and Alexa Vega and 2007’s Sydney White with Amanda Bynes and Sara Paxton, is set to direct from a script by first-time feature film screenwriter Katie Wech. There’s no word yet on when Disney expects production to begin or who will star in the teen-centric film
