    LA Times Metion of Soul Surfer's Box Office Success :)

    Great mention by LA Times re: the success of Soul Surfer this weekend. Apparently they made the whole film for 18 million, which means they made almost all their money back in one weekend! One more weekend and they will break even, and then score a nice profit.....all before International Release and DVD sales. YAY!

    Hanna got scores of C+ from movie goers-- and Soul Surfer got a rare A+! yay!

    Box Office: Russell Brand's 'Hop' leaps way over his new film, 'Arthur' [Updated] | Company Town | Los Angeles Times

    "Hanna," which stars Saoirse Ronan as a teenage girl raised in the wilderness who is trained to be an assassin, drew a younger audience, 64% of whom were younger than 35. The film played well to a diverse crowd in both big cities and small towns, but those who saw the film did not love it. Audiences gave the film an average grade of C-plus, indicating it could disappear from theaters quickly due to bad word-of-mouth

    But audiences seemed enamored with "Soul Surfer," giving it a rare A-plus. The movie, which is being distributed by Sony Pictures’ TriStar label and marketed by the studio's faith-based division Affirm Films and FilmDistrict, was made for $18 million. That means the film is off to a solid start, especially considering the teenage girls who propelled it to success are on spring break over the next few weeks.

    Actually Tee, you haven't included marketing expenses, which can double the production costs. The movie may or may not be profitable, but it certainly won't turn gold next weekend.

    ^ Actually, I don't think they were expecting to make even $10. I think they were expecting to make about $7 million and were hoping to make $10 million at the high end.

    Just for fun I thought we would compare the opening weekend for Narnia ($24,005,069) and the opening weeked for Soul Sufer ($11,100,000).
