The Hangover 2 Sets Box Office Records
It didn't take long for The Hangover Part 2 to break some box office records. The R-rated sequel to 2009's surprise hit The Hangover grossed $31.7 million in just its first day in release, and set a few new records in the process.
The Hangover 2 can now claim the top spot as the biggest midnight opening for an R-rated film at $10.4 million, a figure that more than doubles the take from any other midnight release this year. Writer/director Todd Phillips' follow-up to The Hangover, the highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time, also set a new record as the best opening day on record for a comedy film (and the widest opening of any R-rated film).
In announcing the new records, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution Dan Fellman stated, "From the tracking, we knew audiences couldn't wait for another Hangover, but these numbers are through the roof. Leave it to Todd Phillips to create a new must-see comedy that has people lining up at the box office and rolling in the aisles. Congratulations to him, the cast and all the other talents behind the film on making another unforgettable comedy."
The Hangover Part 2 is breaking records in spite of the fact critics aren't fans of this sequel. The film currently rests at just 34% fresh onRottenTomatoes, while the original film sits at 79% fresh.
I personally went to watch it on Saturday with my girlfriend, and we loved it. These critics are harsh and don't know what they are talking about. But here's an update.
The Hangover Part II has earned an estimated $118 million since opening late Wednesday night, movie industry website boxofficemojo.com reported Sunday. It's the second biggest opening weekend of the year, and the most lucrative ever for a live-action comedy."
