Top 10 Movies at the Weekend Box Office 31JUL2011, Cowboys & Aliens

Date: August / 02 / 2011 + Comments: 1

Cowboys & Aliens

Cowboys & Aliens lassoed approximately 5,500 screens at 3,750 locations for its run, and claiming a first-place opening only slightly mitigated an otherwise disappointing gross for a movie that tried desperately to be a blockbuster. The sci-fi Western’s launch was on par with Super 8 ($35.5 million) and Battle: Los Angeles ($35.6 million) but behind District 9 ($37.4 million), and none of those movies reached blockbuster territory. Universal’s exit polling indicated that 53 percent of Cowboys’ audience was male and 63 percent was age 30 years and older.
