Snow White and the Huntsman had the fourth largest opening this year with $56.2 million, despite predictions of it bombing. I guess Snow White did get her prince, the audience, to rescue her after all. If only Universal’s Battleship could of had a prince.
The lack of competition played a major role in Snow Whites and the Huntsman’s success. It was the only wide release last week, that played on more than 1,000 screens. Yes, I’m talking about you For Greater Glory, which opened with a very disappointing $1.9 million.
So how long will Snow White and the Huntsman stay on top? It’s not sure. It may be a good film to see while the kids are at Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted. Or skip Snow White and check out the much hyped Prometheus.
