Box Office Numbers For Hercules

Hercules, starring The Rock, raked in 29 million dollars this weekend. This was good for second place, behind Lucy. It did beat the studio estimates, and also brought in 28.7 million dollars overseas. Hercules will open in plenty of other countries this coming week, including Norway, Portugal, India, Finland and the Netherlands. 

The Associated Press has a new article up talking about The Rock’s leading role and how he succeeds. 

“He can be very serious and menacing and imposing, and he has this ability to melt it all away, which is why women show up for a movie like this,” Colligan said. “He has a lot of appeal for kids.”

Isenberg: This number is extremely successful in its first week in the box office. I have seen it and was surprising impressed with the actual storyline of the movie. This is The Rock’s real first successful leading role, which had him the primary focus the entire movie. If you have seen it, what do you think about The Rock in his role as Hercules?
