The Green Hornet Stings The Box Office Taking In $34 Million In Its Opening Weekend

greenhornet2011Just in case you were wondering how Seth Green would do as a super hero, pretty good it seems. The remake of the classic TV show topped all comers this weekend at the box office taking in a whooping $34 million dollars. Following the death of his father, Britt Reid(Seth Rogen), heir to his father’s large company, teams up with his late dad’s assistant Kato (Jay Chou) to become a masked crime fighting team. I didn’t know what to make of this remake but so far I am hearing good things about it and it seems fans are enjoying it. Coming in at a disappointing #2 was the buddy comedy “The Dilemma” starring Vince Vaughn and Kevin James which took in a little over $17 million. From there “True Grit” stayed strong taking in $11.2 million to take 3rd. Rounding out the top 5 was “King’s Speech” and “The Black Swan” with approximately $9 million and $8.1 million respectively. Check the entire top 12 after the jump.
