New In Theaters: 'American Reunion', 'Titanic 3D'
Having made more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office (second only to Avatar), Titanic is back for more after going through the 3D conversion process. Its accomplishment at the box office is particularly impressive considering the movie is drama where the special effects are not its biggest selling point.
Titanic 3D was released on Wednesday and has already made more than $8 million after Thursday, and it is well on its way to an estimated $20 million haul over the three day weekend. The 3D conversion cost $18 million so it will more than pay for itself.
The last time we saw the American Pie gang together was for the wedding between Jim and Michelle in 2003's American Wedding. They're coming together for a reunion in American Reunion and we'll get to see how their lives turned out after the events of the 2003 movie. Hopefully, we'll get some laughs out of it too.
With a Tomatometer of 44%, American Reunion is the worst-reviewed of the American Pie feature films. Critics say the movie works as a piece of nostalgia, but as a comedy, it fails to do anything new.
No matter, the franchise still has enough good will for American Reunion to be the number one movie at the box office this weekend -- somewhere in the neighborhood of $30-$32 million range.
The Hunger Games is still going strong and may make about $30 million this weekend. The movie has made over $380 million worldwide thus far.
