21 Jump Street Outguns The Competition At The Box Office.. Cue Sequel!

Published

on

Lashings of critical praise, proven Box Office draws involved and the luxury of being the only wide released new entry in the US this weekend, there was a sense of inevitability about ’21 Jump Street’ dominating the field.

 

Banishing any chance of a Lorax led upset, the Jonah Hill/Channing Tatum bromance proved too strong for the Dr Seuss outfit and claimed the top spot with $35 million. A budget reported to be around the $45 million mark, it’s a matter of time until it exceeds such an amount.

 

With such success, Sony have already been pinning their hopes on a return outing and from what we understand, Jonah Hill (who co-wrote the script) and screenwriter Michael Bacall are all set to lay down ideas for a sequel. However, details are currently scarce as far as the return of other on screen talents e.g. Tatum are concerned.

 

Here’s the full BO rundown…

1. 21 Jump Street $35 million

2. The Lorax $22.8 million

3. John Carter $13.5 million

4. Project X $4 million

5. A Thousand Words $3.7 million

6. Act Of Valor $3.6 million

7. Safe House $2.8 million

8.  Journey 2: The Mysterious Island $2.4 million

9. Casa De Mi Padre $2.2 million

10. This Means War $2.1 million
