Box Office Breakdown: Jennifer Lopez Needs a Back-up Plan

The Back-Up Plan

Jennifer Lopez’s recent performance at the box office - like her number at the American Music Awards - wasn’t exactly flawless.

, Lopez’s first major release since 2005, was not what moviegoers had planned for their few days off. The romantic comedy, which co-stars Alex O’Loughlin, earned a lackluster $12.2 million in ticket sales and a seat behind the five-week-old How to Train Your Dragon.

CBS Films did have one thing to brag about though: it’s movie performed better than any new wide release this weekend. (Granted, that isn’t saying much.) - an actioner featuring a large ensemble of actors - wrangled up a disappointing $9.4 million for fourth place. While that was enough to surpass last week’s champ, Kick-Ass, the two films were only separated by about $400,000. Meanwhile, Oceans, Disney’s nature documentary, landed in 8th place with $6.1 million.

Box Office Breakdown: Kick-Ass Saves Its Ass

Kick-Ass

had a hard time living up to its name this weekend.

Despite high expectations for the R-rated superhero entry, Matthew Vaughn’s film barely won the box office battle. In fact, it looked on Sunday like Lionsgate’s actioner would place second overall. Fortunately, the final numbers worked in Kick-Ass’ favor…but not by much. Less than $200,000 separated from this week’s chart topper.

Meanwhile, attendance at ‘s services was good enough to get the comedy a fourth place debut. Neil LaBute’s remake of the 2007 British film recovered most of its budget - it cost approximately $21 million to make - with its $16.2 million gross.

Box Office Breakdown: Titans Disappoints Date Night

Clash of the Titans

Looks like Sunday wasn’t a great day for a .

Despite early predictions that the Steve Carell/Tina Fey laugher would end the weekend with a $27.1 million take and a first place finish, the movie wound up falling slightly short. When the final numbers were turned in, the Shawn Levy-directed comedy had raked in just $25.2 million in ticket sales - positioning it right between and How to Train Your Dragon.

Although Date Night did not come close to surpassing Carell’s personal best (Get Smart opened to $38.7 million in 2008), it did top Fey’s previous high (Baby Mama‘s $17.4 million from 2008).

Meanwhile, the only other entry in this weekend’s Top 10 was a movie that only opened in 897 theaters. - which only grossed $1.1 million and a $1,228 per screen average - helped push Shutter Island and She’s Out of My League off the charts.

Clash of the Titans

’ use of 3D may not have been favorably reviewed, but that didn’t keep the remake from conquering the box office.

The Warner Bros. film, which was delayed for a last-minute technology upgrade, officially became the biggest Easter weekend opener to date. Titans’ $61.2 million topped previous holiday champ Scary Movie 4 and bested 1999’s The Matrix to become the best April release ever. (That 1999 film debuted to $27.8 million.)

Box Office Breakdown: How to Train Your Dragon Soars to #1

How to Train Your Dragon

Jay Baruchel may be dating a girl out of his league, but he’s now got a dragon under his command.

Friday’s premiere of had both Baruchel and Gerard Butler pulling double-duty over the weekend. The animated feature easily surpassed both Out of My League, Bounty Hunter and - most importantly - the reigning champ (Alice in Wonderland) to take the win with a $43.7 million take.

Unfortunately, even higher ticket prices couldn’t lift the 3-D feature past a previous Dreamworks entry. Last March, Monsters vs. Aliens towered over the competition with a $59.3 million bow.

Meanwhile, - the weekend’s only other new wide release - warmed up to a $14 million debut and a third-place finish.

Box Office Breakdown: Wimpy Kid Bests the Bounty Hunter

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Two out of three ain’t bad.

Although Hollywood has yet to present a real threat to Alice in Wonderland, two studios this weekend made strong attempts. , based on a series of Jeff Kinney books, proved there was more than enough room for kid-friendly fare at the box office. Fox’s adaptation unfolded to over $22 million in ticket sales - approximately $12 million shy of the three-time winner, but enough for second place.

- starring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler - also managed to nab a decent bounty for itself during this frame. Sony’s critically-panned comedy grossed over $20 million, falling just short of Diary.

Meanwhile, , Friday’s only other wide release, came a distant fourth with $6.1 million.
