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.
