Will Smithâs âHancockâ shined again this weekend amidst a busy week at the box office while very few people decided to âMeet Daveâduring itâs opening weekend. Even though âHancockâ fell short of the number one spot which went to âHellboy IIâ in the U.S. the film did claim the international circuit grossing an estimated $71.4 million pushing itâs overseas tally to $180.2 million within two weeks. Smithâs second opening weekend reeled in an estimated $21.8 million stemming from first run showings in over 580 screens in Russia and over 750 screens in France which according to the Hollywood Reporter contributed to the films $180.2 million total. Foxâs release of the Eddie Murphy comedy âMeet Daveâ came up short in itâs opening weekend. According to the Hollywood Reporter, theater goers decided not to âMeet Daveâ and Murphy reportedly did the same when he was a âno showâ at his own premiere last week. Opening at $5.3 million âMeet Daveâ has been classified a bomb for the actor who ran into similar trouble with his other âspace themed â film âThe Adventures of Pluto Nashâ which had a similar opening in 2002. Wesley Morris gave Murphyâs film a one-star review in The Boston Globe stating: âThereâs a tremendous possibility that Murphy has no friends. What kind of pal would let the star of âPluto Nashâ near another science-fiction comedy?â Murphy is currently working on âA Thousand Words,â a comedy about a guy who only has 1,000 words left to speak before he dies which is due for release next year. Hellboy II won this weekâs box office grossing an estimated 35.9 million.
