Sony film nets $17.1 million Thursday
Despite being poorly reviewed, Will Smith and ‘Hancock’ reigned again at the box office Thursday, netting $17.1 million from 3,965 theatres, down 2% from Wednesday ($17.4 million).The Sony/Columbia tentpole has earned $41.3 million to date and is poised to surpass the $100 million domestic mark by Sunday. Still, the ‘Hancock’ figures aren’t ‘super’ compared to other Will Smith openings and with the recent box office success of ‘Wall-E,’ Sony is expecting smaller Fourth of July numbers than originally projected.
