Monday Box Office Report – Let's rather not go back to Sin City

1 min read


Bombing massively, the Sin City sequel failed to capture any slice of the box office, settling in for an eighth place debut with $6.4 million taken in domestic ticket sales. That’s a massive fall from the first film, which hit theaters nine years ago and made $29.1 million. And that’s a terrible total that has inflation and higher 3D ticket prices still added to it.


This of course has allowed Guardians Of The Galaxy to retake the number one spot, while If I Stay opened to solid numbers, along the lines of over $16 million. Here’s how everyone else did at the North American box office:

  • Guardians Of The Galaxy – $17.6 Million
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – $16.8 Million
  • If I Stay – $16.3 Million
  • Let’s Be Cops – $11 Million
  • When The Game Stands Tall – $9 Million
  • The Giver – $6.7 Million
  • The Expendables 3 – $6.6 Million
  • Sin City: A Dame To Kill For – $6.4 Million
  • The Hundred Foot Journey – $5.5 Million
  • Into The Storm – $3.8 Million

Top ten departures this week include Lucy, Step Up All In and Hercules. Brett Ratner’s re-imagining of the demi-god made a poor $150 million worldwide, while Lucy was far more profitable, raking in over $240 million internationally and giving Luc Besson a much needed hit film. Step Up All In closed a three week run with a lacklustre international take of over $67 million, down from Step Up Revolution which managed to bust out over $140 million in 2012.

  1. No one asked for Sin City 2, no one was interested in it during it’s development at all. How’d they get it greenlit?

      I can completely understand a sequel. The first movie was very successful and pretty well received by critics. What I don’t understand is a sequel nearly a decade later. What made the original groundbreaking and different is by now pretty run of the mill.

        You’re spot on. If they had struck while the iron was hot, a decade ago, it would’ve been a hit.

    Damn, that must hurt. I wonder why it crashed so hard?
